Crushing on Velvet

Crushing on Velvet

Just what is it about velvet that makes it so appealing?!  Maybe it’s the rich colors, the luxurious feel, the sumptuous look, or all of the above and then some! Velvet has been around for thousands of years but its allure has not faded! This opulent fabric was once reserved for royalty but thanks to modern manufacturing methods; we can all use it to upgrade our interiors.

Velvet can be made from a wide variety of fibers ranging from silks to synthetic blends to cottons. Silk velvet has a beautiful drape and an undeniable shimmer! Cotton velvet is sumptuous and durable and has a softer sheen to it. Synthetic fibers can mimic just about any velvety look!

These shimmery seating pieces are gorgeous and entice you to sit in them!

If you love the look but want to bring it in on a smaller scale, you can layer your interior space with velvet pillows or ottomans!

Even this handsome guy knows he is being upstaged by those magnificant purple ottomans!

It is really amazing to go through our velvet fabric books in the studio and see all the different patterned velvet options! There is everything from geometrics to stripes to snakeskin velvets! Sensual lines and textures combined with contrasting surfaces really help to achieve visual luxury!



Velvets can be used no matter what your style preference, this modern hounds tooth velvet or the large scale Greek key pattern can add sophistication and a contemporary feel to a room!

For a more traditional look, you could use a velvet damask or a quilted velvet.


Velvet - so many choices, so luxurious!

This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that,
how you presented it. Too cool!

show the same outcome.

Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and
I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you
could point me in the direction of a good platform.
