Trends: Velvet Makes a Strong Return in 2020

If you are over 50 (that used to seem soooo old…lol), you undoubtedly grew up around velvet furniture. Often, it was the furniture in the living room – sometimes covered in the plastic that no one – especially the kids dared to lounge around in until guests came over. It was used in more formal settings, unlike today where it can be placed in casual or formal settings.
