Portiere Style Tapestries

Le Point D'Eau - Cheval and Flamant Rose Wall Tapestries

Le Point D'Eau - Cheval and Flamant Rose Wall Tapestries

These beautiful French Portiere tapestries are taken from the  famous “Tentures Des Indes” series of 8 tapestries woven during the 17th and 18th centuries. The original artwork was designed by Albert Eckhout.  LePoint D’Eau tapestries are just a few of the popular portiere style wall hangings available today.

Portiere style tapestries were used to cover doorways back in the middle ages.  The narrow widths and long lengths were for practical use.  Today, many home decorators choose portiere style wall hangings  for decorative purposes such as foyer areas, large wall spaces with narrow widths, or for just a sectional wall area.  Portiere tapestries come in singles or matching pairs.
