The best tapestries

A tapestry makes a room more interesting by adding color, texture, and personality. They’re more versatile than wallpaper or paint, and are easy to install and take down. Take a look at our favorite tapestries to help you choose the best one for your home.

The first key element to look at when you’re considering buying a tapestry is design. Popular options include patterns like mandalas, tropical leaves, and classic stripes. Other options include graphic prints like photographs, text, or artwork. The second element is size — make sure your tapestry fits the wall you want to decorate. Lastly, consider material. If a tapestry is made of heavier material, note that mounting it might include more hardware instead of simple pins or tape. Let’s take a close look at our picks.
