I don’t know where the love for velvet came from but it is a fabric I love to see on chairs and furniture of all sorts. I think it first came on a trip to L.A. to Orange, the best vintage shop I have ever been in. It isn’t packed to the brim with junk, it is hand selected goodness from all over the world. You can see in the photo below the chairs are in a velvet Missoni inspired fabric which I adore. I bought these chairs especially for this room as they fit perfectly to the conversation pit that was just in front of it. Do you love velvet? Do you have any velvet furniture in your home? I am sharing some of my favorites so how about you tell me which is your favorite?
I love how transitional velvet, it seems to fit to any interior no matter what. The smooth texture adds depth without being too overpowering. In cold winter months it is nice to cozy up with a hot tea and a book on a velvet sofa. What do you think? Do you have a crush on velvet now as well?
