"What is That, Velvet?"

Not sure what surprised me most yesterday morning, running into Governor Deval Patrick on the way to the Boston Design Center, or finding out that Schumacher's Imperial Trellis now comes in velvet!!!

I don't know how this development escaped me... I mean it makes perfect sense.  Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis has long been paired alongside velvet...

But just as the design world started to tire of Kelly Wearstler's "new classic" print, Schumacher found a way to reinvent it...

Excuse the crappy Ipad photo - but I do think the shot captures the rich texture a little bit better than the Schumacher stock photos...

At $316 per yard retail, they're not giving the stuff away!  
What do you think?


  1. At $316/yard I should just pick up a few yards in each colorway, you know just to keep on hand :)

  2. I saw that at my local showroom last week ... and I love it!

  3. Love the velvet, but, woof, that price! (and love the Coming to America reference)
