Breezy woven wood may have captured our imaginations during the warm days of summer, but plush velvets are making a major statement just in time for fall. Bold yet buttery smooth, velvet fabric and upholstery is glamorous enough to appeal to maximalist-minded design aficionados but creates a classic textured finish that even minimalists can love. Here, Business of Home presents seven standouts to soften any style of interior.
ALPACA VELVET BY MOKUM — JAMES DUNLOP TEXTILES
Woven in Italy with a deep, dense pile, the Alpaca velvet by Mokum comes in your choice of 22 colorways—including Blush, Charcoal, Burnt Orange and Mauve—meaning it’s both sumptuous and versatile.
KEANE SIDE CHAIR IN PERFORMANCE LUXE VELVET — MITCHELL GOLD + BOB WILLIAMS
Available in seven hues, including Denim and Mineral Green, the curved back and plush upholstery of the Keane side chair in performance velvet ensures it’s every bit as comfortable and durable as it is stylish.
SILK VELVET RUFFLE THROW — LINEN SALVAGE ET CIE
The only thing better than a super-soft throw blanket is one with a pretty ruffled trim. Composed of all-natural fibers, this shimmery silk velvet throw comes in three different sizes and 12 unique colorways, including Chambray, Blush Rose and Desert Teal.
OSTRICH FLUFF LOUNGE CHAIR — NGALA TRADING CO.
Constructed in two sections connected by bronzed steel brackets with solid brass pins, this velvet-upholstered lounge chair features an ostrich feather skirt trim for an added dash of whimsy.
