A Different Way to Hang Art

A Different Way to Hang Art

Putting hammer to nail may not always be the best way to hang art as Remodelista correspondent Izabella will attest. Here are a few different ways to show your favorite works:

Above: Wooden clothes hangers display art prints and posters; originally seen on AT.

Above: In her London flat, artist Tracey Emin hangs sketches from old drying frames used in screen printing that are suspended from the ceiling; image by John Shand Kydd, originally seen in the Wall Street Journal.

Above: In this photo from Elle Decor, the hallway in James Huniford’s house is decorated with art mounted on clipboards. Check out Remodelista’s post on Huniford’s Long Island home to see other rooms.

Above: Artist Sherry Olsen also uses office clipboards to hang art and scarves, seen here in her bathroom; image via Taverne Agency. Check out Remodelista’s post on the Stable Café to see more examples of artistic clipboard use.

Kinda funny! "Putting hammer to nail may not always be the best way to hang art" but if you look close almost every one of their ideas are hung on a nail. There are many ways to hang art with out nails depending on the weight. They make molding that runs near the ceiling that clips and cable run from to hold art. there are also removable adhisives that will hold single prints or lighter items.
