Nails or a rail with lines for a changing entry gallery to studio. - I like the look of no lines from the ceiling and artwork laying flat against the wall, but is it possible to put nails in an arrangement that can change and still look professional?

Thanks! The map was a gift but you can find something similar from Restoration Hardware, Authentic Models or I believe Wisteria now sells one.

If you're looking for a good frame I would suggest either going online to Chelsea Frames or AI Friedman.

I bought this couch second hand but it was made by Hickory Chair - you can find similar designs from restoration hardware, Jayson Home or Crate & Barrel. Hickory is also sold through Horchow.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Loosely arranged wall art can be sophisticated. Mix and match frame sizes but keep the color scheme subdued and restricted. Limit the palette to two or three hues. In this living room, the gold, brown and cream art collection is proper while the imperfect arrangement is casual. It's a contrast that works.
Lisa Frederick added this to What's in a Frame?
Don't worry about matching frames. Take your cue from art galleries and match frames to the art, not to each other. Grouped on a wall, properly framed pieces will complement each other beautifully.More:New Year's Resolution: Frame Your PhotosClever New Uses for the Picture Frame
Lindsey M. Roberts added this to 6 Easy Ways to Skillfully Hang Your Art
You may need to adjust for furniture underneath so that you're not creating an awkward large gap between the art and the sofa.
