Decorating Your Home With Antique Tapestry

Aug 27, 2008
If you are interested in a unique wall design for a room in your home, you should consider antique tapestry. This rich form or textile art can add a wonderful design and character to your home. You can adorn a single wall, or all four of your walls with beautiful antique tapestry.

The wonderful thing about tapestry is that it is portable. If you want to redecorate later on, you can easily remove the antique tapestry from your wall and put it on another one. Historically, royalty used tapestry to decorate rooms in their castles. Heavy tapestry was used to help keep the castle rooms warm in the winter time.

Tapestry is the result of creative design that all starts out with a sketch. The ideas for the design of a tapestry are first drawn on a paper or a piece of cardboard. After that, a craftsman or weaver will use the sketch as a guide to create the tapestry. The colorful threads and fabrics are then added to give the design life and style. What wonderful item to display in your home!

When you are choosing a piece of antique tapestry to display in your home, pay attention to the details. Each thread was hand-picked; these threads were all chosen by someone who had a special design in mind. Study the patterns and examine what colors were used to create such a fine piece of art. Tapestries are almost like paintings without the paint.

The furniture in the room should have similar colors to the tapestry, to give the room a put together look. other antique items, like an antique lamp or other antique furniture can give the room an authentic feel. Make sure that other items in the room don't take away from the attractiveness of the antique tapestry.

There are some more modern tapestries available today, but most of these were created in factories. These are still very beautiful and intricately detailed. Even so, handmade tapestry is typically of a higher quality and each piece is unique. The handmade tapestries, particularly the antique ones, are priced much higher than the more modern factory made ones, but the value is truly priceless.

Back in time a tapestry was a symbol of royalty, wealth and status. Why not reflect that type of history in your home? The more appreciation you have for the art of an antique tapestry, the more you will enjoy showing it to visitors. Antique tapestry is sophisticated and debonair.
