Every home tells a story of the owners’ experiences, aesthetic preferences, and current daily life.
When you mix a handmade piece (or two) of embroidered hoop-art into your decor, you’re adding elements with unique appeal.
Here are 4 reasons to display embroidered hoop-art on the wall or on a stand with table-top vignettes.
1. Embroidered decor adds shape and texture
The inclusion of an embroidered hoop in your decor groupings lets you add variety with a round shape and textured elements. So often groupings are filled with squares and rectangles–and flat or smooth surfaces.
In this vignette, our Vintage Truck hoopart mixes well with a rectangular piece of word art sitting on a slice of wood. Small pumpkins in wood and rafia add texture that complements the fibers in the embroidery.
2. You can change embroidered décor seasonally
You don’t need to display all of your finished hoops all of the time. Keep them in your buffet or living room cabinet and change them out seasonally. Choose pieces that add relevant motifs and colors complement your current décor.

When there’s no holiday to be celebrated, I like displaying a piece like On The Canal along with other pieces like the pitchers, wooden trug and pie bird shown here.
