Diptychs and triptychs come from the Greek meaning two- (dip) or three- (trip) fold (tych) and historically refer to any objects or works of art that aredivided into panels and hinged together. Heavily used for religious iconography in churches and cathedrals from the Middle Ages on， diptychs and triptychs intoday’s art world are simply a creative continuation of a piece of art on two or more canvases.
We love the look for today’s homes for a variety of reasons. Read on to find out some of our favorite ways to decorate with them.anniversary gifts for couples
Some diptychs and triptychs are merely parts of an image that create a complete story when hung side-by-side， like our Whale Diptych Art. While either print can hang on its own or even vertically， they really add impact when hung together horizontally.
Others may share a near-mirror image that tie the panels together but work equally well on their own. This gives you more flexibility depending on the size of your wall space. Our Custom Soliloquy Art is beautiful when hung side by side or even vertically. If you move or your space changespersonalized wedding gifts， you can hang them separately to create two different focal points.
Here， our Al Fresco Art share similar hues and a motif that tie the panels together and give the look of one large piece of art， thus creating a quick and easy way to fill the space over a headboard， sofa or buffet. They also help unify the color scheme in this bedroom.
Diptychs and triptychs often share similar horizon lines， creating a seamless visual transition between the works of art that lends a sense of calm in a space. As demonstrated with our Cote de la Mer Prints， you can hang (or prop) a diptych or triptychclose together， so they are almost touching or with space in-between to fit your wall space and personal preference.
Gallery walls of mixed media are great， but they don’；t necessarily work well for every space. Our Nordic Abstract Art adds the same kind of visual interest and texture of a gallery wall without all the hassle.
The versatility of diptychs and triptychs is what keeps us coming back to them. It’；s kind of like buying a pair of lamps —； they’；regorgeous apart but better together!
