Ever noticed how many gorgeous photos now include some kind of 1960s or 1970s wallhanging. Typically metal and often in an aged gold finish, they are starting to replace the ubiquitous art wall as form of wall decoration (darn, just when my art wall was filling out). With a vintage wall hanging like the one above, all you need is one great piece, or at times a collection of smaller pieces (third shot seen below) to beautifully dress your wall.
I love this shot of the two pieces of Syroco (highly-collectable pieces made from a composite of wood flour, waxes and resins, moulded then painted, introduced by the SYRacuse ORnamental COmpany founded in the 1890s in New York State). It really shows their delicate and quirky charm. And I also like having the opportunity to show how cute they look in situ. We’ve had some in our store and while people loved them, they seemed confused as to how to use them. Well, here you go, this is what you do, and with pieces just like ours below. Easy peasy.
