Velvet is Vital for 2019

This year is off to a flying start and as we approach the end of February, it’s a good time to ensure that your interiors are on trend and ready for the rest of the year ahead.

Known for its timeless style and luxurious feel, velvet is a sure way to create a dramatic statement in your home. Velvet channels both retro and modern looks and complement other fabrics effortlessly, making it easy to incorporate within your décor.

The rich texture is perfect if you’re looking to add an edge of luxury to your space. It’s soft to touch, exudes comfort and style whilst also being durable. That's what makes it great for stand out furniture pieces such as our Coniston sofa. Upholstered in bold, wine coloured velvet, the Coniston sofa is a modern take on the Chesterfield design.

For a more minimal look, our Abode Ritz sofa features a clean silhouette with a plush velvet finish.


If you don’t want to completely makeover your home, you can still mix it up with a touch of velvet in the form of our Arighi Bianchi Cherry footstools. The stools are available in four different colours, Mauve, Blue, brown and black, ensuring that they'll fit perfectly into any colour scheme.

Here at Arighi Bianchi, one of our favourites is our Shelly Chair. With its elegant green velvet upholstery, shell style stitching and gold accents it creates a chic and stylish, art-deco look.

Last year saw a huge influx in velvet and it's definitely here to stay. Visit our furniture showroom in Macclesfield to take a look at your favourite pieces up close.
