Classic embroidery is the art of embellishing fabrics, but contemporary art takes the embroidery in interior decorating to the next level. Cross-stitch designs that decorate felt, wood, plastic or metal surfaces look innovative, surprising, and stylish. Sewed with strands of threads or colorful yarn the creative designs transform fabric home furnishings, wood furniture, lamp shades, floor carpets, and wall decorations creating stunning centerpieces for modern interior decorating.

Contemporary embroidery art makes use of various materials such as metal strips, wooden and plastic surfaces, adorning walls, furniture, and decorative accessories with beautiful ornaments. Not just fabrics look exclusive and elegant with embroidered designs, but also wooden, plastic and metal items turn into masterpieces which enhance modern interiors. Metal mesh and perforated wooden surfaces are excellent materials for cross-stitch designs.
