Our Welles Limited-Edition Sofa combines two of the season’s most sought-after trends – bright botanical prints with soft, luxurious velvet. Learn the backstory on this beautiful new statement piece.
One of the biggest trends in patterns this fall is rich saturated florals. And not traditional florals, but vibrant designs that harken back to drawings you’d find in historic botanical books. These classic designs have been given a modern twist, through large-scale printing in bright, bold hues.
Tapping into this gorgeous trend, we commissioned an original flamingo piece from watercolorist, Suren Nersisyan. His work complements the Welles’ full blooms with tropical-esque greenery, in a stunning palette of fushia, teal, and lime.
Putting our best foot forward, we decided to have the design printed on a true cotton velvet, not a poly-blend. Traditionally, patterns on fabrics are woven into goods during the weaving process, meaning yarn dyed goods were the only real option for intricate prints (no velvets, or microfiber.) Digital printing has changed all that.
“This is where old meets new. Digital printing has, and is, changing the textile business,” Joybird co-founder Josh Stellin explains. “You can now take larger goods like batch-dyed velvets and digitally transfer or print any custom color scheme or pattern.”
This limited-edition Welles employs a cutting-edge textile wrapped on a transitional frame. The Welles has a sleek, modern feel, while its button tufting adds a touch of traditional charm. With eye-catching gold legs and deep blue velvet paneling on the sofa’s sides, framing the awe-inspiring floral upholstery, this Welles is as chic as it is sensational.
While this dazzling fabric is limited, we were also able to use it to create matching decorative pillows, a Kavi Limited Edition Pouf Ottoman, as well as a limited-edition of our classic Soto Chair, delightfully decked out in these brilliant blooms!
While this Welles is perfectly on-trend and beautifully crafted, what makes it really special is that it’s truly one-of-a-kind (a very limited quantity are being produced.) Bring this gorgeous statement piece into your home and you’ll instantly elevate your living room with a unique design you’re sure to love!
