Velvets - Spoilt for Choice.

One of the greatest lessons from my recent visit to several of D&F's European suppliers was that Velvets rule the world! When it comes to the D&F collection, you are absolutely spoilt for choice.

Our Belgravia sofa looks a picture in Jazz velvet by Decortex Firenze.  The cushions in Lewis & Wood's Joseph and Schumacher's Gainsborough add more spice to this setting.



Rooksmoor velvet by Lewis & Wood - A rainbow collection of 16 sumptuous 100 per cent Cotton Velvets, these rich velvets work cleverly with the Lewis & Wood portfolio. The extensive collection ranges from a hot, deep orange Marmalade to a sublime turquoise blue we have called Marmara. There is something here for everyone and the lush velvet pile is a joy to touch.



Joseph velvet by Lewis & Wood - The fashionable Velvet revival sees one of its most dynamic and stunning interpretations with a striking and arresting floral design which comes in a rich and tawny brown and a hot and colourful blue toned colourway. Perfect for creating what we like to call 'heirloom upholstery' this is a delicious statement fabric which is guaranteed to both lift the spirits and throw instant colour and texture into a room.



Habana by Gaston Y Daniela - A 50:50 blend of cotton and viscose, Habana velvet is Gaston Y Daniela's top selling fabric world wide.  It offers a broad colour palette blending more neutral tones with bolder pigments typifying Gaston's characteristic flair.



Saint Yago by Gaston Y Daniella - A striking geometric with plush viscose and cotton pile on a polyester backing.  Saint Yago is suited to drapery or upholserty in Amerillo, Azul, Verde, Rojo and Chocolate colourways.



Shock Wave by Schumacher - A luxurious silk velvet woven with an ombr√© chevron, Shock Wave is crafted in Italy at one of the finest silk mills in the world. The process is so painstaking that the looms produce just 8 meters of fabric a day. You can feel and see that effort in the supple hand of the fabric and in the way the raised velvet shimmers against its matte cotton ground.



Gainsborough by Schumacher - Since Schumacher was founded in 1889, this family-owned company has been synonymous with style, taste and innovation. Our collections are comprehensive, with an extraordinary range united by a respect for classicism, an eye for the cutting edge, and an unparalleled level of quality. A passion for luxury and an unwavering commitment to beauty are woven into everything they do.  Gainsborough velvet is no exception.
