Not completely new, but worth taking a quick look at , is the trend of using pliable natural fiber blankets, rugs and tapestries as upholstery fabric. NOt much explanation is required here. We’ve been seeing the vintage suzanis and kilims used as such for a few years now. However, I am starting to see more blankets, dhurries and vintage serapes being used. Some of the most interesting choices involve a modern frame with a traditional ethnic rug and vice-versa. Here are just a few pics I got from Google images.
Love this – I just recovered my sofa with two army surplus blankets!
Oh boy, let’s see it!!!
Mmm – will try to do pic. Technically, I recovered the cushions (with red blanket stitching on the edges) and threw a blanket over the rest!
