Everything You Need to Know Before Stocking Up on Sequins

If you still haven’t heard, sequin is going to make a major comeback in spring 2019. Whether or not you find it difficult to work this shimmery fabric into your décor without making it tacky, reading this short article won’t hurt – here’s everything you need to know before stocking up on sequined accessories.

Who Was the First Sequin Fashionista?

Despite the common belief that sequin rounds were invented somewhere in the 20th century, their history is longer than you can imagine. In fact, modern sequins go back to the ancient tradition of sewing coins onto garments, which worked as a symbol of status, a means of warding off evil spirits, and a precautionary measure to keep “cash” close to the body. However, by the 17th century, coins had been replaced by the metal discs to serve a purely decorative function. Eventually, it swept the globe in the 1920th after the discovery of King Tut’s tomb where the mummified body was found draped in garments covered with “gold sequin-like discs”. Since then, sequins have spanned a myriad of fashion genres.

Is it a Home Décor Taboo?

Just because there’re no parties on the horizon doesn’t mean that you have to ignore that inner itch to surround yourself with sparkly things – especially when it comes to decorating your personal space. There’re plenty of contemporary ways of weaving sequins into your home décor. For example, it’s recommended to use sequined chevron fabrics, which are both modern and subtle. Alternatively, you can mix large sequins with the tiny ones – thus, our Payette sequin curtain coupled with our Duchess sequins (or mirror foil tulle) on the throw pillow will really tie the décor together.

If tiny pops of sparkle do not tickle your fancy, you can let these shimmering guys take the center stage by adding a large sequined centerpiece or make a sequin surface an unexpected detail (a kitchen backsplash, for instance). To give your room the boost of Hollywood glamour, you can use gold sequins along with other gold accents, such as our gold props and columns. You can also surround your sequin accent with natural elements, Morrocan patterns, or neutral tones. Whichever strategy delights your inner “self”, stop by our online store where you’ll find a huge variety of sequin fabrics, curtains, and other sparkly goodies from eFavormart!
