Velvet fabric for that luxe look

There is an elegance and opulence when using velvet fabric in curtains, sofas, armchairs and cushions. There are so many different velvets on the market at the moment and they are all very on trend. Some velvets have a crushed look to them whilst others are more mottled. Some are cut velvets with a pattern whilst others are smooth as silk. You can get printed velvets too so there really is something to tempt most.

Velvets also come in a diverse range of beautiful neutrals, rich jewel like colours and soft pastels to suit most interiors. In winter they give a feeling of warmth yet in summer teamed with a sheer they can almost have a lightness about them. Once the bastion of a very formal room they can work just as well in a casual family home setting.

By definition velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive soft feel. Velvet can be made from either natural or synthetic fibres.
