Trend: Weave Wall Hangings


Macrame and weaves are back from the seventies, and how! Prepare yourself to see more of the artisan pieces in interior design coming season. In eastern and African cultures where handicrafts and artisan craftsmanship is more prevalent, it never left, but in the western cultures it died a silent death in the eighties. The current ethnic influences and DIY trend in home decor re-introduced the traditional folkloric art pieces, sometimes with a modern or sophisticated twist to it. Wall tapestry is back with a vengeance!

Mimi Jung makes beautiful chic weaves that pair well with any home decor style. She use minimalist patterns and neutral, calming colours.

How to style it in your decor

Weave wall hangings are like art pieces. You can hang them in any space: above a side table, on an accent wall, as a head board above your bed, or above a console as a focal point. Depending on the style of your space you can match the weave accordingly.
