Using Velvet as a Staple in Your Interior Design

If you think velvet is just a dated fabric that springs eternal from the 1990's, you would be oh-so-wrong. This stunning and uniquely textured fabric is making in a comeback in a major way. We're seeing it splashed across couches, covering pillows, hanging on drapes, and as a special upholstery piece. If you're looking for some design inspiration, check out the incredible colors and dramatic views that velvet creates in interior design.
