It seems like MACRAMÉ is EVERYWHERE, and even though I may be a little late to the Boho game, I've always liked a little CaliMod in my life. So I managed to convince the husband to whip up this beauty for the corner of our dining nook.

But hey, the final product DOES look pretty darn good, and I love the simple white cord against the muted green of the pineapple plant. Oh yeah, propagating pineapples is another secret skill of my significant other....
And if you don't have a husband proficient in handling hemp, here are some lovely woven alternatives I found online.
