The gap between the catwalk and home decor companies is closing in quickly, and it often starts with fashion. Have you ever noticed how apparel trends seem to mesh with our home interior choices? You’re not alone. If you spend any time on Pinterest or Instagram, you’ll be able to quickly tell how important home décor has become, and it’s often inspired by fashion.
According to the Washington Post, dorm-focused design firms and outlets like Tapestry Girls have come about because "the same baby boomers who slapped a Bob Marley poster on the dorm wall and called it a day are now willing to pay big bucks for coordinating duvets, pillows curtains, rugs and other symbols of a well-appointed dorm for their children," which often sets them back as much as $5,000.
This is likely because people care more now about their living space than ever before, and want to show off their individual styles. We wear intricate patterns and unique designs on our bodies. Frankly, why should our walls and home furnishings be any different?
Enter Tapestry Girls: the largest United States-based tapestry supplier. The company has hundreds of tapestry designs and sells its products direct to consumers, as well as to wholesale customers like Etsy, Redbubble, Society6, Amazon, and Walmart. “Fashion is the number one thing that inspires our designs,” commented Kyle Leighton, CEO of Tapestry Girls. “We pay a great deal of attention to the fashion industry, and whatever trends are taking shape often dictates how our designs look.” With over 1,000 product styles and a massive social media following, it’s safe to say Tapestry Girls has officially mastered the intersection between fashion and decoration.

There's a small leap from fashion trends to room decor trends—many credit social media for the increased crossover between these two different art forms, including Leighton.
“If you ever search Tapestry Girls on social media, our products are literally everywhere,” explained Leighton. “They probably don’t even realize it, but the way our customers stylize our products, and share them for the world to see, not only inspires us, but it pushes the industry forward, too.”
