As the maximalism trend blazes on, velvet upholstery is becoming more popular than ever. We've compiled a list of our favourite botanical velvet fabrics that provide a decadent luxury worthy of the Palace of Versailles.
1. Maroque Lazurite - Black Edition
Intricate layers and elaborate detailing are considerately positioned to create a large scale Moroccan inspired damask, digitally printed on a fine viscose velvet.
2. Erbusco Mopane - Black Edition
The epitome of luxury, this textural velvet features an elegant damask design created to have the appearance of a deep emboss.
3. Herbaria Jacquard Malva - Black Edition
A printed jacquard woven velvet featuring a dramatic floral design broken by glimpses of shimmering metallic ground shown here on the back of our Ava Barstools in The Lost & Found Leeds Club.

4. Lombardo Vermillion - Romo
A sumptuous soft velvet featuring a unique painterly design, cleverly created through layers of colour and pattern to convey an aged appearance, where layers of historic artistry are peeled back to reveal a hidden damask. Note: Please be aware this fabric has a Martindale rub count of 30,000; we recommend a minimum of 40,000 for contract use, so this fabric would be better suited to cushions and soft furnishings in a hospitality environment.
5. Royal Garden Velvet - Sapphire - G P & J Baker
GP & J Baker’s collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces, including The Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace and Kensington Palace, has provided a wealth of inspiration for this special collection. Elements of their spectacular architecture, gardens and interiors have been assembled to create dazzling designs in ‘Royal Gardens’, ‘Royal Weaves’ and ‘King’s Velvet’. In this sample butterflies flit between beautiful blooms.
6. Pleasure Gardens Velvet - Black Edition by Romo
Contemporary impressionist painter Jessica Zoob creates bright new worlds rich in imagination yet gently infused by emotion. Working in collaboration with Romo Black Edition she has created the 'Desire' collection and her emotionally charged paintings have translated beautifully onto fabrics, wallcoverings and cushions. This joyous collection includes intricately printed fine linens, striking panels, exquisite velvets, dramatic wallcoverings and divine cushions.
7. Mustique in green/grey - Panaz
Part of the Boho Chic collection, the Mustique range from Panaz is a soft velvet that evokes botanical collage. Shown here on the back of our Camelia Armchair with Emerald Allure velvet on the seat front and pad, the two working together to create a lusciously unique chair. We have a sample available in our showroom. Get in touch to enquire about loan availability.
8. Queen's Garden Velvet - Jade - GP & J Baker
A less busy, but nonetheless regally extravagant, variation of the Historic Royal Palaces collection features delicate white flowers on a rich jade background.
