Tuesday Trend- Velvet


via
Last week I was all about this, but this week I can't stop thinking about velvet.  Nothing says I'm A BFD like velvet.  It's luxurious and timeless and textural, which instantly makes your place look clazzy. 

I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.

Perhaps we will all live to see that day.  But since it's not yet (contact your local congressman), you'll have to enjoy velvet in the privacy of your own home.

Check out some velvety awesomeness after the jump!

Oh and one more note on velvet:
Don't listen to those retail furniture stores that only sell velvet in the winter alongside taxidermy and pine cones- F them.  Velvet works year-round because it is awesome.  Good design is never seasonal- who the hell has the money to change their furniture 4 times a year?  And in case you haven't made the obvious mental connection I'll take this statement a step further: a cylander vase filled with sea shells that sell for $3.99 each are, therefore, not good design.  You're welcome.

Let's buy it.

You're supposed to sit on velvet furniture when you're naked, right?

Naked, draped in more velvet... whatever floats your boat!
