It’s the macramé resurgence! 70’s design is racing into the spotlight and macramé is a big part of this retro style. Whether you buy it or get crafty and try DIY, macramé is back in a big way! Macramé is a type of art completely different from what we usually see. Its handmade and organic feel are the perfect tool to soften any space and create a calm and peaceful environment. The rejuvenation of macramé art was kickstarted on Pinterest and Instagram, where so many artists and stylists go to share their work. Together we are going to walk through all the different styles of macramé and find the most inspirational macramé artists. The first step on our journey is fringes.
Like with any piece of art, size matters. The benefit (and struggle) of macramé is the length that fringes provide. A long, thin piece can be paired with one or two other pieces of art to balance out the overall size. Making bundles like this works with any oddly shaped pieces or art. If it doesn’t look quite right in the space alone, find something that complements it and play around with the layout! @lejiazorz has used height to compose multiple pieces of art and accessories into one complementary bundle.
