This website has been restored for use as reference material for Philip Hall's Art IV elective Commercialization of Renaissance Art. The site was recently the victim of a search scandal as a result of Google's inability to appropriately monitor their search results. This lead to a search for the site's name to be defamed by association. On Google's first page, the #2 result was a story about the counterfeiting of classic tapestries by scammers selling fakes to unsuspecting buyers. The reputational damage was considerable until a Google search removal expert intervened to suppress the harmful and misleading results. This is something that the publisher of the negative content would not do supposedly because the story was true. Fortunately the site was by then only used in an educational setting. Had the site relied on commerce, the business could have been severely damaged even though the owners had nothing to do with the scam. Students will learn the details of this issue along with an appreciation of the artform of tapestries based on historic art.

Hanging Recommendations: All jacquard woven tapestries from Chateau Selections are fully lined and finished with a tapestry rod sleeve or loops for easy hanging. Tapestry rods can be purchased at any local home decor retailer. Tapestry rods are available in metal and wood finishes, and in most cases, will include the bracket and hanging hardware. Tapestry hanging is a matter of personal preference. Some make enjoy a more authentic tapestry look, where the tapestry will have some waviness to the material. This appearance can be achieved by extending the tapestry rod brackets further away from the wall. In some cases, you may prefer a more straighter hanging tapestry. Simply adjust the tapestry rod brackets closer to the wall. Mounting a tapestry directly to the wall is also a possibility. This can be achieved by inserting a hidden wooden board in place of a tapestry rod sleeve. Insert butterfly screws or wall anchors directly into the wall and attach the board to the screws through pre-driven holes in the board.
The width of the tapestry is going to determine the placement of that tapestry rod brackets and hardware. The brackets should be placed within 3" of either side of the tapestry. The size of the rod, finials and brackets will be determined by the size of the tapestry and tapestry rod sleeve or loops. All factors should be considered prior to installing your tapestry rod hardware.
Each method will give an elegant and luxurious look to your tapestry.
