When it comes to decor, we've been seeing macrame everywhere and more for the past few years. From plant hangers to wall hangings, the look is a must for any boho or even midcentury eclectic space. And it's still going strong.

How about taking it up a notch and adding a macrame room divider to your home? Try it in a doorway, hang from the ceiling in your living room, or to add a touch of privacy to your bedroom. If you're DIY inclined, with a little patience, you can create your own with some simple material — we've included an easy DIY below. Or, if you prefer the more immediate route and want to buy instead of DIY, we've included a roundup of some of our favorite picks available right now. These boho inspirations are giving us all the vibes!
