Damask Wallpaper – Traditional Elegance For Today’s Modern Homes

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Damask DesignDamask wallpaper is inspired by traditional design and original damask patterns. Damask fabric was first woven in Spain, Italy, and France. The patterns are taken from original centuries old fabrics then applied to the wallpaper, offering that really traditional, classic, and elegant damask wallpaper.

Damask wallpaper was once only considered for a very formal room, but now it can be used for anything from the most formal dining area to the most casual living area. While traditional damask patterns are still the most popular, modern versions of classic damask designs have sprung into the manufacturing and design of damask papers.

Once considered a luxury as it was a product that consisted of additional materials such as velvet. It was rich and opulent. Today however it has a popularity  among decorators for it’s variety in design and modern feel. Black and white damask wallcoverings are one of the most popular colour combinations available, but beautiful prints in magenta, lavender, pale yellow and even brown are gaining popularity.
