A real eye-catcher

Fabric wall coverings


Only opaque fabrics are suitable, and should be fine and smooth rather than heavy and coarse. Shiny satins or damask portray a particularly sophisticated effect, although matt cotton and linen are also good options. Different fabrics can be combined by the banner or from wall to wall. In general, hanging coverings on every wall of a room should be avoided. Nevertheless, the more wall surface the covering spans, the more subtle and intricately patterned the fabric should be. In any case, the style and age of the surrounding architecture should be considered. Historical textile designs such as damask patterns always suit historical buildings, but could also provide a masterful contrast in modern, linear architecture. Regardless, it is always a good idea to limit wall coverings to one wall instead of the whole room. This wall is guaranteed to be a real eye-catcher!
