Much like winter trends, when decorating our homes, we're always looking for pieces that convey both comfort and warmth. Sure, a plush blanket or a pair of fuzzy socks have a way of temporarily providing that "homey feeling," but when we're looking for hygge bedroom inspo and cozy living room ideas with a bit more longevity, we need to think big picture and discuss our furniture.
For those looking to convey equal parts comfort and warmth within their furniture, there is one upholstery that reigns supreme: velvet.
Now, don't call it a comeback — velvet's a classic. This timeliness material has been a staple in fashion for what feels like forever, and it's continuously topping the winter's seasons hottest trends. The best way to think of it? Velvet is to winter what linen is to summer, so when we're looking to update (or refresh) our homes to reflect this colder season? Opting for a velvet item should be a no brainer.
Velvet is both soft and smooth, and the definition of luxurious. The smooth nap and ultra-shiny appearance exudes elegance and will instantly add dimension and depth anywhere, anytime. I know this first-hand.
I recently opted for a black velvet tufted headboard in my bedroom, and I can't tell you how many compliments I've received. But I can tell you that the price I paid? Not as flattering.
It's true: velvet can come with a hefty price tag, often making it the deciding factor on why people opt out of this fabulous fabric. But what if it didn't have to be like that? What if we found velvet items that looked expensive but weren't? Would this be of interest? Of course, it would – and Walmart's here to save the day.
Right now, Walmart has so many perfect pieces majorly marked down, and we're swooning over every single one of them. From dining room chairs to sofa sectionals, it's one perfect piece after another. Don't believe us? Here are five velvet pieces that look so chic and are all under-$300 at Walmart!
