Jaguar Velours Soie

An enduring favorite of decorators, pick up just about any good design magazine and you'll see some type animal print.  Among the best known and my personal favorite is Clarence House's Jaguar Velours Soie, a silk velvet that is hand woven in Venice.  You may recall from yesterday's post that Ted Tuttle used the fabric throughout his beautiful and sublime home.  The luxurious velvet popped against his crisp white walls and upholstery...but as I've said before, animal print is a neutral and really goes with just about any pattern and color.  I would die for the two chairs in the Miles Redd designed room pictured above.  Unfortunately at a staggering $600-a-yard I can only dream of laying my head down on even the smallest of pillows.  So for now I'll admire it from afar and add it to my ultimate wish list....

Miles also used it for pillows throughout this house featured in Town and Country
Nick Olsen used a small pillow to pop against a purple chair in the July issue of House Beautiful...
he also used it in his own home, featured in Lonny
Tory Burch (above) and Palmer Weiss (below) both used the fabric with a green sofa - love this look!
