Ii am so glad with this trend: velvet interiors. I see so many beautifully designed spaces where this rich material is being used. Velvet upgrades any piece of furniture to a higher level, thanks to its rich, luxurious look and feel. Velvet has a history that dates back thousands of years. Through the centuries and cultures worldwide, velvet was a highly prized material, often symbolised with wealth, power and royalty.

Thanks to modern manufacturing methods, this once unattainable fabric is now available to us all, as illustrated in this small collection of beautiful interiors.

Iik ben zo blij met deze trend: fluweel in het interieur. Ik zie zoveel prachtige ontwerpen waarin dit rijke materiaal wordt gebruikt. Fluweel tilt ieder meubelstuk naar een hoger niveau, dankzij de rijke en weelderige uitstraling. De geschiedenis van fluweel gaat vele eeuwen terug. Door de eeuwen heen, en binnen verschillende culturen,  was fluweel een kostbaar materiaal. Het stond symbool voor rijkdom, macht en aristocratie. Dankzij moderne fabricage methoden is dit eens zo onbereikbare materiaal nu beschikbaar voor ons allemaal. Dit is terug te zien in deze kleine collectie met schitterende voorbeelden.
