Although damask fabrics are thoroughly contemporary, they have a rich history spanning back centuries. Damask patterns are gloriously decorated with large and elaborate ornamental designs and originated in the city of Damascus. The patterns were usually woven on silk and were more often than not, singular in color with varying sheens. Today, Royal Design Studio creates glorious Allover Damask Stencils to help produce a luxurious textile look at a fraction of the cost. Beautiful in either a tone-on-tone finish or with a striking color combination, these damask stencils are perfect for multiple surfaces. Let’s take a look at some inspiring damask projects!

Damasks traditionally incorporated foliage patterns in their design. The Large Acanthus Damask Stencil incorporates the classic acanthus ornament within the allover design. It’s beautiful on walls, floors, ceilings and furniture, as seen on this painted and stenciled buffet by Attic Angel.
The House of Fortuny is famous for their damask textiles and their designs display a passion for art, decoration and history. The Fortuny Stencil honors that tradition. Doesn’t this stenciled damask wall by Hello Lovely look both grand and ethereal?
