Velvet and brass is the combination you need to take your interior to the next level

The contrasting marriage of sumptuous velvet and bright metallics was one that captured attention at Milan Design Week earlier this year. It’s a look that exudes both elegance and whimsy. With examples including London’s iconic Sketch restaurant, the colour palette is not limited to Millennial Pink either. The use of rich royal blues and teals through to dusty rose and mauves creates an synergy between the two materials. To implement the look at home, use bold statement pieces alongside brushed brass lamps, side tables and a smattering of accessories. Browse some of our favourite pieces below.
