Velvet: a timeless material

Velvet has truly established itself as a timeless material. It symbolises the quintessence of elegance but also comfort thanks to its soft touch. Velvet comes back every year and never ceases to inspire furniture designers.

How to adopt velvet

Polymorphic, velvet is mainly found on living room furniture such as sofas and armchairs. In small touches, it can be seen on bedspreads, throw, cushions, poufs
As you can see, velvet will easily find its place in a decoration that is meant to be timeless.

Velvet goes well with organic materials (precious wood, linen, silk…) as well as with more industrial materials such as brass or glass

A little bit of history

Velvet takes its name from the Latin ‘Vilosus’. Although it plays an important role in the manufacture of clothing, this noble material is also used by designers as a furnishing fabric. Leading pieces in the world of design furniture are covered in it. These include the Camaleonda sofa by architect and designer Mario Bellini and the Togo designed in 1973 by Michel Ducaroy

Velvet: a symbol of elegance

Thanks to its shiny finish and the noble colours in which velvet is available, this material allows you to create a refined atmosphere. In short, making your home warmer with velvet does not require too much effort and is done with subtlety.
