Trend Alert – Vintage Velvets
We’re coveting this sumptuous material more than ever as it makes its way into homes for 2016. The glamorous modern deco trend has taken the interiors agenda by storm and we’ve fallen in love with the look. That’s why we’ve unveiled a fabulous collection of indulgent vintage velvets and a striking new gold show wood option alongside our new Fifty Nine Corner Sofa.
Soft and smooth to touch, luxurious velvet has captured our hearts. If you’d like to add a little decadence to your living room you really can’t go wrong with a gorgeous velvet sofa. Strong inky blue hues are trending this year so Matt Velvet Indigo is the perfect choice for your living room. Transform your space with dark walls and metallic accents to really bring the luxe look to life.
The new Matt Velvet collection includes some of the most decadent colours the Spring/Summer season has to offer. Midnight hues, deep shades of peacock and jewel tones are totally on-trend so we’ve selected a colour palette featuring berry, shell, topaz, teal, copper, flamingo and emerald shades.
We’ve also introduced a new Gold wood finish to the range; an opulent accompaniment to the velvet fabric. If you’re prefer to keep things dark then the Black Lacquer or American Walnut wood finish also look great against a dark backdrop.
Understated shades also work well as part of this trend and still retain that feeling of sheer luxury. We love laid back tones of mink and shell for a comforting and pretty space. A simple way to incorporate the trend without a full room makeover is by adding some sumptuous scatters. Dress your sofa with a handful of velvet cushions in a range of your favourite colours. The subtle sheen of the fabric will cosy up your space and add instant glam.
For a glamorous yet modern look, velvet is the answer. Whether you opt for a velvet sofa, accent chair or simply a sprinkling of scatters, this gorgeous fabric will bring warmth and a little vintage charm to your living room. See our ‘Vintage Velvets’ Pinterest board for more inspiration!
