Incorporating textures

rich texturesIncorporating rich textures such as velvets and silks will add an inviting elegant touch to interior spaces.  Currently there is an incredible variety of fabrics in the market and endless color selections to choose from but velvet is still one of the most widely used fabrics due to its elegance.  There are many types of velvets including plain, crushed, panne, and cut, and its durability and malleability make it suitable for upholstery, drapery and accent elements.  Cut velvet tends to be used for drapery and crushed is thicker and more resistent and used more for upholstery.  Panne velvet is softer than the crushed velvet and also used for upholstery.  Plain velvet tends to have richer colors and is often used for accent elements such as pillows.
