Velvet is making a comeback in today’s interiors. No longer fragile and requiring special care, the new velvets belong in all rooms, even high use ones. Velvet is showing up in contemporary big city lofts, country estates and even here at Hickory Furniture Mart. This sumptuous fabric knows no style boundaries and is no longer confined to formal living spaces. From foyer to the bedroom, today’s velvets are at home in any room.
Add a velvet bench in the entry or sofa in the living room. An upholstered banquette or dining chairs take velvety fabrics into the dining room. Traditional pieces are readily available, as are modern new designs. The range of colors is amazing, including soft neutrals like dove gray, deep rich jewel tones, chocolate brown and sophisticated black.
The easiest room in the house to decorate with velvet is the bedroom. Whether it’s your master suite or guest room, making a style statement with velvet is so simple. An upholstered headboard offers instant design gratification. Just choose your favorite, purchase it, have it delivered and enjoy—that’s it! Since Victorian times, velvet has been a luxurious fabric of choice for the chaise lounge. Comfortable and beautiful velvet chairs and footstools are another way to bring the softness of velvet into a bedroom. The bed can be the focal point of the room with the most visual impact if you mix velvet with several other textures in comforters, throws, and pillows.
Even the home office can benefit from a touch of velvet. Think upholstered loveseat, chair or just a few pillows to toss on the seating. When you visit North Carolina Furniture Showrooms, you’ll find many other ways to add the rich beauty of velvet to your home’s interior.
