upholstered walls

I try to keep this blog pretty much on textiles and fibers and away from interior design since there are so many excellent design blogs out there. But I saw this in the September issue of House Beautiful and thought it was worth mentioning.




Those are upholstered walls, done in crewel embroidery. Such beautiful texture, such richness, and with that Warhol......swoon...

It's probably good that I don't have upholstered walls. I'd surely ruin the embroidery from running my hands over it all the time.

My grandparents had upholstered walls, and I was always fascinated by them. Upholstery boggles my mind - being an upholsterer sounds like a difficult job, but the results are amazing
