Incorporate the luxury velvet seating trend throughout your home

The 70’s luxe trend is back and booming. Velvet furniture is a trend which is showing no signs of slowing down. The soft pile fabric and its sheen are what makes this trend so luxurious and decadent. Elegant and sophisticated, this iconic style is one we’re happy to welcome back especially as we love supplying all things velvet, including furniture, lighting, soft furnishings and of course indulgent velvet seating.

If you’re looking to incorporate this luxury trend into your home and need some ideas on how to do so, well then you’ve come to the right place. Here at CIMC we love putting together fashionable looks to inspire you so sit back, grab a cuppa and be prepared to be amazed by our beautiful offerings.

With winter well underway, velvet is definitely the cosiest material this season. As we start to spend more time indoors during the longer colder evenings, you’ll definitely want to create a cosy living space and velvet seating and accents are the perfect way to achieve this in style. Starting with the biggest piece of furniture in the living room – the sofa. A velvet sofa creates a luxury high-end look in any living room. The dreamy plush material instantly offers a glamorous oomph but also will make the comfiest seat to relax on.

Speaking of relaxing, how about something to rest your feet after a long hard day. Footstools are a brilliant addition to any living or bedroom. With so many styles to choose from including colours, designs and if they offer storage solutions - you’ll truly be spoilt for choice. Some of our favourite footstools are our new velvet sparkle stools. Upholstered in a variety of trending colours and embellished in sparkling diamantes they scream elegant style. They are the ideal height to be used with a sofa or double up as extra seating when entertaining or even in the bedroom as a dressing stool.

 

 

Versatile, durable and hard-wearing, velvet is surprisingly low maintenance which is why it’s a great material for use with furniture that receives heavy-usage such as dining chairs, benches and stools. Our eye-catching velvet dining chairs are a wonderful way of adding a pop of colour to any dining room. Featuring sumptuous curves, bright jewel tones and stud detailing to truly reflect a contemporary style. From dinner tables right through to breakfast bars you can evoke the velvet seating trend in a practical corner of your home. Our velvet stools featuring polished chrome legs will look effortlessly stylish up against any breakfast/ home bar.

 

 

A trend that we’ve seen growing in the past few years is the alternate to dining chairs is the dining bench which we totally love by the way. Offering an array of opulent benches that are part of our premium furniture collections including Apollo, Marrakech and Manhattan they feature luxury velvet topped seats with mirrored bases. The advantage of using benches instead of chairs are that they create a convivial atmosphere, a sense of togetherness when seated so closely. They also really open up a space and won’t obstruct the view of the table whereas dining chairs feature high backs so when they’re not in use they interrupt the flow of a room, especially if it’s a smaller space.

The best part about benches is that they need not be restricted to just the dining room. Deluxe velvet benches are perfect to place at the end of bed or placed under a large bay window to create a wonderful reading spot.

 

 

Whilst velvet may have been the material of choice for only the rich and royalty, it’s now become so popular and in demand that it is being used in practically everything from curtains to cushions and even lamp shades. As well as supplying velvet furniture we also stock beautifully patterned and embellished velvet cushions that will look divine scattered on any sofa or bed. The beauty of their texture is they pair fabulously with a whole host of other materials including linen and cotton therefore if you were only starting to introduce velvet to your home interior décor, then velvet cushions are a great way to start.

 

 

Predicted to be around for many more years to come, the velvet trend is set to be around for a while yet although it may be offered in different colours and styles according to seasonal interior trends. One thing for sure though is that it will always be one of the most elegant, luxurious and sumptuous choices for seating.
