Elegant fabrics can bring texture, color, and beauty to any home. Silk is a timeless fabric that screams style and tops the list of elegant fabrics. For more than 2,000 years, the Chinese kept the secret of silk to themselves. However, for the last 30 years, the world’s silk production has approximately doubled and is woven into the stunning textiles. Silk is also being used for upholstery, wall coverings, rugs, bedding, wall hangings, and even window treatments. If you want to add a little elegance to your home, bring in a touch of silk. For ideas on how to add silk to your home, speak with a trained consultant at Window Treats serving the New Jersey area. We’ll be happy to help!
The Beauty of Silk is Inspirational
You can introduce silk to your home in numerous ways. If you are looking for a smaller statement, consider adding decorative silk pillows. Designer throw pillows bring selected colors together for a complete, coordinated room. When you’re ready to make a larger statement, consider reupholstering an old piece of furniture. A classic ottoman, loveseat, or chair re-covered in a silk fabric will transform your home.
Dress your Windows in Silk
Hunter Douglas Window Fashions offers an extensive collection of over 4,000 fabrics, materials, and colors to choose from. Among them, of course, are beautiful silks. From silk fabrics to sleek decorative tapes, you’ll find the perfect pattern and design to elevate your décor. Specifically, take some time to look at the Vignette® Modern Roman Shades Textured Silks Collection, which includes Etched, India Silk, Satin Weave, and Shantung. These beautiful silks have a large range of textures and sheens and are available in a variety of inspirational colors and hues.
Elasticity and Resilience
In addition to being one of the world’s most elegant fabrics, silk is also considered the strongest of nature’s fibers. It has excellent elasticity and resilience, which helps your custom pillows keep their shape and beauty. Silk is also resistant to mildew and moths. However, moisture, over time, will weaken the fibers, so dry-cleaning is recommended for care.
