Is it this year’s royal wedding that set this trend into motion? Whatever the cause, designers are welcoming velvet back into the home, popping up on pillows, drapery, rugs, and even comforters. The resurgence of velvet is here just in time for the holidays, lending a plush elegance to the modern home. Designers are implementing it in a variety of ways from accent pillows to furnishings. The velvets of today are versatile, soft and sophisticated. For starters, embellishments are the way to go, such as with accent trays, throw pillows, and subtle textiles. The bold can utilize this fabric to reupholster just about anything from dining chairs to sofas.
