Gray velvet is a lighter shade of KT 26.012 Art gallery gray. The references for these related colors were found on wall samples from the salon of the Villa La Roche. They served the owner of the building, Raoul La Roche, as the background colors for the presentation of Cubist art collection. A prudent choice, as subtle gray colors such as these two remain discretely in the background while allowing ambient colors to look more luminous. This lends depth to a space and allows artwork to look brighter.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
