At Chameleon Design, we have a longstanding love for velvet fabric. It’s one of those comfortingly cozy, textural elements that can be used in design styles ranging from modern, to bohemian, and even minimalistic. This dramatic material is often underused and can be seen as heavy and overwhelming, but when incorporated in the right ways, velvet becomes the grounding focal point of any room. While it looks chic and subtle in a neutral hue, it vividly transforms the vibe when chosen in bold, bright colors like vibrant green, cobalt blue, turquoise, or burnt orange. Some of our models with the most vibrant color schemes incorporate an ottoman, sofa, or accent chair in a crushed velvet fabric, and the elegance it adds to each space is unmatched. If we only want to incorporate a small touch of velvet, we tend to do this in the form of throw pillows, alongside pillows in other materials for a fun mix of textures. It’s a delicate balance, but working with this popular fabric is well worth the effort when you see the luxurious results.
