Snuggly and soft, luxurious and lovely, we’re crushing on all things velvet right now.
From cool coverlets to sumptuous sofas and elegant armchairs, bring a glam, Gatsby-esque vibe to your pad with a dash of this fab fabric and see your style elevated from so-so to swank in an instant.
Posh and plush, it touchability is the secret to its enduring appeal – it’s been a fave in la-de-da drawing rooms for centuries – along with the nap which helps it reflect the light and bring it to life. Add in the fact velvet is a dream to dye, achieving rich, intense colours, and there’s little wonder this fine fabric never goes out of style.
There is of course the fact velvet does require careful cleaning, and it’s not especially pet or toddler-friendly, but we’re of the firm view it’s worth the extra care and attention required for a luxe look you’ll always love.
