It almost seems like a paradox, but a “non-color” is indeed the favorite color to symbolize elegance and refined style. Let’s explore all our novelty velvets in black and how to use them effectively in interior design.

Black: a Mysterious and Versatile Color

Black is the result of the lack of light or its total absorption, so it is given by the absence of color. As with white, it officially has no hue, but in reality, we can distinguish different shades of black in objects as well as fabrics, such as charcoal black, ebony black, or ink black.

Among the innumerable symbologies associated with this color are those with the origin of life and rebirth in ancient Egypt and with power in the Middle Ages. It is associated with sensuality, mystery, and rebellion. But we love it because, even in interior design, black expresses refinement and elegance, and it can complement either traditional or modern, or unconventional styles. As long as it is not overdone because, as with other dark colors, it can make rooms appear smaller and can be oppressive when used for both walls and furnishings.

Undoubtedly, when dosed appropriately for sofas, armchairs, cushions, or lamps, and combined with style, it creates sophisticated and bold spaces because it is a very versatile color. In fact, being neutral, it goes well with any color. With more vibrant tones such as red, emerald green, and lemon yellow to create more vibrancy; with other neutrals to maintain an understated but not mundane style; and paired with gold for an opulent style.

In addition, it is often used as an accent color, according to a proportion of 60 % for neutrals, 30 % for colors, and 10 % for black details.

Gotico Heddle Velvet

Gotico velvet brings back a 16th-century motif reminiscent of Turkish fabrics of the time, with a dynamic and light structure, stylized flowers, and the long Islamic-inspired halved leaf (rumi). Available in numerous colors, from olive green to antique pink, it is visually striking in the new variant, thanks to the sheen of the black silk contrasting with the yellow-gold pattern.
