How to incorporate touches of velvet into your interior design

Velvet is a tactile material that instantly injects a feeling of luxury and opulence into a space. It has been a hugely popular material throughout this autumn/winter season and its popularity is showing no sign of fading. It can appear to be a difficult material to incorporate into a design; however, this does not have to be the case. Even small touches of velvet can make a big impact.

Luxurious seating

A beautifully upholstered velvet armchair or sofa is the perfect place to retreat to on an evening after a busy or stressful day. Armchairs are easily incorporated into a living room or bedroom and the rich sumptuousness of velvet complements simpler cottons and knits beautifully, making a statement without looking too overwhelming. Place a complementary side table next to your velvet chair to establish it as a place to relax; in addition, a plump cushion in a contrasting fabric or colour that can be found elsewhere in your room will add interest and ensure your space looks and feels like one cohesive design.

A velvet sofa can make a bold style statement, especially if it is in a bold colour or juxtaposes a classic design with such a statement material. The shape of a classic Chesterfield sofa lends itself perfectly to being upholstered in such an unexpected and tactile velvet material, especially when the material is in a rich jewel tone such as amethyst or midnight blue. Different types of velvet will, of course, provide differing levels of durability. Although velvet may sound like a difficult material to maintain, this is certainly not always the case.

Window dressing

Thick velvet curtains not only look luxurious but also make your space feel warmer and more inviting. The process of closing your curtains each night, shutting out the outside world and spending a few hours reading or enjoying quality time with your family can feel very satisfying when you have high-quality window dressings. Rich velvet colours such as burgundy and complex greys work especially well in the form of curtains, while making sure they reach the floor will ensure your space feels comforting, sumptuous and indulgent.

Finishing touches

Even the smallest details should never be underestimated. Whether you invest in a velvet upholstered headboard for your bed, a velvet footstool for your favourite chair, simply add a crushed velvet shade to an elegant lamp base or scatter some beautifully-coloured velvet cushions on your sofa, you will be adding a touch of luxury to your home that no other fabric can quite replicate.
