If I were to come to you and say I want to use a wall tapestry into your reading room, what would be the first thing that pops in your mind? An old, musty, dated cloth on the wall? Well, in many instances you wouldn’t be far off, but Tapestries, Ltd. has taken the idea of an old, rustic wall tapestry and thrown it clear out the window.

Typically, tapestries are made of wool, though are also seen in cotton and, more rarely, silk, gold, or silver threads. As a true representation of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, they can depict ancient family crests, landscapes, hunting scenes, or even important moments in history. The amount of time and skill that goes into the creation of each tapestry makes them a treasure unto themselves, let alone a beautiful piece of eighteenth century artwork hung in your home.

Hop on over to the Tapestries, Ltd. website and take a look at some of what they have to offer. I have found some real outstanding pieces while looking through their website, and a new and refreshing tapestry can really add a perfect sense of the days of past to your home.
