5 Ways To Embrace The Velvet Trend in 2019

With online searches for velvet skyrocketing in 2018, velvet continues to be one to watch as we look to the top interior trends for 2019. As one of our all-time favourite fabric trends, velvet exudes luxury with a soft, tactile surface that has taken both our homes and wardrobes by storm. From upholstered sofas and beds to soft furnishing and even lighting (just wait), there is a huge range of incredible velvet pieces out there that will keep you ahead of the trends for 2019.


Velvet Sofas

A luxury, lounging staple, the velvet sofa is the hero of any living room, and despite its luxe look, doesn’t need to cost the earth. With a range of sizes and colours available, you should be able to find the perfect velvet sofa for you and your budget with ease. Opt for rich jewel tones for a real style statement, a bright shade for the ultimate hero piece (like the yellow velvet ROM sofa seen here) or keep it neutral with soft shades of grey.

Nothing looks quite as inviting as a bold velvet bed with layers of luxurious bed linen. Although Bethan Grey’s collaboration with Anthropologie has well and truly stolen our hearts, there’s no shortage of velvet beds out there worthy of our affections.

Taking velvet lampshades to a whole new level, the new collection from Oliver Bonas combines the trend for velvet with 70s fringing for the ultimate expression of maximalism.

Velvet Accessories

Perfect for introducing a hint of velvet to your home, cushions and throws are a great way to keep up-to-date with the latest trends. Simple and effective, something as small as a couple of new velvet cushions in the colours of the moment can provide an instant update to set your home apart from the rest.
