Velvets aren't old-fashion, they versatile


Velvets are going strong in 2017 with its deep tone and rich textures. For centuries, velvets have been known for its prestigious material and soft texture and this year, it keeps getting sophisticated in style. 

Many people associate velvets as old-fashion or uninspiring but with stunning palette of colours, from timeless grey and delicate rose shades to deep jewel tones and heritage hues, velvet has never been hotter.

The reason why velvets have become so popular this season is because its so versatile. It can be used for upholstery and curtaining purposes while also working across hard surfaces as flocking. Sophisticated, elegant, and luxurious, its a natural partner for other current trends, such as metallics and geometrics.

Make a statement with by covering a sofa with a velvet material and then contrast with chairs in another material, such as linen or cotton. Add scatter cushions in the same velvet material. If a sofa is too much right now, cover an ottaman in a colour that can be updated for the next season.

When it comes to curtaining, add a little texture to it by using crushed velvet instead. Try keeping it simple by steering clear of heavy tassels and tiebacks unless you’re aiming for a period feel, and mix with sheer voiles that can serve as a standalone window treatment during the warmer periods.
