revealing too many trade secrets, they are essentially fabricated
with a unique inlay process. The vibrant color palette available

considering a broadloom tapestry, it's important to ask a few key
questions, for example: How do we come up with a design? There will
likely be a discovery phase; exploring concepts, then a few renderings
are created and finally a design is agreed on.
will the tapestry be mounted? For large scale tapestries, it's best
to secure the tapestry on the wall with a special adhesive, making
a more or less permanent install. For smaller tapestries, the same
applies, however the tapestry can alternatively be stapled in place
- invisibly - or hung from a decorative rod.
are materials and colors chosen? There should be many options available
in colors, style and textures. The broadloom mills like Shaw and
Mohawk have extensive selections, here's a few: try a sophisticated
patterned piece, or a thick plush style, or even shorter commercial
grade options. Wool selections are also available. Samples and swatches
can easily be shipped direct from the mills.

will certainly generate a buzz in the designated space as well as
create a quieter environment in those settings that demand it.
wrapping up we have discovered that broadloom tapestries are ideal
candidates for corporate art installations. They can add color and
soften a noisy space at the same time, and can be scaled up to larger
sizes. There are ample colors and styles to work with as well.
