31 Days of French-Inspired Style Day 27: Tassels

Tassels are a great way to add a little French flair to your decor. The French may not have invented the tassel, but I think they certainly perfected it. The tassel rose to great popularity in 17th century France, where it became a symbol of wealth, power, and status.

Today, we also love tassels in our home decor.

They can hang from curtain tie backs…..


They look fabulous hanging from a key in an armoire or dresser lock (this is my favorite place to hang them)….



So pretty hanging from dining room chairs…



They can be used to dress up a lamp…

So, what are tassels used for? Well, they’re not used for anything! The same way that floral arrangements and paintings are not used for anything. They’re simply a fun little French-inspired way to dress up our homes.

See you tomorrow!
