Why we love this pic: Velvet is definitely a statement-making fabric, but that doesn't mean it has to overwhelm your design. This minimal space featuring a white-dominant color palette is only more dynamic with the addition of that emerald green velvet chair. If you want to maintain a minimal aesthetic while rocking this trend, simply stick to one or two dominant hues.

The takeaway: A piece of velvet furniture elevates a minimal design.
