Now you all know how much I love my textiles, and I love the complementary fine art of passementerie too. “Passement” comes from a French word and is generally taken to mean decorative trimmings, tassels and edgings made from silk or cotton or occasionally wool, Some older tassels were constructed around a wooden base and newer quality ones still are.
With a sound place in French interior design history, I should consider using a few appropriate braids or tassels in my fixer upper.
And why not? even in a simple scheme there is a place for these mini works of art like the elaborate silk tie backs above and a simple, modern cotton version- right.
I am now addicted to bobble fringing-left –and seriously need to restrain myself or my bedroom will become bobblefest…
