Add Velvet Furniture to your Color Scheme

I’m really loving velvet furniture right now.

Velvet’s rich texture looks great in any setting — glam, traditional or modern.  And when it comes to color, velvet just seems to bring out the best in any hue.  Colored velvet looks so delicious, and I love that is has an iridescent quality to it.

If you’re not sure about using this fabric, rest assured.  Today’s velvet is not your grandparent’s velvet.  Wait!  In some cases, it is!  Retro velvet pieces are in demand because they create such a chic eclectic feel when paired with current pieces (and remember…everything old is new again).  Still skeptical?  Check out these velvety photos.  You may be surprised:

  1. I would like to say that Velvet is really very important fabric for home furniture because its fibers absorb color extremely well. Due to the extreme thickness of the nap on velvet, furniture upholstered in velvet can be dyed without removing the fabric, if extreme care is taken.

  2. I am so in love with velvet this year so thanks for all the great photos. I am reupholstering a bench in green velvet with bold nailhead trim for the foot of my bed and cant wait to see it. YOu can follow my remodel progress on wordpress at http://jenrick1.wordpress.com/2012/07/05/moving-day/

    I have enjoyed your adorable paintings for quite a while also.
