What are Soft Furnishings?

Soft Furnishings is a broad term which actually stands for quite a large number of different things. Boiled down to the basics though, you can consider Soft Furnishings to be all of those components which accentuate your home's interior.

Soft furnishings can add a lot to a room; detail, colour, texture, comfort and warmth can all be provided depending on the selection of fabrics and the types used. Ultimately, soft furnishings are the cherry on top of the cake; The extras that improve the whole experience.

At WB Jamieson, we class the following items as Soft Furnishing; From curtains, blinds, pillows and cushions, to throws, rugs, and even wallpaper. We feel that the addition of these items truly transforms a house into a home, make living more comfortable and easy and adding a particular ambience to a space.

Soft furnishings are vital in their role to provide decoration. The term itself developed with the increasing use of soft material found in living rooms, swathes of drapery and fabric which added an element of visual beauty as well as adding physical comfort. The word 'Soft' itself is indicative of the materials used; foam, cloth, wadding and padding.

Why add Soft Furnishings to your home?

Our homes have always been our personal space. A space that originally only had one purpose. To provide shelter. Our homes have come to mean much more than that, and today, the home is an extension of ourselves. A place where we come to relax, live, and express ourselves through our decoration. Soft Furnishings provide this. 

Soft Furnishings:

  • Elevates the aesthetic of furniture, dresses windows or walls.
  • Provide relaxation and physical comfort.
  • Improve or update a room in an economical way by adding new colours, textures or forms.
  • Personalise your space with something that is tailored to your specification 
  • Provide detail or points to draw the eye.
