Oh velvet, how we love you. Where this glamour-puss fabric used to be confined to ‘special occasion’ furniture and spaces that were, dare we say it, a tad fusty – now velvet has been reimagined for the furniture we use every day. Habitat’s Hendricks
sofa is possibly at its best when decked out in feel-me orange velvet, though bright mustard yellow and teal are pretty amazing too. Then we have the retro-inspired shape of the Abel sofa, which is a sight to behold in royal purple velvet. Go on, dip your toe in to the trend. It’s all about mixing plush velvet with utilitarian materials like metal and oak furniture for a contemporary look and feel. If you’re still not totally sure, try placing a few velvet cushions
in pink or grey on the bed or the sofa – until you’re totally hooked.
