Designers are loving this stylishly practical curtain trend

If one thing’s for sure, it’s that velvet is having a moment. Be it accent furniture pieces or the 1970s revival that’s been bubbling away for some time, this super soft textile is certainly on-trend right now. It’s no surprise then that velvet curtains are making a comeback. Blending style with practicality while also adding a touch of luxury to your windows, there’s a lot to love about this retro design idea. 

Those who remember the 70s or 90s will be the first to tell you that the velvet curtain idea is nothing new, but designers are using them in new ways for a more contemporary look. ‘When people think of velvet curtains they often recall the crushed velvets that were popular at that time, but now velvet is making a more sophisticated comeback,’ says Amy Wilson, interior designer for 247 Curtains. ‘As people are getting braver with patterns we’re also seeing more statement designs, from blousy florals to tropical prints.’
