Cambridge Strie Braids and Cords

Explore 100+ colors of tape trims and cords in the Cambridge Strie Braid from Samuel & Sons

 

While statement-making borders and fringes seem to garner all of the glory, especially in the social media spotlight,  it’s these hard-working basics—strie braids and cords—that designers rely on every day to get the job done.

 

Make no mistake, these basics are anything but. Be it ribbing, a sheen, or a dry hand or texture, each of these essentials, though plain at a glance, bring something significant to the table—or, more likely, a chair. They can transform a design, taking your windows, upholstery, pillows and walls from ordinary to extraordinary.

You don’t need pattern to pack a powerful punch with strie braids and cords.
With the colors of Cambridge and a designer’s eye, anything is possible. What they lack in pattern, these essentials make up for in versatility and their power to elevate a design in an instant.
