I don’t know about the situation in other parts of the world, but here in Sweden the demand for tassels is huge. The good ‘ol curtain tiebacks. To be used and placed just anywhere in the home. The reason is a Swedish Hollywood-wife called Maria Montazami (from the TV show) – she is crazy for tassels (she’s got I think 86 of them, all blending into her interiors). And so it spread…. Slowly but surely. Blame her, or blame the Swedish soul for being so easily led ;) but the popularity is a fact. And mind you, this is an underground movement, a grassroot thing, hitherto unacknowledged by the established interior design circles.
