Draperies

By Jura Koncius September 27

Grouping objects in a pleasing arrangement is the goal of a vignette. Designers work hard on their tablescaping game, creating small compositions layered with texture and color that draw raves on Instagram. We asked some local designers to describe their process.

Fashion first advanced this luxe fabric and now it's marching into the home

Contrasting dramatically with the recent decorating trend of cool and sleek industrial designs, velvet is all warm and cozy with a plush texture and feel-good personality. It works in both traditional and contemporary interiors.

Using heavier upholstery weight fabrics will feel softer and look more inviting on seating that you will feel under your legs and hands. Draperies can add to this feeling by using the heavier fabric there too, instead of lighter drapery fabrics, and give the design element of surprise. Either weight can add warmth by making the draperies fuller and long enough to puddle on the floor. This also adds warmth to the walls and floor, and changes the ambiance of the room.
