How to hang an antique tapestry

Whether you’re looking for an antique tapestry to work as a featured piece of art, or one to hang in a room full of other antiques, there are many ways to style a tapestry within established themes in your home.

Nails are the easiest way to hang a tapestry. Use the thinnest possible to ensure holes don't appear in your bespoke masterpiece. For a classic drape, use nails at the top corners of the tapestry. For a larger, heavier tapestry, it's prudent to attach more nails across the top of your piece. Alternatively, you can hang your tapestry from a rod before attaching it to your wall.

Simple framed tapestries can be the easiest to style. These tend to be smaller, and they can be placed anywhere from an antique side table to a whole gallery wall dedicated to your collection of antique art.

Antique tapestries UK

Antique tapestries in the UK were originally created to keep out the draughts in stone houses. They quickly became a must for every home and grew from simple wool to colourful designs and patterns. Eventually, these antique tapestries in the U.K. were created in order to tell stories of battles, love or family history. Each has its own original story to tell and offers something unique. They were created before mass production was even invented and each shows the careful markings of its maker. Bring this sense of history and storytelling into your home when you buy one of our antique tapestries. Can’t find exactly what you’re looking for?
