Wall Hangings with Modern Style

Wall hangings, especially those involving macrame, were a ’70s crafting craze. Officially “back”, but in a more minimalist, modern way, wall hangings are perfect for a range of interiors, from the retro to the Bohemian. In fact, an increasing number of design lovers who enjoy eclectic style are incorporating them into their spaces. Today we round up 10 of our favorites, from budget-friendly finds to pieces that are well worth the investment!…

Wall Hangings from Urban Outfitters

When it comes to retailers who offer wall hangings, Urban Outfitters has led the way. In fact, the brand often collaborates with artists to produce a wide selection of pieces that range from the metal to the macrame. The prices also vary, from wall hangings in the $20-$40 range to those priced well beyond $100. The bottom line: wall hangings are for everyone, and no brand has shouted that message from the rooftops quite like Urban Outfitters… [below: creations from Himo Art]
