We take a fancy to Lelièvre’s fabulously French fabrics

Vibrant velvets and subtly textured geometrics at Lelièvre have us smitten

The French have a soft spot for sensuality – and Lelievre‘s new collections deliver the feel-good factor with typical Parisian élan.

The Cosmos collection of velvets, shown here on chairs and poufs, is available in 50 colours, each as tempting as the icing on a display of French fancies.

We think a shot of one delicious shade would lift a living room or bedroom.

For some sophisticated geometric texture, try Odeon from the Les Classiques collection, a gleaming pique-effect fabric, shown below on the sofa. It comes in 14 colours and costs £87 per m.

If you’re not already smitten, check out Lelièvre’s flamboyant Carrousel, for a spectacular Louis XIV-style damask, and Chaillot, a delicate, chiselled velvet.
