13 Tapestries Inspired By The Natural World

City life doesn’t leave much time for the great outdoors. A dorm room or apartment can feel depressing when you’d rather be among the trees, hiking in the mountains or fishing a quiet lake at sunrise. You may feel like there’s no way to connect with Mother Nature. But a nature tapestry can help you do exactly that!

In the modern, technology-driven world, nature continues to inspire us in many ways. From a single autumn leaf gently wafting to the ground to a breathtaking comet blazing through the night sky, Mother Nature continues to remind us of our place in the Universe.

Many artists have made a name for themselves producing artwork inspired by nature. In museums and private collections around the world, the works of Vincent Van Gogh, Georgia O’Keeffe and many others remind us how the natural world can inspire an artist to create beauty on the canvas.

One of the most remarkable painters ever, Henri Matisse once said: “An artist must possess Nature. He must identify himself with her rhythm, by efforts that will prepare the mastery which will later enable him to express himself in his own language.”

This expression is not limited to painting. Nature tapestries showcase some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth, and textile artists inspired by landscapes have created works of art worthy of the world’s great museums.

But these tapestries can also be affordable and practical for just about anyone to use when decorating their home. A blank wall is really a blank canvas. Your “painting” can be a starry sky, a tropical waterfall, a rainforest or vast desert. It’s really up to you and what you feel inspired by.

 

Why A Nature Tapestry?

Tapestries are a unique form of wall art because they can fill an entire wall, cover a small window, or even hang from the ceiling overhead. They are easy to move, and they are easier to hang than paintings or photographs. A well-chosen nature wall tapestry can completely transform the look of a room. 

Nature-inspired wall hangings also make a great gift for friends and family. If you know someone who just moved into a dorm room or apartment, consider an affordable item from our nature collection. As a bedroom decoration, picnic blanket, bedspread, beach towel or window covering, a tapestry livens up the environment and will remind them of you for years to come.
