Ramp up the eleganceIf you don’t want to commit to a large piece of velvet furniture, you could add a couple of smaller elements to your room. Here, the two velvet chairs, in contrasting colours and textures, add elegance to the space. The look is simple but classic.

Go for bold designs with muted tonesThe two yellow elements in this room work to bring the eye around the space. The chair is a “dirty” yellow, which makes it feel calming and slightly traditional. Velvet adds a touch of luxurious glamour and the button-backed style works well with the oversized, decorative mantel. The picture has similarly muted tones but the bold design still attracts the eye.All of the pieces have the same amount of impact, which gives the room a good balance.

Find a fireside spaceBag yourself a prime fireside spot with a smaller sized chair – for one this shape, try searching for ‘cocktail chairs’ online – that can easily be shifted aside when necessary. Luxe fabrics, such as velvet, lend extra softness, while contrasting cushions are easy to swap in and out depending on the season.
