Crushed Velvet – Out With the Old, In With the New?

The Crushed Velvet Trend

Crushed Velvet is back!

This is a trend that never tires and often comes back into focus for autumn/winter seasons. It can be seen in the fashion industry and interior design, giving both sectors a luxurious upgrade during these seasons.

Out with the Old, In with the New

Crushed Velvet is known as a timeless material. There are many instances throughout history that show velvet coming and going and yet, it always comes back as a top trend somehow! It is never out with velvet and in with something new…the trend merely changes.

As this material can be used for many different things, and often re-used too, it is great for upcycling in interior design. There is no need to go out and spend money on something new when you can do some DIY yourselves and turn that old leather sofa into a new crushed velvet corner suite.

In the 18th century, velvet was all about the dark and dramatic looks. Although this can still be the case for some people who enjoy darker home interior, plush crushed velvet is now in for home décor. Embracing the plush, lighter colours brings a vintage look to a modern home.

In with the new also applies to crushed velvet in the fashion industry. It is a material that can create a statement piece of clothing. It’s elegant and glamourous look means it is often chosen by designers for their gowns and fashion pieces. At the BAFTAs this year, crushed velvet was in with many of the celebrities, giving them the statement look on the red carpet! Often, darker crushed velvet is used to create rich and elegant look to a piece of clothing, unless you want bold.

That Velvet Feeling...

Velvet, and particularly crushed velvet brings a rich look to any room. It can not only give you a very comfortable sofa to lounge on at home, but it can make you feel like you have a statement piece in your home, giving a stylish look. Those into home décor enjoy the modern looks and this will give you that!

In the industry sectors where you have a waiting room for your clients, a crushed velvet sofa or table lamp can give a modern, vintage look to the waiting room. This gives customers an idea on who you possibly are as a business. If you are a bride waiting to find your dream wedding dress, and you’re waiting in a room with a statement, plush coloured crushed velvet sofa, you have the impression that this bridal shop knows all about classic dresses in a modern world.
