I may have once written that blue velvet is a fall luxury, but I lied. Sorry, it's May now and I still can't resist the rich and warm color and texture of it. Dressed in the luxurious material, the Room and Board Quinn Chair ($749) is no exception; I can't keep my eyes off of it. I'm also really loving the combination of the chair's mid-century lines with the velvet, which is more commonly used with Louis-style and Baroque furnishings. Then, consider that my beloved Quinn just looks like a comfortable place to sit and enjoy a delicate few, and maybe you'll understand why my heart is aching for him. Yes, Quinn's a him. I hope my fiancé doesn't mind if I elope with this chair instead . . .
Shak in Style recently blogged about the gorgeous, luxe look of blue velvet, and I absolutely fell in love with the photos she chose, and had to repost them here. I love how rich and warm these colors and textures appear. I've actually owned both a green and a burgundy Victorian velvet sofa, though I would've vastly preferred a deep, rich blue velvet over either of those colors. I especially love this Carter Sofa (inquire at website for price).
