She wore blue velvet – I’m talking about a couch.
Did you also notice that velvet has been flooding social media in the past few months? It’s literally everywhere, regardless if it is fashion or interior design.
I can’t help but think of my aunt’s crooked sofa. Every time I visit her, I spend a good 15 minutes doodling stuff by changing the direction of the pile with my finger and leaving an impression on the fabric.
Despite that association (which I guess 90% of people would do), apparently velvet has come back bolder than ever. I particularly love it when used as a single statement piece or to highlight some few decor elements.
