Decorating with tapestries isn’t a new idea but one that I think deserves more attention. There are several reasons they’re worth revisiting and I found an online source with almost any style you can imagine at great prices. The uses are endless and you get a lot of bang for your buck, covering a ton of wall space.

They look great tacked up or framed if you want a more elevated style. (If custom isn’t an option, there are lots of DIY tapestry framing tutorials online.)
Another option is to wrap the tapestry around a canvas to give it more bulk.
Perfect for making a statement in the large area above a sofa or over a dining room sideboard.
Perk up all-white bedding by folding and draping one over a headboard.

Drape one over the back of a sofa to change up the look seasonally.
If you lean more toward neutrals and solids, tapestries are an inexpensive way to try pattern without a long term commitment.
The perfect solution for renters who don’t want to invest in removable wallpaper but want a large statement piece.
Recreate the the look of a vintage framed scarf with some of the smaller color block options.
When you’re finished with it on the wall, it can be repurposed as a table topper.
The selection on Society 6 is amazing–and you can order all of them in different sizes. I’m posting some of the ones that caught my eye, but you can type almost any word in the search bar followed by “tapestry” and find what you want.
