Blue Velvet

I Love the richness of Blue Velvet, These beautiful chairs & sofa's are to die for!
My Great Grandmother had the most beautiful Dark Blue Mohair sofa and chair, I had never seen anything like it, purchased in the late 40's after 40+ years it still looked new.

Amazing! I kept thinking of the oldie...She Wore Blue Velvet...while looking at your pics. That was probably before your time! Found you through Garden Antqs Vintage.
Happy New Year Blessings!

I love blue velvet!
My chair in my office has this gorgeous blue velvet slip cover over it right now.
I think the gorgeous tufted chaise is from George Smith?
It has such wonderful lines.
Thank you for the inspiration.

Like "delighted heart" I also thought of Bobby Vinton singing 'she wore blue velvet.' Most of my formal gowns during high school and beyond were of some shade of blue. I love it!

Love it! I just bought blue chairs for my dining room and I am in love with them. I also got white covers to go over them and I had a hard time covering them but I am trying to stay with my plan. The blue velvet is beautiful.

Ohhhhhhhh...I love the blue chaise!

The MOHAIR...isn't it great? My grandmother had a PINK sofa, love seat and chair in her large living room, when I was a kid...back in the 50's. I loved it!!!
