Many lasting trends were fuelled by the pandemic lockdown period, when we all had a lot more time in our homes, thinking about our surroundings and considering wall space.

Many people began choosing larger artwork, making collages with art prints to create feature picture walls or choosing one giant painting or textile to dominate.

One brand that I came across when considering getting creative with my wall art is Atelier Yuchi. They make a range of bold contemporary illustrative and distinctive pieces so good, you’ll want to frame them. Woven blankets, rugs and silk scarves.

My favourites are the ‘Exotica’ Leaf and ‘Tiger Zen’.

Exotica Blanket

The luxury lifestyle brand is the perfect choice for a statement-making interior addition. The versatile tapestry blankets can be used as a bed or sofa throw, picnic blanket, table cover or a wall hanging. They are fairly lightweight so customers are able to hang one on the wall themselves.

Tiger Zen

Founded by creative director Ivan Lan, Atelier Yuchi was born from a blend of Eastern and Western traditions.

Growing up in Taiwan, Ivan relocated to London in 1999 to pursue an education in fashion, later achieving fashion design degrees from London College of Fashion.


Aiming to supply a long- lasting product that becomes a treasure in your home, all Atelier Yuchi pieces are carefully handmade by artisan craftsman across the UK and USA in small quantities.

The colourful range of hand-tufted wool rugs are an artful fusion of patterns and shapes that can redefine a living space, adorning your hallway, bedside, or stair landing.

I have Tiger Zen' in mind to hang above the bed. Measurements pending.
