Back in the day I spent 4 years as a commercial interior designer. That means I lived, breathed and dreamed about commercial buildings and spaces for over four years of my life! I LOVED it! (but more on that in an upcoming Tell All Tuesday post 🙂
There are a lot of codes and standards you are required to know as an interior designer, however after you get through the process of designing the space, you get the opportunity to fill the space with wonderful, beautiful things! You get the opportunity to choose fixtures, furniture, equipment and accessories! Lots and lots of fun!
One of my favorite parts of the process was choosing art for the space! I worked with an amazing woman who specialized in art and framing and between her expertise, the client and myself we could always find the best pieces of artwork to pull the entire space together and make it perfect!
One thing I didn't think very much about however was the actual hanging system for the artwork. Unless the client asked specifically for something different or unless we felt a different solution was pertinent to the client, we just did the traditional nail-in-wall hanging solution (ok, it was a bit more complicated then that, but you get the point.)
Recently, I discovered a different wall hanging solution. One that makes interchanging art, photos or displays easier and less complicated (and less holes in your wall). AS Hanging Systems has many solutions that are perfect for a commercial office space OR a residential space.
AS Hanging Systems has many solutions that are perfect for commercial applications or museum hangings, however, I am really excited to show you a few solutions that are perfect for your HOME!!
Their basic track systems starts with a single track installation. And from there you install the art by cables that are attached to the track and hooks that are attached to the cable. This makes changing art a breeze and results in less holes to patch!
If you want to hang rugs or tapestries, they have a Fabric Clasp that does the job without needing to puncture holes in your precious fabrics!
And one of the coolest applications is the Cable Based Wall system used on a Brick (or other) wall! Many of us have brick fireplaces and installing art on it leaves a permanent, really hard to fix, hole! If you use a cable system for your art, you won't have holes in your brick and not only is your art interchangeable, but your brick wall stays good as new!
And one of my absolute FAVORITE applications is a bit different, but it is a system that I would absolutely LOVE to have in my home!
With two children, I constantly receive an influx of artwork as presents and gifts! It is so precious and I love it! But I don't have room to store, save or display all of it!
When I saw AS Hanging Systems Pocket Display tensioned cable system, I thought it would be PERFECT to add to our playroom to display and rotate my children's latest and greatest artwork!
Seriously how cool would that be! As the pockets fill up, my children would have to choose what art to take out and what to leave in! It would be so fun in the playroom and a perfect solution for where and how to display precious children's art!
In the past, art hanging systems have been designed and catered towards retail, office, hospitality and museum applications, but I find it very refreshing that AS Hanging Systems is offering systems that also accommodate the needs of residential users!
This system makes changing out art so simple and you have fewer holes in your walls! I can't tell you how many times I have had to patch walls when I want to change my wall displays and having a system like this in place would eliminate the need to patch holes and keep my walls in better condition!
