Velvet: the characteristics that make it appreciated
Following the velvet trend is not just a stylistic quirk; this type of furniture cover (and not only), in fact, has several architectural and design features that, in a well-conceived project, can make the difference between an improvised environment and a truly classy one.
Originating in the East centuries ago, between Central Asia, Iran and Iraq, it spread to Europe thanks to the commercial traffic of medieval merchants. Right from the start, Italy became an important production hub, with cities such as Venice, Lucca and Palermo competing for the monopoly of the product and the knowledge that helped them produce it. From the Renaissance onwards, every drawing room, court and palace displayed interiors, clothes and objects made or lined in precious velvet, combined with precious metals or exotic woods.
Starting from modernity, industrial processing and the creation and discovery of alternative basic fabrics to wool and silk made it more affordable for everyone, but no less coveted; passing through the refined designs of the mid-twentieth century, even today this fabric is synonymous with elegance, glamour and sophistication, both in dressing and furnishing. There are in fact three characteristics that are most appreciated:
- the iridescent nature of the colour, which adapts to the play of light according to the angle of perspective;
- pleasantness and softness to the touch, which make it extremely comfortable on velvet sofas and armchairs;
- the versatility of use, which makes it perfect for glamorous furnishings but equally suitable for other solutions (both in combination and in contrast).
What are the best Velvet Sofas, Chairs and Armchairs?
The warm and soft effect of the velvety fabric that caresses the skin, combined with the comfortable and soft seat of the Calicis armchair screams design and elegance from every angle. Its cosy shape, which, like a chalice decorated with sinuous upholstered petals, imposes itself in the room, is just one of the thousand and one reasons to want it in any classy interior design project.
Fluffy Modus Sofà
A spacious sofa bed, soft and with a slightly distant taste, which recalls the classic designs of the past and the love for the most pleasant fabrics to the touch; Fluffy by Modus Sofà is the ideal choice for all those who want to complete the furnishing of their living room with an elegant, versatile and always tidy relaxation point. The most surprising feature? The magic price proposed by ProduceShop.
A good stool, whether for the home or for a bar, doesn’t have to be spartan, or made of bare wood or metal; sometimes an elegant solution, soft to the touch and soft in its lines, can be the most advantageous option in terms of comfort and image. So why not choose stools inspired by velvet armchairs like the Nox by Superstool? Adjustable, swivel, with footrests, to reach the highest possible heights of comfort.
The softness of the velvety fabric is enhanced in this chair by the delicate pastel shades you can choose from; Patogu by the brand AHD is an upholstered chair, comfortable and dedicated to those spaces where harmony and measure are the focus of the furnishing project. The velvety upholstery makes it perfect for bright environments, offering iridescent and lively shadow effects.
Caullae Modus Sofà
One of the brand’s top sellers, the Caullae by Modus Sofà is the classic velvet sofa that brings that touch of old school class to any room it is in, with brilliant discretion and regularity of size. Soft and padded, the capitonnée cover immediately transforms it into a furnishing accessory straight out of the 1960s, with simple, functional lines and a range of colours that are each more beautiful than the last.
Continuing the range of homeware with a vintage feel, a velvet-covered stool like the Holoserica by AHD is perhaps among the most curious and original pieces. A delicate yet decisive seat, which in a stark contrast between shiny golden legs and a soft cover in intense and elegant colours, creates an effective contrast that immediately harmonises any environment and ensemble it decorates.
If you are looking for the comfort and serenity of a good night’s sleep, a velvet-effect rocking chair is the ideal choice. And if you choose a model like our Rocking, the certainty of relaxation on a classy, high-quality and attractively priced accessory is practically discounted! The eiffel structure finally gives that extra touch to the soft cover and the natural wood base, offering a chair that is perfect in every detail.
Even a finely-designed dining room deserves to have seating to match; by opting for a velvet chair like the Bert by AHD, you won’t have the problem of choosing the right complement. Based on a simple and minimalist design idea, it combines the beauty of the velvet cover with the elegance of the golden legs, on which a soft upholstery covered in fabric offers an iridescent and hypnotic play of light and colour.
Ametista Modus Sofà
Elegance is not always synonymous with complexity; if we take the Ametista sofa bed as a practical example, with its soft padding and velvet-effect microfibre covering, we can begin to discover a world of essential furnishing accessories, minimal but at the same time refined and of great visual impact. The deep black of the fabric makes it the focal point of every room it furnishes, highlighting its versatility and the comfort that shines through in every corner.
An elegant pouf or a classy stool? Both, of course! The Rossetto, a small and iconic model from AHD, packs a number of functions into a minimalist design that is simple, striking and with a very clear reference to vintage furniture models, if not original 60s style pieces. A gilded metal ring supports the soft cushions, designing a cylinder of comfort and refined beauty.
Lucrezia Le Roi du Relax
Here we find ourselves in the presence of the nonplus-ultra in terms of comfort: a velvet relaxation armchair, with footrest and reclining backrest, as soft and welcoming as our Lucrezia, is hard to find at a better price than that offered by ProduceShop. In the relaxation chair segment, in fact, one factor that has a great influence on the correct and best use of the chair is the fabric of the upholstery. Well, if you opt for a velvet model, you can be sure you’ll have nothing to complain about!
As soft and cosy as a hug, Modelis is just what you need for your relaxing moments at the end of the day: designed by AHD, it combines comfort and elegance to perfection, with the soft lines of the velvet seat combined with the simple shapes of the structure and the upholstery with a fresh and modern design. Perfect for adding a touch of style to your living area, bedroom or any other room in the house.
