The Illusion of High Ceilings: Gradient Curtains and Carpet by Thomas Eurlings
Designer Thomas Eurlings created a series of intriguing gradient curtains and carpets with a vertical fade which give the illusion of more indoor space. This is possible due to the ability of the designs to make the ceiling look more lighter and higher than it actually is. According to Thomas Eurlings, the gradient curtain and carpet were developed for the head office of Brainport Development in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. They are said to not only contribute to the illusion of extra height, but also to a better acoustics of the space, due to the silk fabric used for the curtain. For future projects, the colors and the fading will be adjusted by the designer according to the characteristics of each interior. We find this to be an interesting and helpful idea for small spaces. These type of perspective-changing decorative ideas do not just enhance the space, but bring a colorful, fresh touch as well.
