Chic Velvet Chairs Elevate a Contemporary Living Room

Who: Tanya Meda, designer and stylist

Where: Maplewood, New Jersey

Why we love this pic: The equally bold and chic cobalt velvet chairs instantly make a stylish statement, lending a pop of contemporary flair to the design, while black doors add compelling definition. Meanwhile, a selection of bohemian accents, like the whimsical floating chair and creeping plants, punctuate the look with a warm, homespun feel.

The takeaway: Velvet is never a bad idea.
