3. Velvet Headboards

Why invest in a humdrum headboard when you can have a velvet-upholstered one instead? Whether you opt for a channel tufted model or a simple clean-lined style, a velvet headboard will instantly elevate the ambience of your entire bedroom (and make your bed more comfortable, too).

4. Velvet Drapery

If you thought velvet drapes were reserved for classic interiors then it’s time to think again. Available in contemporary colors such as versatile beige to bold sapphire blue, Barn & Willow’s velvet drapery appears modern but elegant—making them a stylish window treatment choice just about any design aesthetic.

6. Velvet Throw Pillows

Looking for an affordable way to upgrade a sofa, bed, or lounge chair in a pinch? Velvet throw pillows come in a rainbow of shapes and colorways that will quickly revamp a dated piece of furniture without breaking your bank account.
