An industrial-look enthusiast might not find velvet to fit-in with a clean-lines, sleek-modern home décor style. On contrary we claim that velvet may actually add an unexpected coat of balminess without taking away the industrial roots. Needless to mention its rich texture will instead break the strong lines and too many angular shapes in an industrial space.

How to Velvet: Stick to velvets in nonchalant hues, such as slate, graphite, and blue, to maintain the industrial appeal or for a pop of color, add an emerald velvet dining chair.
