Versatile velvet

Velvet has become the fabric of choice in interiors with a wide range of applications. Sofas, chairs and cushions are increasingly affordable, and more recently, velvet lampshades, lamp bases and other accessories have been added to the list.

But for a long time, velvet has been used in window apparel. Whether that be glamorous floor to ceiling velvet curtains or a more modern take in velvet roman blinds.

You can't go wrong

Velvet has a three-dimensional quality like no other fabric, with a raised pile separate from the ground cloth. It means that the way light catches it can radically change its appearance, affecting the intensity of the colour and creating shimmer and shadow.

Any good interior designer will tell you that the key to creating drama and interest in a space is through the interplay of light and shade. Velvet does this in spades with the pile simultaneously absorbing light and bouncing it around a room. The perfect fabric to frame a window and make a statement.

A velvet blind or pair of curtains work equally well in contemporary or traditional homes, lending a sense of luxury to a room and complementing fabrics used elsewhere. Essentially, you can’t go wrong - - - the only difficulty is in choosing the right colour for your space.
