Last week, as part of National Bed Month, we brought you our Top 10 Leather Beds. Today we turn the spotlight on a few of our favourite Luxury Velvet Beds. Silk velvet. Cotton velvet. Crushed velvet. A true, woven velvet (as opposed to a cheaper, knit velour) will always add a feeling of glamour and opulence to any bedroom. Whether it’s a magnificent master suite, a gorgeous guest room or maybe a teenager’s sanctuary, a velvet bed sets the tone. If you’re not sure what we mean, take a look at our selection of luxurious velvet beds below.
We’re starting off with one of our more understated velvet beds – perfect for a luxury guest bedroom, we think. The lines are smooth and simple but the luxe factor is taken up several notches with the use of a fine, ivory velvet. If you’re looking for luxury without the fuss, this quietly confident velvet bed could be the one.
This fabulous velvet bed is all about the detail. Soft velvet is combined with intricately interlaced satin – in any combination of colours you like. As with the majority of our luxury furniture, you can specify or even supply your own fabrics if you prefer. The black, high gloss lacquer base adds an extra layer of luxury. A true master suite statement.
Here we take the interlacing a stage further. This magnificent woven velvet and brass headboard is central to the overall design, adding an extra layer of texture and finesse. Every element is expertly hand crafted with an exceptional attention to detail.
We love the gentle glamour and simplicity of this velvet bed with its soft curves and warm, welcoming taupe upholstery. Check out the beautiful, unusual curve of the base. When the design is so simple, there is nowhere to hide – every stitch has to be perfect. And it is.
The on-trend, ultra-wide headboard of this amazing bed combines smooth velvet with soft, quilted leather. How much more luxurious could it be? The wide headboard ties together bed, bedside tables and lamps into one cohesive design element. And it makes a magnificent statement as part of a master bedroom suite. The tapered, quilted inserts can also be created in stunning metallics such as copper, brass or chrome.
Luxury Italian Button Upholstered Velvet Bed
Take the traditional deep buttoning of a Chesterfield and combine it with a contemporary, low design and what do you get? This Luxury Italian Button Upholstered Velvet Bed, obviously. Here, the exquisite lilac velvet adds a little lift of colour but it is available in a whole range of colours and fabrics to suit any interior. Every button is expertly stitched by hand to create a thing of perfection.
Exclusive Italian Purple Crushed Velvet Upholstered Bed
Let’s really lift the colour with this imposing, purple crushed velvet bed. Another contemporary, low design but this time with a spectacular, tall headboard. A crushed velvet is made, as the name suggests, by crushing the fabric while it is wet or by pressing the pile in different directions. It produces a finished fabric with a fabulous texture, one that gently bounces light around a room. We can see this bed in a teenager’s den, featuring heavily in social selfies, no doubt.
Luxurious Velvet Button Upholstered Italian Designer Bed
Here we have the same low base but the fabulous curves of a very grown up headboard. Every detail is immaculate, from the hand-stitched piping to the silver leaf feet. Instead of buttons, why not add even more glamour with sparkling, Swarovski crystals? And if red is not for you, that’s not a problem. We can send you a library of luscious fabric samples to choose from. Or you can tell us exactly what you want and we will create your own bespoke velvet bed.
Designer Italian High End Luxury Round Bed
When it comes to a real statement velvet bed, they don’t come much more flamboyant than this. Obviously, a round bed is not for everyone but if you are looking for something a bit different, and truly breathtaking, add this one to your shortlist. A white velvet bed has to be the ultimate in opulence – and not something we can all carry off, making it all the more exclusive.
Rococo Style Designer Italian Button Upholstered Velvet Bed
If your tastes are more classical and a little less extravagant, we have a whole range of French, baroque and rococo style beds on the website. Selecting just one was very difficult. You may prefer something more ornate than this, in which case, please feel free to explore all our luxury beds for more inspiration. Our Florence and Venetian Collections, in particular, have a superb choice of ornate, classic beds. We’ve chosen this one not just for its impeccable, buttoned velvet headboard but also the gorgeous, hand-painted floral detail with accents of gold. Whether you’re in a luxury London apartment or a chic château, a beautiful, classic velvet bed such as this adds both style and finesse.
