i have my eye on velvet right now for a chair in our living room. this chair is giving me quite the hard time. i have considered handfuls of fabrics in three different colors for it over the past year and just can't commit.
it adds texture and depth and comes in so many rich colors that give life to any piece. used on a pillow or to cover a sofa or on pumpkins :)...you can't go wrong.
velvet might just be the perfect option. it is such a lush and inviting fabric that gives off a feeling of subtle elegance.
