Hope your week is going nicely?
Do you have a velvet chair in your decor? I actually don't,
but I do have a chanille chair in the family room that is my favorite chair to curl up in.
Incorporating a avelvet chair into your space, adds that amazing
element of chicness....read on to learn how to bring this power piece into your rooms....
Once associated exclusively with nobility, rich, stately velvet is coveted for its beautiful softness, sumptuous look, and its ability to shimmer with color like no other weave of fabric. Like George Costanza before us (the “Seinfeld” character who wanted to be draped in velvet 24/7 if only it was “socially acceptable”), we all secretly want more velvet in our lives. Enter the accent chair. A piece that adds a jolt of chic to almost any room, an accent chair upholstered in velvet is a two-for-one style score. Read on to learn how to bring this power piece into your rooms.
Velvet a la Mode

Does the room you’re going to bestow with a velvet chair have a clearly defined style? Accent chairs are available in many different looks, from Mid-Century Modern to Shabby Chic to Hollywood Regency. If you’d like to keep the feel consistent, choose a chair that aligns with the room’s style. If a more eclectic look is your preference, consider a Louis XIV style showstopper to add a touch of humor to a stark, modern room, or a clean-lined Roche Bobois style lounger to keep a bohemian-style room from becoming too over-the-top.

Do you want the velvet accent chair to stand out or blend in? Velvet has the potential to be showstopping or soothing. A jewel-toned or paisley patterned chair will instantly draw the eye, while a more neutral or darker option will be sleek and quietly touchable.

While it’s always tempting to put a real head-turner right in the middle of the room, consider the effect of layering a bold chair behind a well-styled coffee table or next to a console against the wall. A more neutral velvet chair will be at home wherever you place it, from front and center to blending right in.

Now that your chair is placed where you like it, think about what will live around it. Gold or other metallics will pop against lush velvet, for a luxe effect. For a hint of Hollywood Regency, top your chair with an animal print pillow and take a walk on the wild side.
Bring the luxe chair into your living space, even if it's tucked into a corner......
Happy chair hunting....Until next time, Judy
