Velvet is the season’s slinkiest material, and it looks as luxe as it feels. No matter how you choose to incorporate it, it’s an easy way to add a touch of opulence to any space. From elegant throw pillows to plush wallpapers, here are 23 statement-making ways to incorporate a bit of winter’s hottest trend in your home, and your closet.
Voltes Quilted Coat by Dries Van Noten, Mohawk, $2,448
Calling all maximalists: This is the jacket for you. Dries Van Noten’s signature playfully eccentric style is beautifully translated in this quilted multicolor coat.
Vitti Bag, Staud Clothing, $475
Made from a silk blend velvet for the ultimate luxurious feel, this bag is the perfect finishing touch to any holiday party outfit. Its simple design makes it perfect for day to day usage, too.
May Flowers’ Velvet Cap, Kenzo, $80
Okay, so it might not be the most practical winter accessory, but this cap’s vibrant hue is an easy way to liven up an outfit. Inspired by Kenzo Takada’s 1980s collections (specifically his inaugural 1983 line), the floral print brings a bit of spring to your wardrobe, regardless of the season.
Duo Velvet Circle Sweatshirt by Correll Correll, Need Supply Co., $216
Because if you’re going to wear a sweatshirt, it might as well be a chic one. The deep red hue of this Correll Correll one is perfect for the festive season.
Ombré Velvet Pillow by Kevin O’Brien, ABC Carpet & Home, $310
You could have the most basic couch or bedding in the world, and one of these velvet pillows would instantly up the elegant factor. Mix in with more affordable pillows in other materials for a layered textured look that’s super cozy.
I Like You in Velvet, Mondo Mondo, $135
This might not be technically made of velvet, but the classic scent lends the same sophistication we expect from the fabric. Inspired by silk gloves, jazz, and lipstick, this perfume includes notes of iris, incense, and white musk.
Indra Suit by Rachel Comey, Need Supply Co., $152.99
Dress this bodysuit up with a high-waisted skirt or keep it casual with a pair of vintage Levis to repurpose this gorgeous piece for any type of holiday party.
Velvet Socks, Darner Socks, $40
Velvet socks are a tiny touch of luxury that will make you feel just a little bit more put together. The sunny mustard hue is an easy way to add a pop of color, even if it’s only peeping over the top of your go-to winter boot.
Petrol Mules by Dorateymur, Farfetch, $475
These square-toed fuzzy mules are the colder seasons’ answer to the perennially trendy summer mule. A statement-making metal ring elevates the otherwise simple design of this shoe.
Velvet Cushion with Kingsnake Embroidery, Gucci, $1,250
Gucci does maximalism better than almost anyone else on the market, so when they expanded into homeware earlier this year suffice it to say we were excited. And they didn’t disappoint, offering bold (albeit massively expensive) items such as this red embroidered velvet cushion.
Almaty Velvet, Carolina Irving Textiles
Use this sophisticated print to give an old piece of furniture a fresh look. Or, go smaller with some custom-made pillow covers.
Ladybird, Pierre Frey
Give your space a graphic feel with a punchy print. This geometric-inspired one by Pierre Frey has a distinctly ’70s vibe we’re loving.
Oban Verde Inglese, Dedar Milano
For an elegant vaguely British motif, try this tartan print. The deep blue and green make it a timeless choice, while the velvety material add a unique edge compared to the traditional knit tartan material.
Autun Mohair Velvet, Brunschwig & Fils
If you’ve been looking for an easy way to decorate with Pantone’s Color of the Year, we found it. Purple velvet makes for a fun yet opulent material you can incorporate into your home however you see fit.
Drape Wallpaper by Cole & Son, Mahones Wallpaper Shop
Velvet-inspired wallpaper becomes even more of a statement-making decision when it’s in this dramatic hue. Black walls instantly add a level of sophistication to a room
Lisboa Fabric in Obsidian, Schumacher
Inspired by Portuguese tilework, the labyrinthine pattern on this velvet fabric is definitely striking.
Pelham Clementine Fabric, Kravet
Sick of yellow? Try another cheery hue, like this vibrant orange, to brighten up your interiors.
Lecco, Pierre Frey
This citrine-colored velvet makes for a cushion cover fabric that looks like it belongs in a historic mansion of some sort. Co-opt that elegance and pick up some of this chic material for yourself.
Lagune Klein, Créations Métaphores
This particular fabric was made using artisanal dyeing methods on Saint Germain velvet, which makes for quite a rich-feeling final product.
Cardiff 3-Piece L-Shaped Sectional, Anthropologie, $8,998+
For a living room piece that’s both impossibly glamorous and ridiculously comfortable, buy this L-shaped sectional in one of the many velvet colorways. We personally love the emerald hue, which contrasts nicely with the brass hardware.
Oval Pouf by Ferm Living, Finnish Design Shop, $798
How pretty is this bordeaux color? A pouf is a great way to add extra seating to your space without taking up too much room.
Madda Armchair, Coming Soon, $3,200
Described as a contemporary take on a classic club chair, this plush piece by designer Michael Felix makes a bold statement.
Micro Coat Hooks, Moustache, $103.55+
Everyone needs coat hangers, and instead of going for the standard plastic ones that don’t do much from a design standpoint, opt for these velvet hooks. They’ll liven up an empty wall while doubling up on storage, making them ideal for small spaces.
