A little history on fabric walls

Did you know that Wall upholstery started as portable hangings?
During the medieval period to keep Kings and Queen’s stone castle warmer and more comfortable, tapestries hung across the doorways.
Also, bedrooms had hangings made from woven wool or linen. These thick materials fitted around the posts of a bed kept the cold away in France, England or Italy.
Because of their travels, nobility contributed to the spreading of tapestries for the walls. At the same time, various types of hangings or fabrics reached other countries.

In the 17 century, people stopped gradually to be on the move, settling in their homes. Consequently portable hangings became permanent. The European practice of applying fabric on walls dates from that period.

Textiles on walls of the 18th and 19th century homes

The homes of the wealthy in this century had great interiors with furniture, fabric wall coverings, draperies well coordinated. Emperors, tsar had magnificent fabrics in their large rooms. Still, we can admire some in few palaces and castles across Europe. In France, you have the famous Chateau de Versailles and Chateau de Fontainebleau. Further east in Vienna, Austria, the Schönbrunn Palace. Traditionally used to decorate the homes of the aristocracy, wall upholstery remains an art form that requires skilled craftsmanship.

Throughout the 19th and up to the mid-20th century, the fitting remains the same. A fabric was tacked to a wall and a braid was applied around a room. So, only fabric gradually changed with fashion and new fibers were introduced.

Wall upholstery business today

When plastic arrived on the market, new products were born. As a result, upholstery evolved for other fitting techniques. Today, wall upholstery tacks are replaced slowly by track systems. Note that most tracks are very good for commercial installation. But they will not work well in residential interiors. Our homes have not the same finish compare to public environment such as conference room.
For example, moldings around the rooms have far more features like below a window. Even at the top and bottom of custom made cabinets or on a mantelpiece over a chimney. A home has complex millwork. The architectural details are definitively more present in private residences. Therefore, some of these tracks won’t do the job. I encourage you to take the time to compare all of the products out there and here too.
