The texture and rusticity that rope brings to an interior décor are so simple and yet with such a bold impact on the overall design. What’s also great about rope is that it’s so versatile you can use it for all sorts of great projects. With rope you can hang almost anything, from lighting fixtures to artwork and furniture.

Give your chandelier center stage by hanging it with rope but not from the ceiling but with a pulley system. It will definitely attract attention and you’ll have an interesting conversation subject during dinner.
You can also use rope to make a simple and interesting shelving system. Just take a few wood planks, usually two or three depending on how many shelves you want, drill a hole in each corner and then run rope through and tie knots.
Swing chairs are also charming and you can give yours an even more cozy and comfy look by using rope instead of metal chains to hang it from the ceiling. Because this is a rattan chair, the rope looks even better.
When you think about, you can basically hang any piece of furniture from the ceiling using rope, even the living room sofa. Create a giant and comfortable swing which your guests will love. Works great for the porch or patio as well.

You can make your own lighting fixture to hang above the kitchen island or above the dining room table. This one, for example, is hanging from the ceiling with rope and was made using a ladder.
