If, like us, you are still obsessed with the whole rustic, boho, nomad look then this macramé room divider is perfect.

It's not the most sturdy room divider on our list, but for anyone looking to brighten up a small uninspiring space, this is the best room divider for small, dull spaces as its light airy colours don't overcrowd a room.
