Velvet is currently one of the hottest trends this season, dominating countless Pinterest pins and Instagram hearts with its plush, rich texture. Many rooms this season have seen makeovers due to this trend in cool jewel tones and cheery pastels.
Most people associate velvet with an outdated look reminiscent of the 70’s. However, it’s currently on the top of interior design trends due to its versatility in matching mid-century, or even Scandinavian interiors.
Velvet is a lavish fabric that’s soft to the touch can add drama and luxe feel to any room. In this day and age of experiential interior design, the fabric is a perfect choice to soothe all the senses.

If there’s one thing that’s certain with velvet is that it will stand out in any room. While most people go for a dark hued velvet piece of furniture, why not deviate from the norm and choose blush or green?
