Velvet interior curtains: an ever new classic

Always so scenographic, the velvet interior curtains they always manage to bring a note of elegance to any environment. But besides this feature they have other interesting qualities to be chosen such as textile furniture for almost every room in the house. In particular for the sleeping area and the living room and not just in front of a window.

One of the most popular features of velvet curtains is their ability to obscure completely natural light. Also for this reason they are often chosen as second curtains to accompany others in light and filtering fabrics such as satin, linen or very light cottons. In this way, a textile overlap is created which, in addition to being functional in the management of the brightness, also offers an interesting decorative game.

Another appreciated aspect of velvet curtains is always in its heavy texture: not only are creases not easily created, but this fabric lends itself to creating geometry very precise like those of curtains with guides or even rods.

Not just on the windows

Thanks to strong personality of this fabric, curtains can be an interesting piece of furniture for different situations, not just to darken a window. And also for all its other qualities it becomes one of the favorite fabrics for all applications that see curtains to divide the house

They range from spaces that are isolated thanks to curtains guided by tracks to create separate areas with a simple gesture, from guest rooms to the dining area. In in this case the heaviness of the velvet allows you to create ‘walls’ that do not flutter at the first passage of air.

But the beauty of the fabric becomes an almost necessary condition when you want to cover a large section of Wall, like a bookshelf, a shelving on the wall or even use the curtain as head of the bed.

Velvet curtains beyond the usual

Surely for all the characteristics seen, the velvet curtains lend themselves almost exclusively to living area and to sleeping area, both in their most classic application to the windows of the house, and as a device to create divisions or cover portions of rooms.

But the applications of this fabric with a long tradition show how it is an always current choice and ready to find ever new applications. Even Patricia Urquiola, for example, chose it to create some folding doors. And another indication of the freshness of this textile material is in the choice of colors: if on the one hand there are always very traditional examples such as bottle green and emerald red, there are also examples of pastel tones e neutral tint so current today and suitable for very bright environments.
