When I spotted this picture of director Laurent Tirard at the International Rome Film Festival, my eyes immediately wandered to the gorgeous tufted velvet cubes to the director's right. They look so luxe that I immediately wanted to add one to my own home.
Tufted velvet combines two sumptuous decorating ideas: that of tufting, which is achieved when upholsterers thread through layers of fabric and secure the ends of the thread with a knot or button, and velvet, which is one of the richest fabrics used throughout history.
Tufted velvet is all over the decorating world, and I'm particularly smitten with this Scandinavian chaise ($7,995). This gorgeous mid-century piece features a tufted purple velvet cushion suspended on a rosewood frame. While I could never splurge on this piece, a girl can dream, right?
