Home Interior Accessory -Viridis -SOLD


lively hand-painted velvet cushionsvelvet interior accent



From the Latin word for GREEN, Viridis is a vibrant splash of color.

Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta says her Viridis has 50 shades of green … but maybe she’s just thinking of actor Christian Grey.

Annyta Lolyta’s favourite color is GREEN, if you haven’t noticed. She can’t help herself when it comes to creating shades of green. She has her own GREEN CUSHION PAGE and she wrote about the influence of green in other art masterpieces in her COLOR GREEN BLOG.

This home interior accessory explodes with color, as does Viridis’ companion Ioarana. Eye-catching colors are the trademark of Velvet Matters products: colors so rich your eyes are drawn to them. It took Annyta decades of working with textiles to be able to perfect her creation and use of her custom-made tints.

Annyta literally “paints” on velvet. She begins with a base piece of changeant velvet [which has an indescribable two-tone effect] and then literally draws in the colors and designs that inspire her. All of these cushions have the vibrant coloring that will just bring a smile to your face. Viridis will be happy laying along side Annyta’s other greens like Riverside, Tirillo, Green Hornet or Indian Summer I & Indian Summer II.

Just a word about Annyta’s trademark changeant velvet: it gives off a two-tone lighting effect that EVOKES DIFFERENT EMOTIONS.  Seen from one angle of light, a Velvet Matter will appear to be a different color, another product entirely. Combined with Annyta’s ability to paint on velvet, changeant velvet gives her home interior accessories that extra touch of excellence.

I Came…I Saw…I Bought One of Annyta’s Cushions

Green brings out the artist in Dutch Designer Annyta Lolyta. For more than 20 years, she has been combining her colors to accentuate their liveliness. Each changeant velvet band is handmade and hand-painted. Her products are artisan and artful, and perfect for your home or office. They are luxury in velvet.

Take a look at her other work here, on the cushion homepage.

All Velvet Matters products are handmade in the Netherlands by Annyta. Since 1995, she has been making exclusive, hand-printed scarves and other fashion accessories. The Velvet Matters webshop now brings Annyta’s specialized velvet accessories to the world. Annyta’s speciality is printing/stamping/painting/embossing on velvet, a craft that she learned in England two decades ago, and has developed and refined ever since. She has a distinct style, combining different fabrics with a wonderful sense of colour and form.

Our velvet is made of 63% acetate and 37% viscose.
Our felt is 100% wool.

NOTE #1: Our cushions are filled with down feathers. If you want to buy just the cushion cover with no fill or substitute another type of fill, please contact us.
Note #2: Velvet Matters products become more alive and beautiful with age. But please protect them. Even though we use the highest high quality changeant or shot-silk velvet, prolonged exposure to bright sunlight might cause some fading or discolouring. For maintenance tips see the FAQ.
Note #3: Just like dating-site photographs, our Velvet Matters cushion colours might look just a little different in reality. But don’t worry, unlike dating sites, our velvet cushions are always even more beautiful in real life – it’s just that maybe, once in a while, they might look a little different from the web photos.
