Our house came with a big expanse of wall over the landing at the front door. Until we can afford some large and fabulous art I decided we needed something relatively inexpensive to fill the space and give it some depth. At 57 inches wide and about 80 inches tall this Marimekko Hetika wall hanging from CB2 worked nicely. Here is a thumbnail of what it looks like next to a photo of my front hallway:
CB2 has more Marimekko fabrics you can use with the hanging rail, each is about 57 inches wide, and vary in length. The Paaryna image of a single pear (shown above) in simple and whimsical. When hung on a colored wall the Tuuli decoration of tree branches gives the illusion of a large window. Ro is a bold image of a single leaf in black and white.
Lahde is a longer hanging which makes me think of an over sized water coloring.
In particular I love the hanging rails that CB2 carries, which are sold separately from the fabric wall hangings. The top rail has two loops to hang over nails or screws you put into the wall, two small holes for such a large decoration is something renters can appreciate. The rails come with instructions on how to sandwich the fabric so it’s held taut along the entire width and installation is fairly simple. The most difficult part of hanging ours was borrowing a ladder from friends.
