A well-known material is experiencing a fantastic revival. Velvet has arrived in the living room and has become one of the interior trends of the year 2017. For a long time, the material was regarded as fusty and old-fashioned - a high quality fabric, reserved exclusively for the nobility. Those days are over and its image has changed. Velvet brings luxurious comfort into our homes.
Velvet is a truly royal material and conveys cosiness, softness and elegance. In interior design, the material presents itself as surprisingly subtle and not at all obtrusive, but always leaves a splendid impression. Velvet cuts as good a figure as a textile wall covering as it does a handsome sofa or cushion cover. Combined with straight lines or as an effective accent with heavy furniture - both bring success.
Velvet has style and is a material adapted to the time for modern living spaces.
A feel-good atmosphere of a special kind emerges.
As is often the case, design trends can combine with one another very well. Of course, these trends also inspire and influence each other. The vintage look or retro chic can be brought even more intensively into focus with velvet. The charming Scandinavian style with its bright colours and clear shapes, also harmonises excellently with the comfortably warm, expressive power of velvet.
Strong colours further emphasise the optical and tactile properties of this fine material. Lush green, rich red or deep dark blue flatter the material. Fine pastel colours or subtle grey shades are just as outstanding and can be skilfully combined with smooth surfaces.
