Tassels are an exotic adornment for home decor and fashion, consisting of a bunch of cords fastened at one end. Tassels have been very popular as an accent to update home decor as these lavish tassels are a great accessory to spice up lamps, pillows, curtains and other home furnishings. They're useful for pulls on window shades, doors and ceiling fans and are taken strictly as a "decorator" item on doorknobs and draw-pulls. They are available in a variety of sizes, styles and colors. These can also bring flavor and elegance to a room's decor.

Using Tassels Since Centuries as Status Symbol

For centuries tassels have been used to indicate status and wealth in the furnishings or great houses and castles. These flowing embellishments were attached to clothing or uniforms of military officials and religious sects, depicting rank and status. Even today we see the use of tassels for status. For example, the graduation tassel attached to a mortar board. Besides this, tassels are used as decorative artworks. They have now a myriad of applications and styles.

Parts of a Tassel

A tassel consists of three main parts - the cord, the top and the skirt. The cord is used to suspend the tassel. It is pulled up through the center of the skirt and top and hold the tassel together. The top is usually a wooden shape, often called a finial, with a hole in the center. It is covered with yarn, painted, faux finished or decoupaged and slides down over the top of the skirt. The skirt is the fringe that hangs down from the top. The beauty of the tassel lies on the fringe.

Their style is principally displayed in the skirt or the fringes, the dangling part of a tassel. Some of the most popular designs of tassels are:

Beaded Tassels

Beaded tassels have beads hanging instead of the fine threads. In other words, the fringes are made of beads. These beads can be wood, glass, metal and they give a very sparkling appearance when added to to curtains, cushions, pelmets, throws, blinds, table runners and accessories. Beaded trimmings or beaded tassels are handcrafted giving each fringe a uniqueness and individual charm.

Bobble Fringe Tassels

Here the fringes are in the form of decorative pom poms which can be used on bed throws, curtains and blinds.

Cut Tassels

These style of tassels have each thread in the skirt cut for a loose, flowing effect.

Bullion Tassels

The fringes have looped or twisted ends and threads are not cut.

Combination Tassels

Here the style includes bullion cores with cut edges, giving a volume, and reducing tangling more effectively.

Molded Tassels

The wrapped head of a tassel is the mold, which is covered using the same threads or materials that form the skirt, while others may have a head of wood or porcelain that secures the skirt.
