Can you mix velvet and linen furniture? Yes, you can mix velvet and linen furniture to create a balanced and visually appealing interior. Here’s how to do it effectively!

The key is to balance the rich, plush texture of velvet with the light and airy feel of linen. For example, if you have a velvet sofa, consider adding linen throw pillows or curtains to introduce the linen texture without overwhelming the space.

Ensure that the colors of your velvet and linen furniture pieces complement each other. You can choose a color palette that ties them together, such as soft pastels, earthy tones, or neutral shades. This will create a cohesive look.

Pay attention to the proportion of each fabric in the room. It’s generally a good idea to have one dominant fabric (e.g., velvet) and use the other (e.g., linen) as an accent. For instance, if you have a velvet sofa, you can add linen-covered accent chairs or ottomans.

2. Side Chair

What fabric goes with velvet furniture? When coordinating fabrics with velvet furniture, it’s essential to strike a balance between texture and color to create a harmonious and inviting living space. Velvet has a luxurious and rich texture, so you can complement it with fabrics that offer contrast.
