Bold & Punchy Velvets

14 October 2020

Velvets have long been used to showcase richness and elegance, but over time they had become a slightly dated option — until now. Interior Designers are ‘crushing’ over this fabric choice once again, using bold colour to give our spaces that extra punch of style. The material is a great way of adding texture and depth, and can come in a wide variety of colours and styles.

Consider the Annie Soft Chair or the Igloo Chair by Calligaris, their simple frames allow the bold colours of the velvet covered seats to take centre stage. They can create a brilliant contrast against more subtle style features, or set the tone as the main colour theme for a space. 

For a more subtle introduction, the Maya Chair by Connubia Calligaris and the Ines Chair by Calligaris will both work well. Available in a wide range of colours, these chairs can both push and pull focus with ease. The minimal frame designs again allow the seats to draw your attention, whilst the chair shapes will suit most spaces without taking away from any signature pieces.

And If you want to really highlight velvet within your space, we think the Stella Sofa by Sits is a great choice. Its modular design available in various configurations means you can fit this into most spaces, and the bold and brilliant colours of Classic Velvet or the washable Bellis fabric make a powerful and luxuriant statement. 

Why not introduce a bold and punchy velvet into your space — and embrace this latest interior design crush.
