4 Easy Ways To Use Embroidered Fabric

Once synonymous with delicate hand stitching and needlepoint, embroidery has undergone a transformation and is now used in many different ways. Sewn onto upholstery fabrics or featured as trim on an ottoman, embroidery has become increasingly durable and is no longer exclusively used for drapery. Check out these four easy ways to incorporate embroidered fabrics into your decor:

1. Coordinate Seat Cushions & Pillows

Embroidery looks delicate and luxurious but is actually durable enough for both drapery and upholstery applications. Use coordinating embroidered fabrics on seat cushions, pillows, and ottomans to create an exotic sitting area.
