Many of the luxury fabrics used today were previously mentioned with, and only accessible to, the richest royal families. One of the most sensual fabrics with exclusive appearance is velvet.
Nowadays processed velvet is mostly used for upholstery. Different yarns such as cotton, silk, linen, viscose, FR-polyesters (Trevira CS). Not only for the "happy few", but for every budget there is a group of velours for furniture as well as upholstery fabrics for use in projects.
One reason velvet was so popular with nobility and still appreciated today is due to the rich colours that can be produced. Velvet curtains, made with the pile direction up, give an unmistakable beauty and luster to any interior.
The fabric can be made up in any curtain style, from the classic 2 or 3-pleat to a modern decoration with metal rings and a curtain poll. Even soft blinds like roman shades are possible. The best result, also most durable, is achieved when the velvet curtains are lined.
