    I've just moved into a new place and I'm looking to decorate it with some nice wall hangings.

    Looked online, surprisingly I'm finding it bloody hard to find those standard, cool looking (NOT fluorescent) pattern wall hangings that you can always pick up at camden market.

    Does anybody have any good sites where I can pick up some of those old school wall hangings? Anything else nice worth looking at?

    I like metal art.

    A bit bait, but checkout Dunelms mate...

    Picked up some really minimal/tasteful bits n bobs for a non-extortionate price for our new front room. ;)

    What do you mean exactly by wall hangings?

    It's dead easy to staple fabric to frames.

    On my stairs I've got a frame of Breakneck flyers, large framed plastic numbers 2 & 3 which came from a squat party in a cinema, some framed original graff, 2 by SOLO ONE, 1 by INSA, a smart framed original artwork by Oli Frey who did lots of airbrush computer game and fantasy art in the 80's, and 2 of the 70's blue chinese lady frames, (2 different ones).

    I've also got a massive 'Filth by Irvine Welsh' poster signed across the middle in silver marker which I've still to frame, amongst other stuff.

    Wilkinson's and IKEA are good for cheap glass frames.

    I have some human skin lampshades which I picked up fairly cheap. Apparently they're from WWII era. Goes very well with my human skin rug.

    On a less serious note, Have you not just considered getting a massive poster?

    I prefer something a bit more contemporary.

    Please rename the thread "Post Abstract Pictures Of Josef Fritzl."

    This one never had a chance.

    just go to a local photographer if you got a decnt one near you and ask for art/canvases. you can usually get a big hi def abstract canvas at a good price. ive bought some art recently and paid quite a bit for some stuff then i went here http://www.gallerinoblog.com/ and got some canvases of some abstract stuff really cheap and had a porfolio of pictures done with the fam.

    My favourite jokes come in the form of laboured photoshop motivational picture combos
