Positive impulses spread through the air as soon as the Happy Velvet Pink graces a room with its presence. Pink is a lively, impulsive colour which, at the same time, resonates stability. It’s almost like love at first sight: overwhelming and riveting. One can simply not look somewhere else and there’s this feeling of being invincible as long as that one person is by one’s side. Our Happy Velvet takes up a room like that, everyone simply has to look at it. Those who like strong accents in their living room should definitely not pass up on our Happy Velvet Pink.

Cyan as a hybrid of blue and green combines the feeling of security, yearning and beauty. A magnificent colour like that used to be at home in the royal houses of Europe, and even now its occurrence in world religions has a special, spiritual meaning. Our Happy Velvet Dark Cyan has this majestic flair. Particularly the wishfulnes to be close to the sea (more on that here), is reflected in our Dark Cyan Velour. The waves of the South Pacific break on the coast of Hawaii and are suddenly reflected in thousand shades of turquoise. The ocean breeze tastes of salt and you know: this moment is yours alone. Our Happy Velvet Dark Cyan radiates a feeling of utter contentment and relaxation. It has the power to bring you back from the curb of daily strains to the coasts of the South Pacific, so that all your worries and problems just vanish like magic.

The Happy Velvet Powder Grey is a shade of grey with a touch of blue. That blueness gives the velour a less mundane vibe. Compared to other grey coloured velours, Powder Grey is everything but boring or reserved. The slight blue undertone gives the velour a very precious and chic touch. Because of its delicate silver gleam, dependent on incidence of lights, the velour does remind of the facade of a sky scraper. Tinted glass and metal melted together into a visual entity in order to build a breathtaking picture. This look is mirrored in out Powder Grey. A velour that fits perfectly into your interior design plans and thus finds a space in your home.

Pretty in every form and most of all: happy!

You can transform your home into an even happier place with an accent of colour à la Happy Velvet. Either as a Drop City Armchair in pink, a croissant chair in Dark Cyan, Moonraft couch in Powder Grey, as a throw pillow in Terra Cotta or even as a dining room chair in Gold Green: the Happy Velvets spread a good mood in all of their shapes and forms!
