Interior Inspiration - Velvet

Whether you get your home inspiration from interiors magazines, Pinterest, or hashtags on Instagram, the increasing use of velvet won’t have escaped you. It is fast becoming something of a trans-seasonal fabric, and it seems it’s here to stay.

We asked our show home designers, Edward Thomas Interiors, what they thought of the growing trend along with the best ways to incorporate it into your home:

“Velvet is a great material to use in the home - it provides a bit of luxe and great comfort.

“It is not as impractical as many people think; It is very easy to clean and is also great for pet owners as cats can’t get their claws in to it!

If you can, a sofa or armchair in velvet is a luxurious investment that will provide years of joy. Alternatively, velvet cushions and throws are a great way to get the look and feel without breaking the budget.”

Here are some shots of our favourite velvet looks in our show homes:
