I stumbled upon this thread when doing some researching on how to cover my walls with velvet.
My screen wall is covered by a very black velvet and looks great.
I have decided I want to have all my walls matching and create a clean look with velvet. My plan is to attach the velvet to a board at the top of the ceiling and create a "wall of curtains". What I didn't take into account is how it would effect my current room treatments, which are all absorber panels. I am planning on adding some diffusers, so that has me worried on what to do.
Originally I was going to buy a bunch of velvet curtains and hang them. Then a fellow forum member advised me that those would be too thick, so I started looking at bulk velvet material. Today I stopped into Joanns and picked up a sample of a stretch velvet that was on sale. I also had some leftover scrap material from the screen wall, so I hung both to compare. The material from screen wall is as black as night...
I have attached a few pictures to show the differences. The only thing is, the velvet that matches my screen wall is almost twice the price as the other. Since I need approximately 50 yards to finish the project, that is a huge difference.
After reading through the thread, I found the Sy Fabric triple velvet. It looks almost identical to the stuff I have on my screen wall from Joann's.
I am looking for a little guidance/opinions from those that have more experience with this.
