My former mother in law had an exquisite loose cushioned velvet sofa in this color. I grieved when I learned that my ex had given it to the Salvation Army after her death. He disliked it because it was a low sofa and uncomfortable for him. Complimentary colors in her room were mostly shades of tan and yellow in linen weaves and a small open-armed loveseat in pale yellow brocade. One wall was panelled in wormy chestnut with bookshelves and the fireplace. The rest of the room's walls were a creamy natural linen to pale yellow color. Draperies virtually the same, maybe a couple of shades darker. Her decorator, who passed away many years ago, was great. Her own house was a feast to the decorator's eye. One thing she did that kept folks talking for a while was carpet a stairway with an oriental runner nap down. In other words, she used the rug upside down. She collected figas and glass candlesticks and we adored her. Who would have thought a tour through velvet fabrics would have brought her memory back so strongly today? "I am a part of all that I have met" and she influenced me to break the mold or at least test the limits.
Add: I realized when I cleaned off my desk last night and found the note, I didn't offer the identification of the swatch above. It is called Cannes Swirl Mushroom Velvet and is listed at $12.85 per yard. I want it on something.
