Velvet: A decor favorite now that never went away

This image provided by John McClain Design shows a home theater with red velvet on the wall panels. The 'champagne-hued velvet' is on the big couch in foreground. For an Orlando, FL project, designer John McClain and his client wanted to evoke an Art Deco aesthetic, yet still design a functional state-of-the-art home theater. "We upholstered portions of the walls with red velvet inside of wooden accent panels to gain the hard-to-soft-surface-ratio that would normally be accomplished with acoustical panels or wall covering." Champagne-hued velvet seating completes the elegant, comfortable look. (John McClain Design and Zeke Ruelas/AP)
