Do you remember Seinfeld’s George Costanza and his biggest life goal? While he may have been career-challenged and romantically inept – and stuck living with his parents on too many occasions – his one true love was velvet. In fact, in the ever-popular series he was often quoted as saying that he would, “drape himself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.” That seemed pretty ridiculous until the episode entitled “The Doodle” where he covered himself in velvet from head to toe and carried on in public!
While your love for velvet might not reach the epic proportions of George Constanza’s (or maybe it does!), you have probably been considering getting on board with the newest trends in crushed velvet beds. A crushed velvet bed brings an element of lushness and glamour into your bedroom décor while also surrounding you – whether as an upholstered headboard/footboard or the entire frame – in one of the softest fabrics produced. Sleeping (or even just watching television) in a crushed velvet bed will make you feel like royalty – with all of the lavishness of the fabric cascading around you.
There are about sixteen types of velvet used in tapestries and upholsteries throughout the world – both natural and synthetic in nature. Some of these include such velvets as:
· Mirror velvet
· Embossed velvet
· Chiffon (sometimes known as “transparent”) velvet
· Cisele velvet
· Lyons velvet
· Hammered velvet
Crushed velvet, however – at least in our opinion – is one of the most decadent velvets produced. Crushed velvet is painstakingly fashioned by pushing its fabric in several varying directions – often done mechanically while the fabric is still wet. The unique production technique of crushed velvet gives its appearance and texture a very lustrous and inviting feel – which, when incorporated into your bedroom set, is a velvet lover’s dream come true.

Another benefit of crushed velvet is that it is a very heavy and durable fabric. It’s quite simple to clean. Most of the time you’ll just want to lightly dust the fabric off, however, heavier stains do require some warm water and a touch of soap or detergent.
But beyond the functionality of crushed velvet is the way it will make you feel. Your first time lying down in your new crushed velvet bed will make you feel like you are floating on air, surrounded by a beautiful piece of furniture that is uniquely yours. When your friends come to visit and you’re giving them the updated tour of your house, you won’t want to wait to wait to show off your new crushed velvet bed. Your best friend’s look of envy will quickly remind you that you made the right purchase.
While you may have spent the majority of your life in a more traditional type of bed, an investment in a crushed velvet bed will bring you luxury and decadence for decades to come. It is an investment that will pay you back with lavishness every single night you head to bed.
