10 of the best macrame pieces for the home

Not just a fabulously diverse art form, modern macramé lends instant softness and texture to a room

They say that all good things come back in fashion and this is absolutely the case here. Macramé – the art of decorative knotting – has come a long way since the coarse twine and shiny beads of the 1970s. We’re now seeing all sorts of materials being used, in a variety of colours, textures and layers. These handmade creations are a great way to add texture to any room in the house. There are plenty of local creatives making these beauties but if you’re good with your hands, why not give it a go yourself?
