Velvet Tapestry For Sale on 1stDibs

With a vast inventory of beautiful furniture at 1stDibs, we’ve got just the velvet tapestry you’re looking for. Each velvet tapestry for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using fabric, velvet and silk. Whether you’re looking for an older or newer velvet tapestry, there are earlier versions available from the 18th Century and newer variations made as recently as the 20th Century. A velvet tapestry is a generally popular piece of furniture, but those created in Baroque, Regency and Mid-Century Modern styles are sought with frequency. You’ll likely find more than one velvet tapestry that is appealing in its simplicity, but Atelier Lam, Pierre Olofsson and antique textiles galleries produced versions that are worth a look. A large velvet tapestry can prove too imposing for some spaces, so the smaller velvet tapestry available at 1stDibs — each spanning 1 in width — may make for a better choice.

How Much is a Velvet Tapestry?

A velvet tapestry can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price 1stDibs is $1,537, while the lowest priced sells for $145 and the highest can go for as much as $42,000.

Finding the Right Tapestries for You

Whether you hang them behind your bed as a dazzling alternative to a headboard or over the sofa as a large-scale focal point in the living room, vintage tapestries can introduce an array of textures and colors to any space in your home.

Woven wall hangings haven’t consistently enjoyed the popularity or earned the highbrow status that other types of wall decorations have over the years, at least not since the 1970s, which was somewhat of a heyday for tapestries. Today, however, these tactile works of art are seeing a renaissance, as modern weavers are forging new paths in the medium while the demand for antique and vintage tapestries continues to grow.

“We are drawn to texture in environments, and we see tapestries as a subtle layer of soft ornament,” says Lauren Larson of the New York design duo Material Lust. Indeed, and a lot of opportunity comes along when decorating with this distinctive brand of soft ornament.

Think of wall hangings as paintings created by hand with fabric instead of oil or watercolors. If you’re not simply securing your treasure to a wall with nails, pushpins or Velcro, tapestries can be stretched over a frame, used to create a canopy in a cozy living-room corner, hung from a rod or placed inside a shadowbox. And because this kind of textile art is hundreds of years old, options abound with respect to subjects and designs.

For richly detailed depictions of landscapes and garden scenes, look to antique Chinese tapestries and Japanese tapestries. Aubusson tapestries are ornate wall hangings manufactured in central France that are also characterized by romantic portrayals of nature. For weavers of mid-century modern tapestries, as well as those working in textile arts today, the styles and subject matter are too numerous to mention, with artists exploring experimental shapes, bold colors and provocative abstract designs.

Antique, new and vintage tapestries can make a room feel warm and welcoming — find yours on 1stDibs now.
