Today as in the past, contemporary landscape tapestries capture the natural world. These wall hangings bring the outdoors in, with their handwoven tapestry details. The large tapestries, whether they are landscape tapestries, or other subjects also introduce a sense of space by adding a verdant panorama to homes and offices all year round.
Tapestries that expressed nature and brought the outdoors in, reached their full potential during the 17-19th centuries. Much like our society today which is more mobile, people would spend their weekends and vacations with regular visits to the country estates, forests, and lakes. As a result the natural surroundings became incorporated into wall tapestries expressing the natural world around us. They often depicted rambling pathways deep into forests and panoramic views of lakes and the countryside.
