Va Va Velvet
If there is a material that always exudes luxury, it’s velvet.
We usually think of velvet in a traditional way, like on a Chesterfield sofa or a Louis armchair, but it is also making strides into modern design and in creating contemporary and transitional spaces.
This sleek design from Linxpiration uses that traditional velvet sofa in a clean, yet glamorous, way. Adding the gold stumps against the rich texture of the sofa creates a sophisticated look.
On the modern side, I love how Brabbu uses velvet on cut-out barstools. Usually you see barstools in leather or a performance material because they’ll be in or near a kitchen. This bright green and rich texture gives a relaxed touch to velvet without taking away its luxury.
