Details make such a difference in a room. One of my favorite details to add to furniture is contrast welt. It adds instant sophistication to a piece of upholstered furniture. Contrast welt highlights the lines of a piece of furniture and adds a tailored element to the room.
In baby girl's nursery, I piped the coral armchair with white cotton duck. I used the same white duck under the kickpleats as well.
By using contrast welt, Nick Olsen makes this slipcover look more tailored.
Like the armchair below, contrast welt is a great way to tie a piece of furniture into the color scheme of the rest of the room.

White piping on this blue daybed gives it a crisp and clean look.
Navy piping adds visual interest to solid white sofas that might otherwise overwhelm the room.
Contrasting trim makes this wing chair feel more modern.
The beautifully tailored lines of these navy sofas really stand out.
Do you use contrast welt in your home?
