Hanging Styles


This listing of hanging styles may help find where your style fits best.

The Eccentric – This style is far from simple and adds in multi-dimensional elements to get the best impact. A combination of various styles and themes all combined on a single wall.

The Grid – This style is minimal, clean and neat, with a geometrical style arrangement. If your wall art is similar in style and size, the grid may be your style. Best suited in environments where OCD people live with organized clean rows of things.

The Anchor – This style offers balance to a room. A single statement piece is added that brings about togetherness with large scale furnishings such as a sofa, bed, or table.

The Bohemian – Similar to a salon style arrangement, the middle of this area is presented at eye level and build around with different sized pieces and a cohesive theme. This can offer your home a sense of personality.

The Gallerist – This is a style best suited for similar color schemes and narratives. Offering your wall some breathing room and best suiting hallways, long pieces of furniture, or linear spaces with some added style.

The Casualist – This is a throw together style with casual frames leaning against a shelf or piece
of furniture. Artwork can be exchanged out frequently without placing to many holes in the
wall.
