This year at MDG, we are particularly excited to see a resurgence of touchable fabrics. Velvet is popping up in interiors everywhere in such beautiful colors that we're wondering why it ever left our homes in the first place. We're seeing velvet in the deeply saturated jewel tones of 2017 as well as dusty rose, burnt orange, and warm grays.
We spend so much of our time with our noses six inches from our computer screens or swiping right on our phones it's no wonder we are aching for something that brings us back to Earth. The return of the classic luxury of velvet is drawing our hands across the backs of sofas as we glide through the living room on the way to a cup of coffee. It's pressing our cheek against a throw pillow as we settle down to read Atonement for the third time. Just like when Scarlett O'Hara waltzed on to the screen in her curtain dress, a velvet piece in a home draws a sigh and catches the eye.
