Tartan / plaid fabrics are a classic and timeless addition to any interior. They work equally well in country style settings and town houses.
Increasingly we are being asked to cover accent chairs and create a range of soft furnishings for our clients. Tartan brings character and interest to a room and can be used to bring colour and pattern to a bland design scheme. The history of tartan is fascinating and includes many myths and tall tales; from its use in identifying Scottish clans, Queen Victoria’s extravagant use of it in Balmoral castle to Vivienne Westwood’s Punk fashion creations
Beside fabrics, wallpaper manufacturers are producing Tartan wallpaper for the very adventurous! Fabric suppliers are rising to the challenge of producing exciting colourways in current colours – colour combinations you would never ever see on a Scottish kilt!
We use fabrics from the Prestigious Textiles ‘Highland’ and the ultra contemporary ‘Glencoe’ collections, along with beautiful colour combinations in tartans from Iliv’s ‘Art Deco’ collection. Including some that wash well at 30 degrees, making them ideal for loose covers and cushions.
