If you’ve scrolled through the AT house calls lately, you might have noticed a certain woven material popping up more and more. (If you’re as big of a fan of Bravo’s “Project Runway” as I am, you’ll also know that this woven look was also a design signature of finalist Coral Castillo.) No, it’s not cane, wicker, or rattan. It’s macramé.

What’s old is new again, and just like with cane, wicker, and rattan, this hand-knotted ’70s look is taking living rooms by storm. Fruit holders and plant pot hangers have been making appearances in boho-style homes for some time now, but there’s a broader trend bubbling up with full-fledged curtains, blankets, tablecloths, and tapestries.

San Diego resident Sara Wilczynska and her wife used macramé accents in their meditation room. “The previous owners had a big dining table in this part of the apartment, but we decided to convert it to a meditation and relaxation space,” Sara said in her house call. “We hung a hammock, added a foldable floor cushion and a hand-woven Peruvian rug, and we built our own altar with statuettes and other elements collected during our various travels.”

Their macramé curtain helps to define the area while still maintaining an airy feel and letting plenty of light from the dining room into the living area behind it.

San Francisco dweller Katherine King used macramé curtains to cover windows in her space as well as to create a soft barrier between rooms, like with the kitchen and living room shown above.

King makes the curtains as well as knotted hangers for her plants by hand. Her macramé pieces are totally impressive, especially given that creating your own macramé takes nimble fingers — not to mention hours and hours of work.

If you’d rather buy than DIY, plenty of under-$30 macramé finds are available on Etsy in particular, whether you’re looking for a large-scale textile or a smaller woven accent. Shop 10 of my favorites below, or browse to get inspired for ways to incorporate macramé into your space.
