Tassel fringes, cut fringes, bullion, and countless other variations of trimmings are part and parcel of the interior designer’s sample library.

Admittedly, the trend lately was to avoid fuss and frill on curtains, blinds and cushions but we are seeing a return to the maximalism style of decoration.

This is where trimmings find their happy place.

Trimmings nowadays can be produced from any kind of yarn - from the royal silk threads to the rustic linens and wool. This means, whether you like sparkle or matte, there will be a trim to suit your taste!

I particularly love to add trimming details to cushions these days. They will elevate your cushion to something artisan and unique.

Even a plain cushion looks so much better with a little cord trim.

Plain curtains really suit a broad braid on the leading edge and these are available in traditional or modern styles.

If you have a curtain placed where the bottom hem can be clearly seen then some form of trimming adds a lot of character.

There are simply endless ways to use them with wonderful effect! We hope this post has piqued your interest in the world of trimmings – how they can be used and how they really finish off soft furnishings and add a sense of luxury to the home.

If you’d like more information on trimmings or if you’d like help with the redecoration of your home, don’t hesitate to get in touch! We offer a service that includes design, supply and manufacture, and fit-out. We’d love to listen to your ideas, offer professional advice and make your home fit your needs and aesthetic.
