Velvet also looks fantastic as part of any living room and bedroom design in the winter. Dressing your chairs and sofas in velvet is one of many great upholstery ideas that will see you through to the other side of February.

Head for Herringbone
If you are interested in kitting out your upholstery in a stylish winter look which will blend well into spring, think about tight herringbone patterns. Herringbone fabric offers a calm, neutral aesthetic that brings a sense of cosiness into any room. After all, much of the warmth we experience in our homes is subconscious! Why not use a fabric that brings together light patterns and colours?
Warm fabrics in a herringbone pattern are gorgeous to look at and are very easy to maintain. You could upholsterer an armchair in the pattern to keep your chair looking comfy and welcoming throughout the winter.
