Luxurious interiors using damask fabric

Damask fabric is a reversible fabric with a pattern formed by weaving. It can be made from various fabrics including silk, wool, linen, cotton or synthetic fibres.

It was originally woven in the early middle ages and is named after the city of Damascus which, at the time, was a large city popular for trading and manufacturing. It is generally woven on a jacquard loom with a satin weave and a sateen weave which gives it a slight sheen.

For a more opulent feel have as full-length curtains and use with an interlining for added elegance. Add tie-backs as a finishing touch and to complete the formal look. Silk fabric can be expensive so for a more affordable option look for a faux silk fabric.
