Until recently, the words ‘wall hanging’ would instantly transport me back to my university days, where everyone would cover their damp musty walls - common in old Bristol student houses - with those thin, mandala-print pieces of fabric.

For me, wall hangings were synonymous with the squat-like conditions we somehow survived - overflowing rubbish bins, dishes that hadn’t been washed for days, fraying carpets…you get the gist.

Thankfully times have changed and with what’s on the market these days, wall hangings can now serve as beautiful pieces of art that add character to an otherwise dull space. They’re especially good for rentals, as they’re an attractive alternative to something as permanent as paint or wallpaper.

So with this in mind we’ve scoured the internet to find you 5 of the most beautiful wall hangings around right now.
