How to tie the elegant and timeless, luxurious feeling to your interiors so that you can uplift and energise your life? This guide will show you which elements we use to achieve a classy and refined home look.
Now, think about that last time that you stopped for a second in your living room, you looked around and you felt inside that something was missing, a spark that could bring you a lot of joy.
Probably one of the oldest words in the world, luxury is a concept different to each one of us.
For some, luxury means having high-end furniture pieces, for others, it's all bout the feeling.
Whatever your concept of luxury is, here are five tips so you can get the much-desired indulgent feel in your home.
Tip #1 - Look Out for Velvet

Velvet has a history that dates back a thousand years, through the centuries and cultures worldwide, velvet was a highly prized material, often symbolized with wealth, power and royalty.
Thanks to the modern manufacturing method, this fabric is available to everyone.
It’s the look of the material itself that feels luxurious, glamorous and at the same time efficient that has influenced the manufacturers and forecasters to bring it back on the market; for example, curtains made with either plain or embossed velvet perform better than other materials when it comes to blocking out daylight thanks to the thickness of the material.
Velvet has been one of the big news of Fall 2019 but there are no signs yet of slowing down soon.
Tip #2 - Sumptuous Leather
Leather is one of the most durable and good-looking surfaces for home furnishings, the ageing process allows the material to turn better with time, but like all good things, it comes with the responsibility of maintaining it with the age, a proper leather conditioner helps clean spots and stains from the surface.
Leather is available in different shades of colours, from orange hues to classic black, ivory and browns.
What makes it luxurious, then, is its durability and it’s without a doubt one of the easiest materials to clean, making it a great choice for all upholstery applications.
“Luxury is when it seems flawless, when you reach the right balance between all elements. Understated theatricality – that is what my luxury is all about". Jean-Louis Denoit
