Artistic ceramic tiles can be also a variant as a floor covering. However, recently it became popular to laminate the floor. Herewith, floor can be covered with inserts of another picture and color naturally blends with the surrounding background coloring. Great interest for fans of Victorian style is a carpeted floor. The red color of carpeting is well matched with the classic color of this style – light brown. Victorian style in the early stages of its development was in the form of quite bulky interior with a mass of bizarre patterns and ornaments. Furniture had a pretty massive look and lots of carved ornaments also. But over time, this style has become different with sense of proportion. Though the echoes of the old motifs can still be found.
Material and Texture. Texture plays an integral part in Asian style furniture. Surfaces can be smooth and shiny, because wood is either polished to perfection, painted, or lacquered. Surface interest is also created by using materials such as bamboo, paper, silver or gold leaf. Upholstery and rugs run the gamut from silk to jute and straw. This round cocktail table is from Hammary, and it combines some very interesting materials and textures that you find in Asian furniture. The deep dish top has a glass inset highlighted by a field of silver leaf. This is a take on an ancient art technique in which the underside of the glass is painted with an intricate pattern. The faux bamboo base has a soft black finish with a subtle red rub through.
Think of the draped, makeshift doorways of a busy outdoor markets or the costume of a belly dancer. Colorful fabrics are also a staple in Middle Eastern decor. You can implement your own colorful fabrics as sheer curtains, valences or used as a canopy to dress up a tall ceiling. Bronze or gold metal antique oil lamps, candle sticks or framed mirrors are a throwback to earlier Arabian eras and can give your home a more traditional Middle Eastern vibe. Select a set of intricately designed bronze candle holders or outdoor lanterns to add to the atmosphere. A cozy pallet draped in soft carpets and pillows can be a great addition to any home – specifically for dinner parties and other gatherings. Create a ring of cushions around a low table topped with a traditional hookah pipe for a relaxing experience that is truly Middle Eastern.
