Wednesday Wishlist: 5 Vibrant Velvets For All Occasions!


Love velvets, but think they're not durable enough for upholstery or too pricey for your budget? This week we're giving you the round-up of our top performing velvets - ranging from under £30.00 per metre with several boasting Martindale scores of over 50,000 - we have an amazing range of velvets suitable for both domestic and contract upholstery. 

The Langdale Velvet from GP & J Baker (£79.00 per metre)

Brand new for 2017, this luxurious plain velvet from GP & J Baker is bridging the gap between opulence and practicality. Stain resistant and water repellant, it’s a uniquely durable fabric perfect for curtains and upholstery. We are completely head over heals for this velvet and even more impressed that it’s been launched in the same breath as the new Baker Lifestyle Notebooks Collection, which boasts a contract upholstery grade velvet for only £29.50 per metre. Phew!

Milborne is a high-performance velvet suitable for both contract and domestic upholstery with a Martindale rating of over 50,000. It comes in an impressive range of 30 colourways and can be washed at 30 degrees, making it ideal for use in family homes or for large-scale commercial projects. Coming in at only £29.50 per metre, don’t be fooled by the Milborne’s modest price tag - it’s soft to the touch and drapes beautifully, so can even be used for curtains and blinds.
