IKSEL’s tented rooms add a whimsical chic touch to any home or commercial interiors. Here is the full collection of IKSEL tented room wallpapers, including all colours and ceiling options available – Kubilai’s Tent, Ottoman Tent Pasha, and Ottoman Tent Mehmet.
These images are sourced from interior designers from around the world and featured in editorials over the past few years.

Kubilai’s Tent wallpaper from IKSEL takes any interior back to the circus tents of yesteryear. Muted tones, vintage grainy effect on the paper, and available in refined blue, green or beige colour options. Kubilai’s Tent design influence is taken from Abbaside Dynasty wainscoting. The IKSEL design team made it into an exotic tent which transforms a room into a chic camping fantasy.

These two Ottoman tent designs – Ottoman Tent Pasha & Ottoman Tent Mehmet – come from those used in 17th Century military campaigns.
The tents were ornamented inside, with the finest patchwork sewn onto the canvas. Whilst the soldiers slept on the rough, the Army Generals travelled in style, as these splendid tents attest.
