It is classic and luxurious. Velvet is re-emerging as a popular selection for upholstery, bedding, accent pillows, and draperies. Has it ever gone out of style? I think not. For centuries, royalty could only afford the fabric and it wasn’t until the industrial revolution that the common folk could afford this glamorous and durable fabric. Cut, pile, tufted, silk or cotton, how do you like your velvet? Be inspired.
Hirshfield’s Design Studio is a great resource for velvets and they also offer a fabricated headboard program. Stop in and see the samples on display in the showroom.
If you’re interested, here is a link from Kravet Fabric on how the different variations of velvet are made.
