What's old is new again. If you haven't noticed, 1970's-era macrame has been back in vogue, a fact that makes me wish I'd inherited the hanging planters I always knew growing up in my grandparents' condo. But could there be more to borrow from the disco era than just macrame? The designers of these thoroughly modern rooms definitely think so.
