The end result is often very faithful to the original artists
An Enduring Allure Because of Velvet Fabric these centuries-old designs are enjoying a renewed prominence and are once again making their way into the homes of taste conscious art lovers. From the vivid colors of medieval tapestries, to the exoticism of Eastern schools of weaving, traditional tapestry designs often surprise modern art lovers with their attention to detail, their ability to capture emotion and their exploration of timeless themes such as love and romance.
Given the historical importance of these works of art some of the current productions available are fastidious copies of the originals. From blankets for warmth, to elaborate woven fabrics for commerce, they have been at the very center of human life.Since antiquity people have used textiles for all range of purposes. The end result is often very faithful to the original artists' vision, with all the durability and appeal of modern fabrics. More importantly for the first time we see tapestry wall hangings widely appreciated as works of art, rather than just practical pieces of home furnishing.
Every tapestry, because of the individuality of the weaving process, is a unique work of art unlike any other. Tapestries and wall hangings have long been one of the most accomplished forms of this art, having a history dating back millennia, and artists from almost all cultures have contributed some form of textile wall art. This combination of artistic excellence and history writ large is proving irresistible to many art lovers who yearn for more depth in their home decor choices

Dwellings now restored and converted to businesse
Thankfully that neglect, as in most of Warren County, has kept much of its historic fabric intact and over the past 20 years, building owners have been peeling off old aluminum siding to reveal stunning architecture. Even places farther a field like Bucks and Pike Counties in Pennsylvania and Sullivan County in New York get more press.
When people head out from New York and surrounding environs in search of weekend retreats, invariably they end up in western Connecticut, the Hudson River Valley, the Catskills and other upstate New York areas, the Jersey Shore, and the Hamptons. And to be sure, some of Warren's eastern border towns have picked up developments and transplants from these ever more unaffordable neighboring areas.
As testament to Warren County's less than stellar reputation, the sign welcoming visitors into its county seat describes Victorian Belvidere as "New Jersey's best kept secret". However, the town is committed to building its own museum and has plans already in the works. Progress had been slow, but now there are several highly regarded restaurants in the restored downtown as well as antique shops and several specialty stores. P'burg, as it is known by locals, is extremely convenient as Routes 78 and 22 run just outside of town as does the express bus to Manhattan, which stops at the Phillipsburg Mall. Most of the grand homes have already been restored and there is a great sense of pride in this small close-knit community
There are several plans to transform Phillipsburg including the redevelopment of its underutilized waterfront into a residential neighborhood, with construction set to start in 2006, and the repurposing of a vacant industrial park into a new commerce center. Hope is a one-traffic light crossroads town, founded in the 18th century by a group of Moravians who left an impressive collection of stone dwellings now restored and converted to businesses and residences. Just west of Hope and Blairstown, outdoor activities exist in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area which includes part of the Appalachian Trail, Millbrook, a recreated 19th century village, and Peters Valley, an artists colony which offers regular shows and exhibits. Think Hoboken New Jersey or Hudson New York before gentrification.
Today, locals have bought and restored many of its buildings and, indicative of its burgeoning upscale nature, two vineyards, a winery, an antique store, and an alpaca farm have set up shop in the hamlet. Sadly, legislation to provide the funding to make it happen has been stalled and appears unlikely.
