10 Mar, 2023

Sumptuous Layers

Style an inviting, layered look in your living areas and sleep sanctuary with beautiful velvet homeware and bedding. Our new Sovereign and Realm collections offer pieces designed to make your home a place of beauty and comfort. Read on to learn more about the fabric, discover exquisite details and be inspired to style velvet pieces in your home for autumn and winter.


All About: Velvet

The sumptuous look and feel of velvet makes it perfect for bedding and homeware in the cooler months. Velvet fabric is made in a pile weave where threads are woven over wires forming loops which are then cut. The resulting textile has dense, short, even piles which creates a soft, downy surface with a gentle sheen. While our velvet collections are made from pure cotton, velvet was first created using silk making the fabric very expensive. Only royalty and the wealthy could afford such luxurious textiles, adding to the allure and exclusivity of velvet.


Sovereign Velvet Collection

Experience a little luxury every day with our Sovereign velvet bedding. Layer quilts and matching pillowcases on your bed for an inviting place to slumber this season. Made from sumptuous cotton velvet with vertical rice stitch hand-quilting detail that offers a plush, textural look and feel. Our Sovereign Velvet Quilts are designed in a range of colours to effortlessly coordinate with plain or patterned bedding. Choose from quilts, standard and European pillowcases in moss green, classic navy, elegant black and warm toffee. Our Sovereign velvet collection is OEKO-TEX certified.


Styling Sovereign: with patterned bedding

Adding extra layers to your bed for the cooler months, creates a warm and welcoming look. The colours in our Sovereign velvet collection are thoughtfully designed to complement our beautiful patterned bed linen. Style a velvet quilt folded over a patterned duvet for a cosy look, ready to pull up for extra warmth on chilly nights. Our top pick for autumn is layering Sovereign velvets over new season Reverie bed linen. Try toffee, moss or navy Sovereign velvets; the colours of which are all found in the beautiful palette of our hand-painted Reverie design.


Styling Sovereign: with plain bedding

If you prefer a cleaner look, elevate a plain coloured, white or simple striped duvet cover for autumn and winter with soft, textural velvet layers. This will create a beautiful, elegant and timeless look which will maintain it’s style for years to come. Start with a Monarch cotton sateen duvet cover or a striped Purity organic cotton duvet then add plush velvet layers and accents for sleeping in cosy comfort.


Realm Velvet Homeware

Make every day more beautiful with our new Realm velvet homeware collection. Discover statement velvet cushions with linen backing and fringed edges, square and rectangle cushions with an elegant ribbon border, and beautifully patterned and embroidered linen cushions with soft velvet backing. Beautiful, comfy and ready to sink into for relaxing at home this season.

Our Realm velvet accessories are made with care using remnants from our Sovereign velvet bedding, highlighting our low waste and sustainable approach to textiles. Our pretty and practical pieces include bath bags, hottie covers, hot & cold pillows and a new laptop case and pencil case designs.
