Textiles and fiber art help bring texture into your space. It’s a style of art that has uniquely cozy vibes. And it’s becoming available in more and more different styles.
In my home, we have a quilt hung up in our living room that’s right next to the kitchen. That green couch below it is a landing spot for us all of the time. I experience a little bit of joy every time I see the quilt. I love how it takes up the whole wall and has bright colors that work with our space. It also has a softness and a sense of history that I really love.
This post is all about woven wall decor. Let’s talk more about all of the different types of textile art that you can have in your home, whatever your style is.
What is woven wall decor?
This is a great question! A lot of the time woven wall decor refers to a much broader range of art than you may realize. Macrame wall hangings and other types of the eclectic, bohemian style woven wall decor may come to mind first. But you may be surprised to learn that there are a lot of other kinds of woven wall decor and fiber art that look stylistically and aesthetically different.
When it comes down to definitions, woven wall decor can be anything that is woven together to make a decorative piece or work of art. So that’s pretty broad! And people, from DIYers in the craft community to artists creating fine art, are pushing the boundaries more and more of what woven wall decor and fiber art can be. With new materials and techniques being introduced in fiber art, it is an up and coming style that is redefining fine art.
With these new styles gaining popularity, there is a much broader variety of textiles and woven wall hangings that you can find for your home. No matter what your style is, there is something for you. This was definitely not always the case, and it’s really exciting to see!
Why is woven wall decor getting so popular?
I wrote a post all about fiber art and textiles and why they are the next big trend. That post talks a lot more about this topic. You can read it here!
The quick and dirty summary is that artists are responsible for this shift. More and more artists are creating so many different styles of fiber art. That means that more people are loving it and finding art that works with their style.
There’s something so captivating about this style of art. I think that a big part of why it is so captivating is a combination of two things. Fiber art is being pushed in new ways, which makes it feel edgy and intriguing, and it is made of soft, cozy materials. You get a completely unique combination of edgy and cozy with so much new fiber art. Especially tufted art has that effect. I have boards on Pinterest filled with textile artwork, so make sure to check those out if you want to see more of what this art can look like.
The wide array of fiber art that I mentioned earlier is definitely a catalyst for the increase in demand for textiles and fiber art. I love finding artists who make fiber art, and I feel like I’m constantly learning about new artists. It’s really cool to learn about the different techniques different artists use. And even artists who use the same techniques can have really different styles.
Is all woven wall decor the same?
This might be getting a little bit redundant at this point, but I think it’s important to reiterate. The answer is no! Not all woven wall decor is the same. Lucky for us, there are so many different types of woven wall decor and other fiber art and textiles that you can hang on your walls. It’s fun to explore what you like most.
There is a huge range of this kind of art too, just like there can be with almost any art. From crafting and DIYs to professional artists who create fine art using these materials, there is a lot of different fiber art out there that has been made using a variety of methods.
Tufted art may be something that you’ve never heard of before! And that is totally normal. Tufting is a technique used for weaving thread and it creates texture that way. The image in the pin above is an example of tufted art.
How does it look in your space?
It is so critical to see examples of different woven wall decor in beautifully designed spaces. That’s what we are all about at Garland Collections – showing you the best art and beautiful interior design together. You wouldn’t think that it’s so hard to find that combination, but it is.
There is a lot to consider when it comes to having woven wall hangings in your space. You have to decide what type of fiber art you are most drawn to.
You also have to decide where that kind of art would fit into your space.
Here are some examples of how woven wall decor can look in your space:
This is an example for minimalist vibes. I love this woven wall hanging because it is black and white, but it still is textural. With the black lines and the fringe at the bottom, there is contrast in this piece that is pleasing to the eye.
This is an example of a more eclectic woven wall hanging. The colors and the rustic quality of this raw fabric hanging on the wall is very appealing and has a natural feel. I especially love how the warm reds and oranges in the work of art resonate with the brown wood in the area around it. This piece is so warm and inviting!
This is an example of a gallery wall made from framed textile art. And I love how it balances color and pattern in such a playful way. Framing fabric pieces or other woven wall art is a great way to display fiber art on your wall. Often, I think that people forget that you can frame more than just photos and paper! You can frame textiles, too.
This is an example of a more abstract quilt that focuses on the primary colors – red, blue, and yellow. Especially paired with the piece of furniture below, it gives a mid-century modern vibe. I am a big fan of these abstract quilts! I think they’re so fun.
This is an example of how neutral quilts can add a lot of texture and elegance if you frame a pair of quilt fragments and stack them on together on the wall. I love how versatile these are – you could fit them in with so many different design styles and they would look really good.
Those are all of the examples for this blog post, but you can always find more art and design inspiration on the Garland Collections Pinterest! You also are more than welcome to leave a comment below if you have a question or request for a future blog post.
