Current interior obsession: Macramé

Current interior obsession: Macramé

We’ve had bell-bottom pants and tie-die shirts, but the recent revival of this latest 70es trend actually got me excited – I’m talking about macramé, of course!

I love the intricate handiwork and the complex patterns created by knotting the strings of yarn. I love that no two pieces are the same, and that there are a myriad of ways to get creative. Macramé is a great way of introducing new and different textures and more natural materials into your home – it’s not surprising that macramé is often used in combination with plants, succulents, and cacti.

I have the biggest heart eyes for any combination of white macramé with natural, raw, untreated wood, such as pieces of driftwood. I haven’t gotten any macramé items in my house yet, but I’m actively browsing for some plant hangers or a little hanging shelf.

So here are some of my favorite finds from around the web (click images for links):

Are there any fellow macramé lovers out there? I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts and tips about DIY-ing macramé pieces, and of course if you know any artists here in Copenhagen or Denmark, I’m all ears – let me know in the comments!

  • I simply love that shelf! What a good idea, I dont think I would have ever combined it with other things than flowers. :) Thanks for inspiration!

  • I love love love all of this! I am currently in the middle of weaving a wall hanging myself. But it’s been trapped in my apartment for nearly a week. Our place was sealed off to clean up asbestos because we had a fire in the old house we lived in. :( I hope it doesn’t smell like smoke. But anyway, I have also been planning to learn macrame to make a wall hanging for our bedroom. My boyfriend has an Irish tapestry that is black and green, so I wanted to bring in some lighter decor to balance things out. We’re going to try and hang his tapestry like we’re not in college. We’ll see how that goes.

    • Oh, how cool! I don’t think I have the patience to learn how to make a big wall hanging – I might try with a smaller plant hanger in the fall :)
