When you think of art, you are likely thinking of wall tapestries, pieces that are thick and woven to be hung on a wall and looked at from a distance. While these are, in fact, a type of tapestries, they are not the only ones out there. There is another style of wall tapestries that can make themselves at home all throughout your home. These are chenille tapestries.
Unlike typical tapestries, chenille ones are woven from a much softer and more pliable thread. This makes the tapestries created as much of a throw blanket or even a soft rug on cool nights as they are pieces to be placed on the floor.
Unlike regular tapestries, chenille tapestries not only have a soft feel, but a soft finish in their look. This is because of the thread they have been made from. Instead of solid and crisp lines in the images these have more flowing lines. You can still clearly see the picture you are looking at, but it seems somehow softer and more welcoming, almost like it's a dream vision.
When you add them to the bedroom, they not only add the impact of the image in the picture, which could be a romantic courting scene, but they also add an extra level of softness because of the material used in weaving.
You may have never thought that these works could belong in your child's bedroom, but they actually fit well, if you choose the right ones.
Many people think only of detailed works of art with a lot of purpose and message when they think of tapestries, but there are also tapestries that are for the sheer enjoyment of the image. Some have ships, maps or even knights on horseback. When decorating a child's room these can fit right into an explorer, pirate or even castle motif.
Additionally, instead of placing these on the walls, you could choose to put them elsewhere in the room, like on the bed, making a beautiful bed covering, and also a blanket that the little one can drag around with them when they want a blankie nearby.
Whether it's just because you love beauty in your living room or you are trying to create a beautiful location for having guests, art is well suited for any living room. The only question is, how are you going to use them?
If you choose a beautiful design that speaks for the room, you may want to put it on display.
The next option is to use a beautiful chenille tapestry as a throw. While these are stunning pieces of art, they also can be comfortable throws to wrap around someone on a cold night.
The final use for art in the living room is as a rug. While you may not have ever thought about putting art on the floor, these can handle it. Not only will it give you something beautiful to see when you look down, but also if it's cold out, your feel will appreciate a warm place to sit.
You can use a these pieces of art for your home setting. Tom Matherson writes reviews the fabric and woven art pieces to suit any room and style.
