Accessories: Macrame Wall Hangings by Sally England in Portland, Oregon

January 12, 2012 4:30 PM

BY Sarah Lonsdale

Textile artist Sally England takes macramé to a new level with her hand-knotted ceiling-to-floor hangings.

England, who is based in Portland, Oregon, consults vintage macramé books from thrift stores for ideas; she applies techniques from the past to her own hand-knotted pieces, which have a distinctly modern appeal. England’s oversized pieces can serve as room dividers, wall decor, or even as headboards (our preference). For more information, visit Sally England; her pieces can be ordered through Relish. in Portland; England also accepts private commissions.
