Old marine rope and vintage hardware lever make a for a cool, dramatic way to display a oiled canvas painting. This contrasts playfully with an ultra-modern chandelier and sleek Saarinen table.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Hang for effectAlways think carefully about your choice of frame and your approach to hanging when styling with art at home. It’s commonplace to conceal any fixtures, and while this will achieve a clean and sleek look and won’t detract from the work, if you have plenty of space, why not take a creative approach to hanging and make it a feature in itself. For example, the high ceiling of this dining room lends itself perfectly to a structural, tactile hanging feature. If you decide to go bold with your hanging technique, try to extend a common theme within the room by echoing materials or colours, for ultimate cohesion. Consider the impact that a structural hanging will have within the space, and speak to your framer about options, as once it’s framed, your piece could be rather heavy, requiring a load-bearing wall.
