One of the fabrics very much in Vogue currently is velvet. And despite years of having a love-hate relationship with the fabric, I now adore it. If you ask me, it's glamourous, yet very contemporary. A great way to start out is with pillows or even a pouf like this one. But be warned, you won't be able to get enough. I'm currently lusting for both a couch and dining room chairs in velvet. The pouf is from Normann Copenhagen and comes in a variety of colors (and two different sizes).
