Tapestry is a richly woven fabric, usually with pastoral or classical themes reminiscent of antique wall tapestries. Hand-woven tapestries, even in pillow form, are beyond many budgets, but machine-made pillows are ubiquitous and inexpensive. Floral designs are perhaps most common for this type of pillow.
Fringed pillows, depending on the fabric they are made from, can be at home in either a formal or a casual room. Silks and velvets might be found in a living room, and microfibers and cottons in a den. The fringe’s length and thickness varies from pillow to pillow.
Tasseled pillows usually have a tassel at each corner, and sometimes one in the center for added dimension and detail. They have an elegant look that suits a more formal room.
Bathroom is one of the most important rooms of your home. It is the place where you get ready to begin each day and prepare to end each day. It is also a great space within your home where you are able to enjoy some privacy and pamper yourself.
