Vintage style bedrooms are becoming more and more trendy thanks to designers like Rachel Ashwell who popularized the term shabby chic in the 1980s. If you‵re planning to incorporate this style in your bedroom space, here are the most important things you need to know about this wonderful type of bedding.
In 1941 the first patent was issued for a polyester fiber initially named Terylene or Dacron. Nylon fabric was a precursor but was inferior in resilience and toughness. So in the late 1930‵s there was an interest to find new synthetic material to exceed the qualities of nylon. Thus emerged the new Dacron material.
Whinfield began searching for other alternatives to nylon along with his assistant, James Tennant Dickson, late in the 1930‵s. They discovered a way to blend ethylene glythol and terephthalic acid and condense them down to make this new material that could be turned into fibers. They patented their new find in 1941, but there was a war going on at the time and their patent wasn‵t made public until 1946 because of secrecy wartime restrictions. For the work of Whinfield, the University of York has honored him by naming their library in their Department of Chemistry after him in his memory.
Purchasing décor to match your bedding can be a ton of fun and super cheap too. Shopping in thrift stores and at garage sales you can almost always find well worn items that complement this style perfectly. And of course online there are many brand new ones that are made to look old, for example, mirrors, frames, tables, etc. Unlike other themes, with shabby chic mixing and matching looks fabulous.
