Green Velvet with Animal Print!

What a fabulous combination! I know I have posted about green velvet lounges a couple of times before (they happen to be a favourite), but after looking through images of Miles Redd's work recently, I see that he likes to accessorise with animal print which is another favourite of mine! The following three images are all rooms by Miles Redd with green velvet sofas and animal print cushions.

Love the geometric print side chair as well!

Such an interesting room but the sofa is the icing on the cake!

Fabulous use of studwork on this sofa - love it paired with the red ottoman!

This gorgeous combination has been used by other designers as well:


Tory Burch's NY appartment by Daniel Romualdez...



Room by Palmer Weiss...




And the original, Hubert De Givenchy!
Such a fabulous look is always bound to get replicated...who knows, I may even use it myself one day! Tracey xx

Great collection of photos. Yet, I just love the first two. There is something about the green and blues that I think are so lovely.

I am incorporating some green/blue velvet pillows and a zebra print bed sham on my bed. I will be posting pictures of it soon. I love these rooms!

I too love green velvet sofas. Either that or chocolate brown velvet. Both are delicious. My next sofa will be one of the two, with down cushions.
Thanks for the pictures. It is always inspiring to see fun combinations like velvet and animal prints.

You can post about squishy green sofas as many times as you like gorgeous girls! Whatever prints you put with the green just look fab, but those animal prints take it to a whole new level.

I think the outline on the sofa pillows is what does it for me...though I do love the color and print combo as well!
