Bohemian Tapestries & Bedspreads
For those with the heart of a hippie and the soul of a gypsy, our Bohemian style textiles are for you. Like a good piece of artwork, textiles can really make the décor in your home a unique Bohemian experience. The Bohemian style is easy to achieve in most spaces because it’s all about the layering. The key is bright colors and bold designs using primitive textiles that offer romantic detail.
Bohemian tapestry design dates back to 14th century Germany where it was initially developed in the court of Charles IV, the Holy Roman Emperor in Prague. For a brief period, Charkas IV’s court became the leading force in European Art development. Much of the development of the Bohemian style of art was developed in Italy and is said to have spread north past the Alps, influencing French artists in part through a colony of Italian artists which was attached to the Papal Court at Avignon. These early works of Bohemian home décor were displayed in the residence in that Papal Court throughout the 1330s and 1340s. The home displaying these works was that of Simone Martini, a Sienese precursor of the style. Therefore, Republican Siena held a huge influence over the early development of the Bohemian style of artwork, tapestries, and bedspreads.
Bohemian styles, particularly Bohemian textiles such as Bohemian bedspreads, Bohemian table linens, Bohemian curtains, and other Bohemian style fabrics are also oftentimes referred to as "hippie style." in modern culture. The word "Bohemian" is derived from the French word referring to gypsies. It also denotes a socially unconventional person, especially one who is involved in the arts.
