Velvet Crush

Velvet is all the rage at the moment and the trend for velvet upholstered sofas and beds looks like it’s going to maintain some momentum for a while yet. But the danger is that you invest all your cash in furniture that has to survive long after the fashion has faded, no matter how enduring the trend may seem at the time?
