Material Crush: VELVET

If you’ve been following trends in interior design recently, you’ve probably noticed that we are loving furnishings and fixtures that are a bit more luxe. One of the trends we’ve been falling for lately is velvet.

Are you crushing as much as we are?

Throw Pillows

Pillows – Ok, maybe you’re just starting small. Layering in velvet throw pillows is the perfect way to introduce this texture to your home. Consider the luster velvet options from West Elm.

Velvet Arm Chairs

Accent Chair – Maybe you’re feeling a bit more daring. You can make a big impact with a deliciously deep teal or a pretty pink accent chair.

Velvet Window Treatments

Curtains – Would you dress your windows in sumptuousness? You’re getting closer to crushing on velvet as much as we are.

Velvet Sofas

Sofa – If you’re at this level, you’re pretty solidly in love with velvet. You can take the look more traditional by using a curved form with tufting or go modern with a sleeker shape.

Velvet Headboards

Headboard – Nothing says “Hollywood glam” – or, “I absolutely love velvet” – like a full-on, upholstered bed. At this point, you are head over heels with this trend.

Whether you’re throwing it into the mix of other decor items within your home or letting it stand out as a statement piece, velvet furnishings and decor are great for adding richness to any space.
