Velvet Crush: The Retro Fabric Making A Comeback – GAFF Interiors

Velvet Crush: The Retro Fabric Making A Comeback

Velvet is having a moment right now, but think less granny more Sketch London. We’re looking at the coolest velvet accessories to have in your life and living room.

Ottone drinks trolley, velvet tassel pendant, table lamp and wall art all from Oliver Bonas.

It was this pic that really did it for us. Velvet has been appearing on ur Insta feeds and in our shopping trips for the last couple weeks, but we weren’t sure we could commit until we saw this image and got inspired. Velvet – though old school and a little bit 80s – can be one of the coolest fabrics to incorporate into your interiors and here’s why.

  • It’s luxurious
  • It’s a little kitsch
  • It makes a statement
  • It’s a great way to inject colour and texture into your space in one fell swoop
  • You needn’t cover you living space in it – a couple of small pieces are enough to nod to the trend

Still unconvinced? Here’s our top velvet inspo to get you going.

This Velvet Parlour Inspo From House of Frasier

We are still waiting for these pieces to arrive at House Of Frasier, but all are due at the end of this month. The gold side tables and mirror act as the perfect contrast to velvet. If you are going to incorporate it into your home, make sure to balance it out with harder materials like metals and mirrored surfaces.

There are those metal legs – the perfect velvet contrast. This couch is the ultimate velvet update and this shade of forest green is warming and cosy.
