It’s back!! Macramé and weaving have been back on trend for awhile now and for good reason. It's a perfect way to bring visual interest and warmth into any neutral modern palette - not to mention great texture! My fingers are crossed that this throwback trend sticks around for a while because I just love incorporating it into my designs!
The creativity and the different interpretations of this hand craft/art is continually being elevated by the artists who work in the medium. I especially love how Rianne Zuijderduin creates some of the most beautiful and modern pieces of macramé art! You can follow her along on Instagram @teddyandwool
I often use macramé or woven fiber art as statement pieces in my designs. From large tapestry-like pieces to pillows with macramé accents to hanging macramé planters, if the space I am working in needs a textural or visual element, it's likely that some woven art is going to make an appearance! Like in one of my latest projects, I wanted to use this brass headboard, but felt it was too glam. So I softened it up by using macramé cotton cord to add to interest and warmth.
Here are some macramé pieces that I have been commissioned to create for homes, businesses and photoshoots!
I incorporated this woven fiber art piece into a recent interior design project in Cardiff by the Sea, California. I designed and staged the home that was a brand new construction.
These hanging planters are one of the focal points over at Isari Flower Studio in Solana Beach, California. These house a rotation of indoor plants and flower arrangements and often show up in styled shoots and wedding designs!
This Back Drop/ Room Divider/ Wall hanging was used for a modern baby shower photoshoot and now is owned by Sarah Neal. It is hanging in her floral studio, Brick and Laurel. I worked with a local artist - Amber Jo Peterson - to complete this project. She works as Lead Visual Designer over at Urban Outfitters in Encinitas Instagram Handle :: @amberjopeterson
With so many designers using macramé and woven fiber art (rad hotels like The Goodland in Santa Barbara and The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs have some pretty amazing pieces!), I think this design trend is here to stay!
