Power of Piping

Day to Day

Join us on today's blog as we shine a spotlight on piping, exploring its versatility and magic...

In interior design, it’s often the smallest details that have the biggest impact. One such detail is piping, a versatile and charming addition that can transform the look and feel of a space. Piping is not just a functional element but a creative tool that adds texture, colour, and a touch of whimsy to various design elements. Today, we’re shining a spotlight on piping, exploring its versatility and magic.

Piping can be made from a variety of materials, including wool, leather, and linen, allowing for creative freedom in design. By choosing a different fabric for the piping, you can add an extra layer of texture and interest to furniture without overwhelming the space. This technique is perfect for those who can’t decide on a single fabric, as it allows for the incorporation of multiple patterns and colours in a subtle way.

Details like nickel studding and piping can bring headboards to life, adding style and sophistication to a bedroom. These small touches transform an ordinary headboard into a focal point of the room.

We have enhanced our ‘Handle Chairs’ with bold, contrasting piping for a striking appearance.

Piping can significantly impact the design of chairs. For example, the ‘Whitby Chair’ features double layer piping along its curves, accentuating its shape and creating a bold, eye-catching statement. The use of double piping adds distinction and character to the chair.

Piping on stools can create a bespoke charm by outlining the structure and shape. Whether piping the base, top, or both, it helps to separate and contrast different fabrics, adding a unique touch to the design.

From cushions to sofas, piping offers endless creative possibilities. It’s a simple yet effective way to add a sense of customisation and uniqueness to any piece. By thinking outside the box, you can use piping to infuse personality and style into your interior design, making your spaces truly one-of-a-kind.

Adding thin piping to curtains can enhance their dimensionality and sophistication. For instance, in some rooms, piping is used to separate the leading edge from the main curtain fabric, giving the curtains a more polished look.

Piping is a powerful tool in interior design, allowing for the addition of texture, colour, and detail in subtle yet impactful ways. Whether used on furniture, stools, or curtains, piping can elevate the overall aesthetic and create a sense of bespoke elegance. So, don’t be afraid to experiment with piping and add your unique touch to your designs.
