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.
2. Embellish With Decorative Pillows
Embroidered pillows embellish casual decor and enrich a formal space by adding detailed ornamentation. Whether your style is modern or traditional, embroidered throw pillows will add pizzazz and refine your decor.
3. Accent Drapery Panels
Hang drapery panels with an embroidered edge to give a sophisticated feel to a luxe room, and complement it with embroidered linen fabrics. Love the look of an embroidered curtain but can’t find the perfect fabric? Trim your favorite solid pattern with a wide embroidered tape instead!
4. Add Color To An Entry Way
Bursts of red detailing pop against ivory silk pillows in an entryway. An Asian motif and embroidered trellis dress up a more casual leaf print. Mix and match embroidered prints in the same color family for a tailored display.
