Curtains for Arts and Crafts homes made to order, in natural fibers. Plain, appliquéd, or stenciled. Also pillows and table runners.
Practically, this drapery hung in doorways to stop drafts (and dampens sound) between rooms—but portieres also offer a romantic, inviting transition by softening doorways. Most were frequently made from tapestry to match the wall hangings and give some decorative cohesion to the room, but portieres might also be made of strung beads, tassels and decorative cording, even seashells (for your beach bungalow). They remain an appropriate accent for the Arts & Crafts home today.
Carpets and rugs, fabrics, pillows and bedding, curtains and shades, table linens and more: here are the best historical and revival-style soft furnishings for your home. In opposition to mass consumerism and copy-cat products, today there are many communities of craftspeople who are working to create unique, hand-crafted textiles. Please take a look at the many businesses below to find your unique one-of-kind material or item.
