Damask wallpaper imitates the look, occasionally, but not always, the texture of damask fabrics in which the pattern is intensified by the weave running opposite that of the background. Damask is a richly patterned cotton, linen, silk, wool or synthetic woven fabric. Damask is named after weavers in 12th century Damascus who were renowned for their opulent patterns, the quality of their yarns and the vivacity of their dyes to which they would add gold or silver thread for extra luxury. Originally the fabric would hang on walls which we now replicate on wallpaper. Damask wallpaper is traditionally considered a luxury due to the expense of production. However, the variety and intensity of colours available in damask patterns continues to capture the eye of interior designers and home decorators. However, new material and printing techniques mean that this epitome of grandeur is now available at a much more affordable price. Black and white damask wallpaper is one of the most popular colour combinations available, but damask prints in red, green, purple, yellow and even gold are increasingly popular. Damask wallpaper is a design classic that creates a sumptuous feel in any home. Wallpapers in stunning damask designs work well in living rooms and bedrooms. They also look great with antique accessories, ornate furniture and luxurious fabrics. Damask wallpapers are designed to make a statement and are enhanced when embellished with jeweled colours such as turquoise, gold, ruby and aquamarine. These rich tones will create both an intimate and glamorous room. With some of the wallpapers deploying a flock-effect, raised pattern this will have the effect of adding texture and depth to a room. Damask, once restricted to formal rooms, is today used in a much more widespread way than ever before. Two distinct damask styles have evolved. One is characterised by the latest colour effects, the other simulates a fabric dulled and worn by age. For a traditional look, combine damask wallpaper with equally ornate furniture and accessories such as gilded and antique-style pieces and silks and velvets. If your tastes are more contemporary, damask walls can provide a dramatic background for sleek, modern furniture.
