Velvet Upgrade: Get in on the Trend Taking the Home Design World by Storm

From quilts to curtains to couches to headboards, any home decor swathed in velvet is hard to resist.

Velvet has suddenly taken over the home goods world, and count us totally OK with that. There’s no corner of the market that hasn’t been covered in this luxe and sumptuous fabric, which is ideal since no other fabric provides such smooth tactile bliss or a sink-in and stay there feeling that's hard to resist, especially in winter months. With the temperature dipping ever lower, this is one trend that came just at the right time. 

Today’s velvets come in a colorful array of hues and textures, from slub to crushed to plush. Best of all, you don't need to spend a lot of money to give your space a velvety upgrade: Ease in with some accent pillows, a throw, or curtains. Of course, if you decide it’s time to swap out all of your furniture for velvet varieties, you'll have a host of things to choose from. Some retailers (Anthropologie and Joybird) will even let you customize your furniture in the velvet of your choice. Think a statement-making chartreuse armchair paired with an emerald green sofa and you get the picture. 

We picked out a few favorite items that provide a good starting point.
