Here at Modern and Classic we love the silky and plush finish that velvet gives to your upholstery, making it the perfect fabric to cover your sofa or armchair. It is super soft to the touch and the perfect texture if you’re looking to create a homely and inviting living room.
We think velvet stands out beautifully in any room, and it's a great way to redecorate a classic model of furniture. It really draws the eye in, especially in a noticeable colour such as deep purple or blue. Just one statement piece is enough to restyle your living room.
Velvet is an extremely versatile fabric. It works equally well with traditional styling, as it does with more of a modern look.
Accessories are great for providing our homes with a quick update. Cushions are a great way to revamp a tired sofa, and with so many styles to choose from, there's something for everyone.
Blues, teal and greens are ideal shades to choose as they can be easily updated with lighter accessories for a fresh spring/summer look.
Velvet's can look great in the bedroom too, an upholstered headboard can make a chic transformation. Even a selection of velvet cushions on your bed or a matching velvet throw – can make for the perfect cosy bedroom setting.
Another way to inject velvet into your home is through window treatments. Draped curtains and Roman blinds will help frame your window and are especially suitable during the winter months to help keep drafts out.
Long draped velvet curtains paired with a sheer voile blind compliment each other perfectly, not only do they give you that plush velvet look but the voile adds that extra element of privacy.
