Tie backs curtain, fabric curtain tiebacks, tassel fringe, and trim tassels come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and in an extensive band of colors. The fabric also varies from medium-level to designer fabric, depending upon customer and market needs. Take the Venetian tassels and tie-backs, for instance, which provide an archetypical class for floor-to-ceiling pooled silk drapes, as well as plain tassels that can make striped curtains look extremely pretty. Trims are just the thing used to enhance upholstery including (but definitely not limited to) draperies and pillows. You can also include slipcovers and ottomans in this list.
Always pay very close attention to the durability of the fabric. Remember a furniture item is going to be used daily, it is going to be put through its paces so buying a poor quality or not too durable material is only going to result in you having to have the item recovered in the near future. If you spend the money on a durable upholstery fabric, then it can last for years without the need of replacement, which saves you money and time in the long run.
Next is silk. When looking at silk for curtain and upholstery fabrics then you are looking at sheer luxury. Silk oozes luxury and comfort and is an absorbent fabric which is used for garments, curtains and more. It is important to note that while silk may give you a luxurious finish, it is not ideal if you want darker and thicker curtains to block out the sun. Further, you will note that this material usually needs to be dry cleaned.
Other great prints and patterns that are appropriate for the season include butterfly prints, floral prints, tropical flora and fauna prints and nautical themed prints. These are slightly more subtle in their design and are not so exclusive to the season - for example a nautical print can be perfect for any room with a nautical theme or color scheme. Butterfly and floral prints of various designs and hues are also gorgeous in the home all year round, adding the feeling of something light, airy and reminiscent of summer without being too kitsch or seasonal. Furthermore, there is a great deal of choice here in regards to color and designs on the market to choose from.
