Hanging tapestries is not difficult but hanging them to maximum effect may take a little experimentation. Over three years ago we wrote a blog post about the steps involved in hanging a tapestry so this need not be repeated here. Less mechanical and more artistic is the positioning and the use of supplemental materials to create the required drama. In medieval times wall tapestries were status symbols and this can be true today since everyone has framed prints but very few have a woven tapestry. With many homes today having hardwood floors and large windows it is necessary to soften the look and the sound of our rooms: tapestries are ideal for both purposes. Another past blog post discussed display ideas for tapestries in the home and I want to expand upon this with our wall tapestries gallery of ideas from our other website. These illustrate a variety of tapestries in varying settings – living rooms, dining rooms, staircases, bedrooms and even a bathroom. I have scattered a few such images throughout this post but do look at the link above to see a further selection (none being shown here).
