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.
