displaying modern art

Mixing modern and vintage is right on trend but it can be a challenge if your architecture is from another century. We hope you can forgive us for the quality of the image, but this creative idea from our Miami store was one of our favorite solutions that we wanted to share.

In Victorian times, picture rails were incorporated into the trim or molding as a way to hang portraits and art. Usually thick ropes ornate with tassels were attached to the artwork and hidden clips allowed for easy placement and positioning on the rail—without doing damage to plaster walls.

While the bungee cords shown are looped around the metal pole, consider latching their hooks on to actual picture rails to hang modern art or framed photos. Cords come in a variety of thicknesses, lengths and colors; check your local hardware store to find the most appropriate for the task and hang on!
