Ancient Wall Decorations For Sale on 1stDibs

There is a range of ancient wall decorations for sale on 1stDibs. The range of distinct ancient wall decorations — often made from paper, wood and fabric — can elevate any home. Ancient wall decorations have been made for many years, and versions that date back to the 18th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 21st Century. Ancient wall decorations bearing Art Deco or Mid-Century Modern hallmarks are very popular at 1stDibs. Ancient wall decorations have been a part of the life’s work for many furniture makers, but those produced by Andrianna Shamaris, Bernard de Montfaucon and Werner Drewes are consistently popular.

How Much are Ancient Wall Decorations?

Ancient wall decorations can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price at 1stDibs is $2,129, while the lowest priced sells for $99 and the highest can go for as much as $42,867.

Finding the Right Wall Decorations for You

An empty wall in your home is a blank canvas, and that’s good news. Whether you’ve chosen to arrange a collage of paintings in a hallway or carefully position a handful of wall-mounted sculptures in your dining room, there are a lot of options for beautifying your space with the antique and vintage wall decor and decorations available on 1stDibs.

If you’re seeking inspiration for your wall decor, we’ve got some ideas (and we can show you how to arrange wall art, too).

“I recommend leaving enough space above the piece of furniture to allow for usable workspace and to protect the art from other items damaging it,” says Susana Simonpietri, of Brooklyn home design studio Chango & Co.

Hanging a single attention-grabbing large-scale print or poster over your bar or bar cart can prove intoxicating, but the maximalist approach of a salon-style hang, a practice rooted in 17th-century France, can help showcase works of various shapes, styles and sizes on a single wall or part of a wall.

If you’re planning on creating an accent wall — or just aiming to bring a variety of colors and textures into a bedroom — there is more than one way to decorate with wallpaper. Otherwise, don’t overlook what textiles can introduce to a space. A vintage tapestry can work wonders and will be easy to move when you’ve found that dream apartment in another borough.

Express your taste and personality with the right ornamental touch for the walls of your home or office — find a range of contemporary art, vintage photography, paintings and other wall decor and decorations on 1stDibs now.
