Silk, the most revered and luxurious fabric, is elegant and natural with a lustrous and smooth texture. Owing to its royal look and feel, silk is one of the classic and sought-after fabrics to be used in home interiors. Although silk is expensive to buy and costly to maintain, it has its own set of advantages. Its refined texture and resilient feature make it a perfect choice for home décor. Staying cooler in summers and warmer in winters is it's another advantage. To give your home interior a royal and luxurious feel and look, here are some ways that you can use silk at your home.


Silk is not very apt for daily-use furniture. Drape the upholstery to pieces that are used occasionally. But, silk upholstery need extra care and a layer of knit to give it backing and a strong base. A durable upholstery padding will give more support and texture to the silk covering.
