About this title


Chinese silks, Egyptian linens, Afghan rugs: every culture recognizes the sensuality and functionality of textiles. Yet, too often their striking contribution to the modern interior is overlooked. Over 140 eye-opening color photos reveal what a wonderful difference they make, draping the walls, covering a bed, upholstering the furniture, warming the floors, softening the lines. Display a small hooked rug as a piece of art, or turn an obi (a kimono sash) into the perfect table runner--you're limited only by your imagination. Every page features a new application for textiles in the home, from hangings to room dividers, as well as information on particular fashions and period effects, including Indian, Japanese, African, French, and English Formal. It's inspiration and information for bringing unique style to your environment.
