Gaufraged velvet lends itself to all kinds of upholstered pieces and can often round a scheme together. Different piles are used according to different designs, I particularly like using (indestructible) mohair velvet, but have also used flatter weaves that work well for walling for example. Gaufraged fabrics also sit very well in modern interior schemes. Below are some designs from the Lelievre book of graufrage steering us away from their usual classics.
