Three fantasy novels in the Lord of the Rings series were first released by J. R. R. Tolkien between 1954 and 1955 as a follow-up to “The Hobbit,” which was released in 1937. It’s difficult to think that “The Return of the King” did not become a worldwide sensation right away after publication; but, that is exactly how long it took for it to gain popularity. People considered the books to be a welcome getaway from war and other life stressors in the 1960s and 1970s, when the high-fantasy genre was just starting to take off. When “The Fellowship of the Ring” hit theaters in 2001, a brand-new generation was introduced to the fantastical world of Middle-Earth.
Tolkienites or Ringers are terms used to describe die-hard readers of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. It makes logical that, as a devoted fan, you would want to show off your appreciation for Middle-Earth and its inhabitants around your home. The following are some elegant methods to include your favorite series in your interior design.
Maps have long been a mainstay in homes, and incorporating them as wall art can provide an interesting focal point in a space and serve as a wonderful discussion starter. Maps of the world and the United States are common choices for wall art, but how much more superior would a map of Middle-Earth be? You may relive your favorite scenes from this fantastic fantasy series by gazing at the map.
Consider adding a statement piece of furniture to your space if you’re really serious about incorporating “The Lord of the Rings” into your interior design.
A tasteful approach to pay homage without going overboard is with LOTR-inspired furniture. Look for shapes that bring to mind the movies when purchasing statement pieces like headboards, seats, or buffets. Elven-inspired furniture has curves and cutouts, whereas Dwarf-like furniture is made of sturdy wood with metal inlays. If you’re looking for a Hobbit house, go for furniture with simple, clean lines that is inspired by nature and is ideal for having a second breakfast.
Wall art is arguably the simplest method to introduce Middle-earth into your home. There are many lovely pieces to pick from. When looking for “The Lord of the Rings”-inspired wall art, a huge piece enables you to establish a focal point — the first thing you see when you enter a space. When hung above a sofa, this trio of canvases would be a great focal point. Cheap canvas art posters that mimic travel advertisements look amazing grouped together. To add color and fun to your area, think about collecting items from Gondor, Mordor, and Hobbiton.
