Sumptuous, glamorous, shimmering, elegant, luxurious, cozy. All of these words describe velvet, which is enjoying a revitalized recognition among interior designers today. Forget the staid red velvet of yesteryear that covers those tattered sofas and chairs in your grandmother’s attic. There are an array of dark, rich velvets and buttery soft pastels and neutrals that convey elegance and modern glamour.
Cut velvet creates beautiful textiles for furniture, throws and curtain panels. The intricate details of floral-inspired patterns add glamour and elegance to a decorating scheme. Geometric patterns serve well on accent pieces for the contemporary room.
Tufting adds dimension and sophistication to velvet furniture. The classic Chesterfield sofa looks divine in velvet, as does a luxurious chaise lounge. A contemporary sectional sofa in velvet invites cozy snuggling and warms up a modern space.
The bedroom becomes a sumptuous sanctuary with a velvet headboard, cozy chairs and velvet throws. Pair the velvet headboard with lush bed linens with satin trim and shimmering gold and silver accents for a touch of glamour.
Turn the dining room into an elegant space with velvet covered chairs and window treatments. Add drama with decorative trim and rope tie-backs. Pair brightly colored velvet chairs with contemporary acrylic or glass tables for a modern twist on tradition.
Explore the jewel-like colors of ruby red, emerald green, sapphire blue and deep amethyst to add color to your living areas. Sink into sofas and chairs in neutral gray, brown, tan and cream velvet for your contemporary or modern home.
From traditional to contemporary and thoroughly modern rooms, velvet can bring a touch of sophistication, glamour and comfort to every space.
