Velvet is a strong and popular fabric as we move into 2021, and is now more practical than ever, often featuring easy-clean technology.Color-wise, we’re increasingly looking to nature to inform the narrative, leaning towards inky blues and moss green, while there’s also a return of earthy tones, like beige and rust. When homeowners want to go bold, hues are still warm and inviting, echoing nature’s spices like hot paprika and golden turmeric.

When it comes to details and shapes, modern-retro fluting and glamorous curved lines are de rigueur, while at the opposite end of the scale a raw, organic and unrefined aesthetic is also breaking through.
