B is for Bullion Fringe

The ABC’s of Window Treatments

Since there are so many confusing terms about window treatments I’ve decided to include materials as well as styles in this series. 

B is for bullion fringe…………. Bullion fringe is a long fringe with individual twisted cords.  It comes in 2.5”, 6” and 9” lengths and can be a solid color or multi colored.

Bullion fringe can be used to soften a piece of furniture by adding it to the bottom of sofas, chairs and ottomans like the one by Hickory Chair below.

It is also a good trim to add to the bottom of valances and shades to highlight the curvy shape.

It looks great on pillows and table runners too.

Here’s an example of just how creative you can get with trim !  Every child needs a Moroccan inspired playhouse complete with lounging area and lanterns.

Knowing the cost of a good bullion fringe, I'm calculating how much that Morrocan playhouse is worth!! You've hit upon a series that is very appealing. Good job!
