As we get more adventurous with our homes, it seems no matter what your style is, you can still incorporate Velvet Furniture into your interior scheme. Take a look at these 3 very different interior trends for 2019, and learn how to use velvet furniture in your home.

Art Deco Teal & Blush Pink

Pair Blush Pink and Teal Velvet with Brass Accents for an Art Deco-inspired home.

Velvet furniture lends itself so well to Art Deco styling, especially when paired with brass as velvet is naturally quite an opulent material. The colour combination of Teal and Blush Pink is bang on trend for 2019, while also creating a cosy, inviting and warm home.

Peacock Velvet Amalfi Bed, Casa Brass Table Lamps, Blush Pink Plaza Stool

The Peacock Velvet Amalfi Storage Bed brings the modern feel, while the Casa Brass Table Lamps and Blush Pink Plaza Stool add the Art Deco vibe. If you're feeling a bit more playful, opt for some colour palm prints and lots of house plants for a nod to 1950's Miami vibes.

@kingkieronspalace

Our super cool customer @kingkieronspalace is nailing the Art Deco Teal & Blush Trend by pairing the Teal and Blush Form Dining Armchairs with a vintage marble table. The brass accents on the table and wall tie the whole look together, bring an Art Deco touch to a modern new build.

Mia and Blush Mellow Dining Set

You can always tone down the look, and choose either Teal or Blush to create an art deco home, or substitute the teal more a darker navy blue. As long as you stick to the brass highlights and introduce a geometric touch, you'll be working the Art Deco trend all over!

Modern Marble & Monochrome

Grey continues to dominate the pages of your favourite interior magazines, although we are seeing a shift towards warmer greys for 2020. Grey Velvet is a gorgeous material and can be worked in all manner of styles. However, one we are particularly fond of is the combination of grey velvet and marble.

Pair Marble, Stainless Steel and Grey Velvet for a slick and modern luxe.

Due to the calming properties of a white and grey, minimal colour palette, this is the perfect combination for use in your bedroom. The simple colour palette promotes relaxation while the mixture of soft velvet with hard marble creates a very luxe look.

The Turin Velvet Bed in Feather Grey

This luxe material combo also works amazingly well for kitchens, as marble worktops are a sought after addition. Real Marble or a Marble effect, you can easily bring this opulent look to your home regardless of your budget!

If you want the look of marble, without the high maintenance, take a look at our new Mia Dining Table, with a ceramic top finished with a stunning marble veining.

Mia Marble and Form Velvet Dining Set

Pair this with the chic Form Velvet Dining Chairs and Armchairs to create a modern marble and velvet interior. Choose brushed steel for an extra contemporary touch and to bring another element of texture.

Oppulent Jewel Tones

Our final look is a warm, opulent and super stylish look combining rich, jewel tone velvets. Sick to similar shades such a fern green, teal and sapphire blue, and mix and match to create a visually exciting, inviting space.

Blue, Teal and Green Velvet combine to make a warm, inviting home.

As green, blue and teal are neighbouring colours on the colour wheel, they make for a harmonious colour scheme. Playing with the levels of each colour can create different feels.

For example, if you choose a dark teal wall with a dark blue sofa with fern green cushions, you will make a much more moody space than if you paired blue chairs with a blue kitchen and light grey walls.

The Nala Dining Table and Clover Fern Velvet Dining Set

This dark blue kitchen really lends itself to moody furniture. The combination of dark wood from the Nala table and soft Fern Green Velvet of the Clover chairs bring a subtle mid-century vibe, while really creating an inviting space.

The Peacock Amalfi Bed from @appleton2plus_morrishomes

The Amalfi bed in peacock velvet works well against this dark blue wall as styled by our customer @appleton2plus_morrishomes. Pair with a touch of warm wood and brass accents for a mid-century vibe.

Pair Fern Green Velvet with Walnut and Black for a modern, chic look.

Create a balanced and well-decorated home by bringing this green velvet and wood style throughout the rest of your space. Pair the Clover Dining Chairs with the new Mia Brass and Walnut Dining Table for a chic, mid-century home with all the style points.

How to Mix and Match Your Dining Room Furniture: The Mismatched Look
April 21, 2016 at 4:20 pm 0
Mix and match dining setting At a first glance mix and match furniture may look like a totally random selection. However, it’s actually a much more considered design set up than just throwing any old pieces together. After all, you don’t want your dining space looking like your old student digs or your first flat, where non-matching furniture was more of a necessity than a lifestyle choice! When done correctly, mixing your dining chairs is a great way to create a unique look in your dining area. We’ve put together our own definitive guide to offer you style tips for pulling off a mix and match dining set. We also have tons of dining room decorating ideas, so you'll be creating this very on-trend mix and match look in no time!  

Same Colour Dining Chair, Different Design:

By keeping the colour of your dining chairs the same, you are able to keep the coordination. You're also able to have some fun with the shape, style and size of the chairs you choose.  

Mix and Match Same Design Dining Chair, Different Colour:

One of the easiest mixed dining chairs design ideas is having the same shape and style of dining chair but in a variety of complementary colours. This is because there is still consistency from the design of the chairs, but you can really get creative with which colour combinations you choose. Opt for two tones or a neutral palette for a more subtle take on this look.
Mix and match dining set: Arc Oak and White Gloss and Senn Colourful Dining Set Danetti

Mixing bold chair colours against tactile wooden and gloss surfaces is a fun take on the mix and match look. Not to mention the gorgeous look of the close up and detailing.

 

Same Material Dining Chair, Different Design:

This look is ideal if you have a particular material choice in mind but still want mix things up. The key to pulling off this mismatched dining setting is to stick with just one material finish but in different chair styles. We’ve opted for real leather but you can choose any material that best suits your space. It’s a good idea to stick to one colour when opting for this mismatched look. This is so that there aren't too many points of difference. All of our leather chairs come in the same palette creating plenty of potential to coordinate different designs of chair.   

Play With The Height Of Chairs and Bar Stools:

Okay, so a bar stool isn’t technically a dining chair but we had to include this mix and match dining setting. Having different heights in your dining space, such as bar stools at a breakfast bar, will help to create a nice visual balance in the space. We’ve kept elements the same such as the wire leg frame of both the Eames chairs and of the Anzio bar stools, as it is a contemporary coordinating feature that helps to tie the whole look together. If you want to have an even more coordinated look throughout your space, you might want to consider something like an Eames Style Bar Stool, as they have similar styling on the base and the seat mirrors the continuous curve of the Eames chair.

You can also mix the colours of the bar stool seats, like we've styled here with the Anzio Modern Gas Lift Bar Stools in mulberry purple, white and black £132

Mixing The Traditional With Modern:

When mixing traditional with modern pieces, less really is more. Try not to have too many different styles of chair as this can make the space look jumbled rather than styled. We’ve selected a seat similar to the Eames Dining Armchair, called the Finn Dining Armchair, as its iconic design means it will always look on trend and up to date. To add a traditional spin, we’ve chosen the tactile oak frame finish of the Scandi style Senn Oak and White Dining Chair, which also helps to add a touch a warmth. The white finish of both of the seats helps to tie the whole look together. When selecting a table for this look, we’d suggest something with glass and chrome accents, like the Tiva Small Glass Dining Table or Naro Round Glass 4 Seater Table. The transparency of the glass would let the chairs be the ‘star of the show’ while the chrome accents would give the set a truly modern edge. If you’re really inspired by this timeless look, we definitely recommend taking a look at our “How to Add a Modern Edge to a Traditional Home” blog post (after you’ve finished reading this one of course), which offers an array of style inspiration for creating this look throughout your home.    

Different Details:

Mix and match furniture can create a very impactful setting. However, there are ways around this if you’d like to have a more subtle take on this statement look but still with some level of variation. Changing just one element or detail of your chair selection keeps the coordination but breaks up the palette for a mini mixed look.

Tactile Textures:

When mixing textures, we suggest keeping the shape and style of your dining chairs as similar as you can. This is so all the style impact from this look comes from your choice of mixed of materials. Whether it’s wood with chrome or fabric and faux leather, like we’ve opted for with our Riva and Tori chairs, having a mix of textures in your dining area will create a tactile and very contemporary vibe, with the added benefit of getting to have such a range of gorgeous material finishes in your home! Both of our Tori and Riva chairs are stackable seats, so they are great space savers. This makes the chairs ideal for storing away and then getting out again when you have guests round for dinner.    

Same Style Dining Chair Different Design:

This dining room design is another subtle take on the mix and match look. By keeping the style the same but having a slightly different design of chair, you are able to mix things up just enough so there is a stylish visual impact, without the look becoming too overpowering in your dining space. A great way to do this is to place dining armchairs at the each end of the table. This not only mixes things up a bit, but it creates a really neat and uniform modern dining room. There's also two extra comfy seats at the end of the table for your favourite people. This style of chair is definitely something to consider if you want to comfortably sit around your table chatting, long after the dinner plates have been cleared away!
