Currently Coveting...

VELVET!


As I scour pinterest, design publications, and other blogs, I can't help but notice all the velvet furniture pieces I'm seing these days. I'm becoming very envious of them and wondering where such a piece could play a role in my own home. Maybe my living room?

We have tossed around the idea of new living room furniture since ours are caving in. Maybe it's from hubby occupyng them so often, or maybe from my precious Lily dog laying there all day every day! Whatever the reason, we will be investing in quality pieces this go round and the dog will get a furniture eviction notice!

I'm keeping my eyes peeled for velvet sofas and chairs. It's always a possibility. Maybe I need 2 velvet chairs to replace the now sunken in loveseat. Loveseats are pointless anyways. I mean, it's not like you have company over and 2 people try to squeeze on a loveseat. Awkward! I'll get much more use out of 2 chairs, plus the velvet will be nice and soft for everyone's tush!

Here's some velvet pieces I'm adoring.





This is one of my all time favorite office spaces! Love the yellow velvet chair!

An unexpected touch in a kitchen.

Or on a headboard..

Velvet, it's not just for your grandmas's sofa! Although, I would happily take my grandma's velvet sofa.

  1. There's something about velvet that's absolutely sumptuous, isn't there? I'm a huge fan; it's so cozy!

  2. I've been loving velvet lately too. I wanted gray velvet curtains for our master bedroom but didn't find any I really liked. A blue velvet sofa would be wonderful!

  3. Velvet is so warm and inviting in the wintertime! Love the idea of velvet in the kitchen - who would have thought of that? Thanks for sharing!
