Scandi Living

With winter fast approaching, it’s time to switch our attention from exterior to interior living.

Here at Velvet Living, we have been busy monitoring all the latest design trends in order to offer the most contemporary furniture and accessories for events, which means we’ve been scouring the stands and seeking inspiration at events such as Decorex, Focus/16 and The London Design Festival to name a few.

A design trend that shows no sign of going away is the ultra-contemporary Scandinavian look, characterised by its mid-Century influences in terms of form and function and brought to fame by a raft of iconic designers. Simplicity is key and less is more. Shades range from pure whites to creams and greys through to blues and richer tones, with an emphasis on quality, natural fabrics and a strong, unfussy design aesthetic to create a feel of understated luxury throughout.

The Nordic influence is strong in our Autumn Winter collection of furniture, where our classic Oslo in teal blue velvet and sumptuous Stockholm in soft plum can be paired with complementary armchairs such as the Kobenhavn in mulberry or teal blue. Choose compatible shades or play with contrasts by pairing with brighter pieces from our extended collection of modern sofas and chairs to create highlights / accents of tonal colour. Throw in a luxurious sheepskin or colourful Moroccan rug, a modish piece of statement lighting, arrange around our Sofia Marble Table and set off with a piece of mirrored furniture to create a cool, textural look that plays with contrasts and surfaces.

Whatever your preferred look and feel, Velvet Living have a vast range of event furniture hire options, and are on hand to help you at every stage. From styling and trend advice, through to spatial planning and accessorising, the Velvet team will ensure your event looks it’s absolute best.
