Have you considered how much a fabric choice can change the look of a room? It can! And nothing can heighten the elegance of room quite like silk. Its timeless beauty screams style and sophistication. If you’re interested in adding silk to a room, the consultants here at F&R Interiors serving the greater Los Angeles area will be more than happy to give you some ideas. Read on for more!
The secret of silk stayed in China for more than 2,000 years. But now, even with man-made fibers developed to replace it, silk production has approximately doubled worldwide during the last 30 years. Silk is used in clothing, upholstery, wall coverings, rugs, bedding, wall hangings, and even window treatments.
Using Silk in Your Space
Bringing a new fabric into a room can be daunting, but you have a number of options for introducing silk to your interior design. You can add decorative silk throw pillows, which can bring colors together for a complete, coordinated room. Or you can take a deeper dive by reupholstering some furniture. A classic ottoman, loveseat, or chair re-covered in a classic silk fabric will transform your home. And you can bring it in in your window fashions. Hunter Douglas Window Fashions offer an extensive collection of over 4,000 fabrics, materials, and colors to choose from, including silks. Check out 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.
Caring for Silk
Prized for its luxurious natural beauty, silk is also considered one of the strongest natural fibers. It has excellent elasticity and resilience, which helps designer throw pillows keep their shape and beauty. Silk also naturally resists mildew and moths; unfortunately, over time, moisture will weaken silk fibers, so don’t throw those pillows in the wash!
