Rich. Luxurious. Beautiful.
How do you feel about velvet?
I am in love with velvet fabric. The soft hand, subtle sheen and incredible depth it has.
And though I am a neutral loving girl…I have to admit… High Point Market showrooms were giving me some serious inspiration with bold and deep colors.
Velvet upholstery isn’t new of course.
It has been around for years and years- and whether it is covering a whole piece like a sofa or a chair- or used as an accent- it is- for lack of a better description-
Rich velvety goodness AKA- Incredible.
And Velvet is definitely on trend again this market.
And if you instantly have a thought of the velvet of years past…
the ones that were a bit over the top and over the everything else- toss those aside folks.
This velvet is pretty perfect.
And I just may be switching from a neutral velvet I was ordering…
to something bold and beautiful after this Market- because it was so beautiful every time I saw it.
Here are some of the inspirations I snapped from
Hello rich green velvet goodness…
More than mildly obsessed with this one. And the tack heads just finish it perfectly. I would love to see this with brass tacks too- yummy!
Universal also had this rich ruby red- I love the simple lines of this sofa too.
Gorgeous teal velvet? YES. YES. YES.
And how about a soft blush? I mean- there isn’t even a question. Love.
I mean… I am not usually a huge green girl- but green was talking to me this market.
A pop of rich gold? Absolutely perfect.
This is from Ray Booth at Hickory Furniture and it shows just how gorgeous even a couple of pillows for a touch of velvet can be.
Sonder Living had an abundance of beautiful velvet.
Talk about rich and elegant- how about this eggplant? Incredible.
I love the gold detailing as well.
And this gold detailing…
And the softer side at Sonder Living- blushing blush
A deep charcoal gray velvet chair fits in perfectly with neutrals and is simply beautiful.
A most modern take- this lucite chair has just a touch of pearly velvet fabric.
A little bold and sassy and so on trend- channel back rich dusty coral.
A mix of bold blue and blush is a fun twist and youthful approach with velvet
And in their Cosmopolitan Living collection- the pastels are perfect for a teen room or dorm room
I loved this rich true red velvet by Sarah Richardson
and also the smoky blue that she uses on repeat.
This was a favorite stop for inspiration- and this sofa was stunning in subtle beige/blush velvet.
In their bathroom- they showed their bolder side with a rich teal velvet settee.
So as you can see… velvet on repeat everywhere at market.
And I was loving it.
My eyes and hands seemed to be drawn to it at every stop- it is just so beautiful.
What do you think?
Would you incorporate a bit of velvet in your home?
Are you going bold and beautiful or staying on the softer side?
As I mentioned, I just may be in bringing a bit of velvet goodness in to a new room refresh-and I haven’t yet decided whether I am going to walk on the wild side…
so stay tuned.
Happy Tuesday everyone.
I was compensated to share my market favorites with you- but all loves and opinions are my own.
