One of the hottest trend for 2017 and maybe into 2018 is printed velvet. I know you are thinking to yourself, printed velvet…reminds me of 1990’s or my grandmothers sofa that she was so proud of. That one focal point of the room. Well its back, history always repeat itself, but it is not history its more like a revival with a twist. Painted velvet 2017 is bigger scale patterns, washed out “vintage” and not so 1990’s.

My place of business has this fabric line name GP&J Baker, which carries this amazing printed velvet!! Back in history if you had any type of velvet in your home or in your wardrobe you were either very wealthy or royalty. In today’s world it does not matter if you live in 8000 sq ft home or 463 sq ft velvet makes a room. Even Tom Ford designed a velvet suit for a man, mind I say very well done. I did a post about 2 years ago about velvet. I still to this day would a chesterfield sofa with either a royal blue or emerald green velvet on it.

My best friend her aunt has this amazing yellow 1970’s bucket chair that I am eyeing and if and when I can buy them from her this is what i would re-upholster the chairs in. Something out of the ordinary, I am usually a very tailored simple clean line type of person but when I saw the chairs and then I saw this fabric. It screams please upholstery me in this…I do not have a photo for the chair.

As I said in the beginning of this post that velvet’s in your home you were either wealthy or of royal blood, well this also applied to fashion. If you wore any type of velvet you were from noble blood. In today’s world, everyone is wearing velvet, either as a man’s suit or as under garments. Whatever you sport at home or while you are out and about. Velvet is never going to go out of style. Some runway fashion ( all images from google)

You can always be like the velveteen rabbit.
