I’ve long been a fan of this gorgeous, soft and supple fabric. A few years ago I took note of its beauty and elegance on furniture and was not surprised, therefore, when I started to notice more and more, specifically for seating, inside the home. Its luxe fibres elevate the overall formality of any space, even those that aim to be casual and relaxed. I noted that these incredibly soft fabrics are best left to those homes or rooms without children, and wonder if, now that my own children are older, that the time might be perfect to transition from the couch dressed in a white cotton duck to one robed in velvet.
Velvet elevates the ordinary. It adds texture, depth, richness and color to any space. The rich jewel tones add warmth and sophistication to even the most relaxed of styles. It is a texture that lends itself to any setting and instantly transforms - making the most ordinary of spaces seem extraordinary. Velvet I do believe, is totally crushing it in the home. With a soon to be 14 year old still at home, is this a wise decision, I wonder?
