French Style Crushed Velvet Beds Look Better

Style

It is well known that velvet fabrics sport a unique and unusual softness in both appearance and feel. Historically, velvet has often been associated with nobility due to its high cost of production and its luxurious properties. However, in recent trends, velvet is on its way back from plush designer clothing to our homes, giving traditional furnishings a colourful new spin.

In recent months, velvet with its richness of colour and texture made a bold statement among the fashion conscious people. As a result, the new fad of crushed velvet furniture and upholstery is sweeping the scene with its uniqueness and personality. Consequently, velvet has been embraced as part of an eclectic contemporary look, which is seen from the sudden spike in demand for crushed velvet beds.

Design

The velvet is a woven tufted fabric, with cut threads that are evenly distributed and with a short dense pile, thereby creating a distinctive feel of smoothness. Velvet can also be made from synthetic and natural fibres, but a combination of silk & rayon is the most popular choice. A crushed velvet fabric is treated with heat and pressure to produce a surface that is uneven and crinkled. It is also be produced by way of mechanically twisting the fabric while it is wet. This results in a patterned look that is highly lustrous with the full body.

Crushed velvet is mostly used for making upholstery like drapes, curtains, pillows, seat covers, apparels etc. It is often coated with a backing to provide stability to the fabric to withstand regular wear and tear. Recently, crushed velvet fashion garments and beds are getting very popular. They have a remarkable lustre effect that appeals to the masses and gives a unique look.
