How to style the new velvet: Pinspiration

A flick through the history books would suggest that velvet hasn't always been responsible for good style decisions. Don't write it off though – there's a new wave of furnishings and home decor emerging to revitalise the image of this oh-so-touchable fabric. To celebrate, our buying team have collated the best of the best for a sale event, aptly titled We Love Velvet

Offering close to 100 pieces, this collection is a one stop shop for bedheads, cushions, quilts, throws, seating and more – all with a contemporary spin to keep your style musings fresh-as-a-daisy. Without further ado, we share some Pinterest picks that illustrate how to incorporate the trend at home...

A velvet bedhead makes a grand impression. In a neutral colour, it's the perfect base for styling a luxe look. The soft, textural element will help to create a cozy sleep space, too.

Forget about button tufted Chesterfields, the new velvet lounge is a steamlined specimen with a nod to Scandi and Mid-Century style. Dark mustard and deep ochre shades are a breath of fresh air, yet surprisingly easy to work with.

One of the best ways to play with texture is through contrast. Here, worn linens and silky velvet provide a striking point of difference when framed by rusting metal.

This style of low-level lounge adds a retro spin to velvet upholstery. A salmon-pink colour picks up the warmth of the blonde timber and creates a light, sun-loving ambience.

These colour pairings are inspiring us to re-think our decor scheme, stat. Everyone knows that cushions are a lazy decorator's best friend, but they're also a cost-effective way to bring a little velvet into your home.

The mono-tonal approach gives these relatively classic pieces a modern spin. Layering velvet on velvet creates an inviting space, perfect for cozying up with a good book and a glass of red.

The outdoors might not be an obvious choice when thinking about velvet – but here – it works. Like a soft cable knit throw, the addition of a few velvet scatter cushions can help you to bring the coziness of the indoors out.

Bright, playful, personality-filled, and orange. That sums up this look pretty well. Whilst not for everyone, this velvet lounge looks as though it was made for this space, creating harmony between past and present.

Have you added a velvet headboard to your shopping basket yet? We're running out of reasons not to. Layered up with textural softs and paired with trending brass elements, this stylish set up creates a gorgeous sanctuary.

Emerald green may have had a moment in 2015, but now the focus has shifted onto mossy shades. Paired with dark teal, tropical prints and an abundance of plant life, it's hard not to like the look that forms around this velvet lounge.
