Even though it’s not technically mid-century and qualifies more as an iconic 70s accessory, macrame is coming back in a modern fashion and is gorgeous.  From Remodelista, check out these wall hangings. These give a head nod back a few decades while remaining completely modern and fresh. This goes on my ‘want-it-now’ list.

Textile artist Sally England takes macramé to a new level with her hand-knotted ceiling-to-floor hangings.

England, who is based in Portland, Oregon, consults vintage macramé books from thrift stores for ideas; she applies techniques from the past to her own hand-knotted pieces, which have a distinctly modern appeal. England’s oversized pieces can serve as room dividers, wall decor, or even as headboards (our preference). For more information, visit Sally England; her pieces can be ordered through Relish. in Portland; England also accepts private commissions.
