Velvet... without a doubt the most sumptuous of fabrics, perfect for injecting glamour and luxurious style into any room. A velvet armchair or dining chair will take centre stage in your living room or dining room, and will wonderfully highlight the beauty of other pieces. Here are a few of our ideas of how you can embrace the velvet trend in your home (and a few of our favourite pieces from our website!).
If you are looking to add unrivalled glamour to your rustic dining table, velvet dining chairs are wonderful. These luxury dining room chairs are beautifully unique, with the tub-style seat and gorgeous quilted detailing to the back, perfect for adding a fantastic style statement around your dining room table.
Another pair of dining chairs which would look simply superb with any wood table are these gorgeous velvet dining chairs (a gorgeous new addition to our studio, if you're interested in taking a look at it in real life). With their simple padded seat with elegant button detailing, contrasted against the sleek, metal base, these dining chairs would look stunning with any reclaimed wood or oak dining table.
For something similar, the opulent blue upholstery of these sublime velvet dining chairs would make a stunning modern addition.
And what about how to style velvet?
A vibrant coloured velvet like blue, green or pink will certainly make a statement on its own, so let it do all the talking. Tone down the rest of your decor, with neutral reclaimed or oak furniture and stick to just a few simple accessories, to ensure your decor doesn't look too much. With more neutral colours, like grey, black or beige, you can get a little more creative. A pop of a jewel-toned colour in the pink or purple family will only add to the opulent feel of the velvet.
When it comes to accessories, a large mirror will bring light to any room, opening up the space and will allow you to play around with colour. Keep other accessories to a minimum, using glass and metallic finishes to keep the room bright. A statement glass vase on your sideboard and a serving dish, or fruit bowl on the table will add elegant style, without adding too much 'clutter'.
