College dorms aren't exactly the cutest on their own: industrial carpet floors, stark white walls, a cramped space that you have to share with at least one other person, if not two or more. That's why it's so important to decorate your room—without accents like wall art, throw pillows, or a cool dorm rug, you won't feel as at home as you could. And speaking of wall art, wall tapestries are pretty much the quintessential way to add personality and warmth to those cinderblocks. (Seriously, if you didn't hang a tapestry at some point in your dorm days, did you even go to college?)
But of course, you want one that actually shows off your personality and doesn't wind up being the same generic boho print half the other students in your dorm have, too. The best way to achieve that is to skip the usual dorm decor stores and shop somewhere like Society6, where you can find art from artists all over the world and turn it into a tapestry. So, without further ado, here are some of the most interesting tapestries out there—trendy enough to make you look cool, but unique enough that no one else in your hall will have it.
