We Decorate The Hamptons

Currently we are seeing a big trend for textured fabrics, and what could be more organic and texture filled than basic burlap. Originally used for potato sacking, this versatile fabric is now all the rage for interior accents and even upholstery.
Here are some examples of how to use burlap in your home.
all available from English County Antiques
