8 amazing examples of ‘knolling’ around the home

We can't get enough of knolling - the process of arranging related objects as a method of organisation

Chances are you've not heard of the term 'knolling' before, but trust us, in the last few months it's become an instagram sensation. Or, as we like to think, an organiser's dream. Knolling basically refers to a unique way of grouping and organising similar objects and then photographing from above. Many people insist that items should be grouped parallel or at 90% degree angles (we think the display should be as creative as you want). But before you head on over to Instagram, here at Housetohome we've selected a few stunning examples of knolling to whet your appetite.
