Can I have more Canvas?

If I could have a lot more canvas in my life I would. Canvas gives you that ‘I care about not wanting to care’ finish to your interior – thanks to its amazing durability. Rough it up and use it well to give it extra military coolness.

I recommend choosing pieces that have fraying edges and then being extra tough on them to intensify the look (as seen in some images in this article). Or if it is vintage – leave on the old stickers/imprints. Combine with tan leather for a beautiful aesthetic.

Tip: How to tackle stains on canvas – scrub canvas with water and mild soap. Treat any stubborn stains with bicarbonate of soda. Leave on the canvas for 5 minutes, then rinse off.
