We've been predicting the resurgence of macramé in home decor for awhile, and now that it's huge in the fashion world, we're figuring its time has come. The technique of knotting string or yarn has fallen in and out of popularity since the 1800s, but these modern examples of macramé have come a long way from grandma's living room.
