Modern tapestries ensure comfort in the room: Your walls will look so beautiful with them!

It’s no secret that carpets don’t just belong on the floor. Woven and hand-knotted pictures have adorned our walls for centuries. The modern wall hangings, however, have little to do with the wall art from the past. Modern tapestries are made of light fabrics and are mostly characterized by geometric patterns and abstract motifs. A modern style tapestry can decorate the walls in any room. Whether in the bedroom, living room or hallway – these stylish wall hangings always create a cozy atmosphere that invites you to linger.

The tapestries then and now

The woven picture, also called tapestry, has a long tradition that was still known in ancient Egypt and Persia. Tapestry making was a highly valued craftsmanship at the time, and the finished pieces were labeled real treasures. The tapestry was not purely decorative. It was particularly popular for its practical function of covering drafty corners and thus storing heat in rooms.

During the Renaissance in Europe, tapestries were very popular. They were considered a sign of high social status and especially adorned the walls of rich families. In Eastern countries, too, the kilim was a real status symbol and the carpets (for both the floor and the wall) were considered luxury goods.

One look at the trade shows over the past couple of years is enough to see that modern tapestries are gaining popularity again. In contrast to the opulently decorated, hand-made wall hangings from the past, the modern variants are more abstract and give a certain lightness. Macramees are just as popular and are perfect as small accents in the room. They are usually knotted from light-colored strings and are great wall decorations for rooms in a Scandinavian or Boho style.

Another nice variant of the modern tapestries are cloths that are printed with beautiful patterns or tie-dye. These give the room a very special charm and can be wonderfully combined with fairy lights in children’s and teenagers’ rooms.

Just like the classic carpet for the floor, the tapestries are made in different sizes. So you can decide for yourself whether you want to decorate the whole wall with it, or only part of it. Now we would like to show you a few great examples of furnishing with a tapestry in a modern look. Because that is exactly the decoration that your walls need.

Tapestries are often referred to as carpets that are just too beautiful for the floor. They can completely change the effect of the room and should be selected with care. For example, if you opt for a large-format tapestry, you should expect the room to be spacious and characterized by clear lines. Only in this way can the wall hanging come into its own.

The tapestry is usually more eye-catching than a mural. Therefore, he should stand for himself and have no opponents. An exception is allowed in cases when the tapestry is small and is paired with a similar curtain to compensate. In the picture gallery we have put together a few inspirations for furnishing with tapestries and hangings.

In addition to the living room, the bedroom is also a perfect place to showcase a beautiful tapestry. The wall hanging can either be attached over the headboard or on the side wall. This not only looks beautiful, but also stores the heat in the room. So put an end to the cold wall next to the bed!

The beautiful motifs on the wall also create a relaxed atmosphere in the room. The boho style, for example, is totally hip right now. It exudes a certain lightness and is therefore extremely popular, especially in the bedroom. The boho-chic style can be nicely complemented by modern tapestries. Motifs such as mandalas are just perfect for this.

Fairy lights are a great addition to the boho-look tapestry. They can either be hung above or directly behind to create beautiful plays of light. So that the lights come into their own, the boho tapestry should not be too thick. Tapestries made from light fabrics, such as printed cloths, are best for this effect.
