We talk about home decor often, from the latest trendy copper accessories to what plant flatters a white wall the best. However, a home without art is an empty home. If you are looking to personalize your chez soi with art pieces, whether authentic or reproductions, you’ve come to the right place. Here are our favourite places to buy art for our walls!
1000 Museums is an online website that has made it their mandate to help museums thrive, by making it easier for lovers of art and culture to purchase archival reproductions from the establishments they wish to support. Their website comprises of art pieces that you may purchase (some even on sale!), but also links to museums and their current exhibitions, to help you plan your trip or help you plan your future trips accordingly. Their prices are extremely affordable, so don’t hesitate between your two favourite paintings — get both!
Eyes On Walls, founded by father-son duo Tom and Jim Rowlandson, offers a modern and exciting way to purchase art. They believe that “art shouldn’t be pretentious”, thus they do not call their customers “investors” or “collectors”, but instead “curators”. The website features art from a variety of talented up-and-coming artists and the styles range from traditional to whimsical designs, so there is something for everyone. Prices range from $30 to $350, depending on the size and type of design you want, and the money goes directly to the artist, which helps further support their career and ambition!
Society6 is a website well-known for their tech accessories, notably their unique phone cases and designs. However, many do not know that the website actually sells art, specifically prints, made by various independent artists. There is an immense variety of art to choose from, whether you prefer minimalist “one-line” designs — stunning ones can be found! — or quirky colourful paintings. Society6 prints can be used as beautiful wall decor, or even as gifts!
