    I believe all of the pieces were thrifted by the couple over time. It's a one of a kind set!

    MacraméPorterfield and Katz’s dining room bursts with houseplants in macramé hangers crafted by Katz. She learned the art of knot tying from her mother, who sold similar hangers in the 1970s to earn money to buy a guitar. Now Katz has turned her hobby into a business, Modern Macramé, through which she takes commissions, sells supplies and teaches workshops in Portland and around the world. Macramé is an ancient Middle Eastern art that traveled during the Arabian conquest to Spain, where it got its name. Nimble-fingered sailors took it up to make hammocks and other items during long days at sea, spreading the art to Asia, Australia and the Americas. Macramé was especially popular during the frilly Victorian period, when it was used as embellishments for tablecloths, bedspreads and curtains. Like quilting and other handicrafts, it surged again in the natural-fiber, DIY environment of the 1970s.Still, “hoo” could’ve imagined the national obsession with macramé owl wall hangings that took flight after Woodsy became the U.S. Forest Service’s mascot in 1971 and implored, “Give a hoot! Don’t pollute”? Read more about this bohemian homeLearn how to make a macramé plant hanger

    Illuminate a table. If you have space for a dining table, whatever its size, then you have space for an equally proportioned chandelier, which can be hung above. The soft light a chandelier creates is perfect for warmly zoning the dining area.
