Velvet – The Soft Touch
Friday, 31 May 2019
If this year’s Oscars are anything to go by, then velvet is in. And we don’t mean the classic little black dress – it was the men who were sporting velvet tuxes and dinner jackets in a variety of colours. Velvet has also made it from the red carpet to the red sofa. Lime Modern Living are stocking the latest styles and the Sits Mattias Sofa can be upholstered in a wide choice of colours and fabrics, including velvet.
To be among the stars, head to Oliver Bonas whose Constellation Velvet Cushion – combining plush velvet with an entrancing star print, is the perfect addition to any sofa.

Or you could take your seat on a comfy dining chair - the Calligaris Love Chair is upholstered with a velvet seat pad with detailed stitching on the backrest and seat. And to keep you in the lime light, Graham and Green’s Tulip Pink Velvet Lampshade is a must, with its gold inner drum that emits a warming glow around a room.
With online searches for velvet going up by 400 per cent, velvet continues to be one to watch out for in 2019. As one of our all-time classic fabrics, velvet exudes luxury with a soft, tactile surface that has taken both our homes and wardrobes by storm. Unlike other fabrics, it has no raised weaves or loose threads, which makes it difficult for the material to snag. And with its rug-like flat pile, it makes it highly durable and an ideal material for the home.
There is a huge range of chic velvet pieces out there that will keep you ahead of the trends for 2019. So, indulge yourself and embrace that soft touch.
