How to Use Trims, Tassels, and Fringe

A Guide to Using Them for Your Next Home Project

Elegant embellishments for drapery have returned and tassels, trims, and fringe have become all the rage. You may have also looked into them yourself but how exactly do you make them work? 

The trend is something you should try on your next project, and if you need ideas on how you can craft designs out of them for drapery, upholstery, and more, then read on.

Using Them With Pillows

Your pillows can feature tassels on the corners or fringe along the edges, adding accents to your otherwise dull pillow. They especially work well with pillows that feature textures and Southwestern or contemporary designs.

Using Them for Blankets

Do tassels work for blankets as well? Definitely. Just like with pillows, tassels and fringe work excellently with textured throw blankets. When you just want to relax on the couch on a cold evening, throw blankets are perfect, and you can make them even better with tassels.

Using Them for Rugs

To add to that cozy feel, why not try adding tassels and trims for rugs? Then also work well, especially with more culturally-inspired styles. They will do perfectly for rugs that come in brighter or bolder colors and will definitely make a statement in your home. Customers ask us to make rugs, where our experts bind our premium textiles.

Using Them for Beddings

Small tassels can also be used in beddings, be it textured quilts, comforters, or bed skirts. Those with edges that are trimmed subtly are perfect for beddings, merely adding accents instead of standing out a bit too much.

Using Them for Drapery

Tassels, trims, and fringe go hand-in-hand with curtains in that they add that sense of luxury, even for the most mundane-looking pieces of drapery. They can be a simple way to add elegance to your home.

Have you decided on what you can use tassels, trims, and fringe for? Why not start using them in your future projects, whether they be pillows, blankets, rugs, beddings, or drapery? They will add that much-needed style and design factor to your home.
