Trend : Velvet

Thank goodness for velvet. Whether it is a delicate trim on a pillow or the whole sofa, velvet brings sophistication, beauty and most importantly, texture. Velvet is continuing its journey into the runways of Fall 2013 collections. Here’s a look how it works perfectly into modern, upholstered furniture:

Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection used quite a bit of velvet throughout. This was one of my favorite looks. Others included simple accent trim and larger garments of the heavy material. Perfect inspiration!

Custom Pillows by Pulp Design Studios
These custom pillows showcase the different uses and looks of velvet. Pillows are an easy way to add a trend to your home, especially when they look this good.
These dining chairs look comfortable enough to stay for dinner, dessert and an evening drink. This space is quite simple,  naturally the eye is drawn to the texture and color of these chairs.

This is the Sonia Chair from Neiman Marcus. I long for an accent chair in a bold velvet! Paired with that gold end table, this chair adds so much life and party.
For a large piece of furniture in complete velvet, this color is a wise choice. It is subtle and works perfectly at adding warmth and soft texture to a space filled with sleek, chrome accents.
