Gorgeous Geometric Wall Hangings Give Macramé a Modern Makeover

Artist Rianne Zuijderduin’s dreamy macramé creations blur the line between bohemian simplicity and polished elegance. From large-scale wall hangings to petite plant holders, the Netherlands-based artist presents a contemporary twist on the classic craft.

Zuijderduin’s distinctively geometric macramé collection is as diverse as it is beautiful. Unlike knit or woven textiles, macramé is fabricated by meticulously knotting cords into intricate patterns, resulting in exquisitely detailed designs and a lovingly handmade aesthetic. Zuijderduin’s tapestries offer a creative alternative to typical wall décor, while her chic, suspended plant holders bring a modern feel to any room. Though most of her pieces simply retain the cords’ neutral and natural tones, some are dip-dyed with bright pops of color. Others even feature fun materials like beads and wool. The possibilities are endless!

Zuijderduin showcases much of her art on Instagram, where you can find interior installation shots (often featuring her beloved bunnies) and gorgeous details of her work. She also sells her exquisite work through her Teddy & Wool Etsy shop.
