Where to Find Artwork to Match Your Style

If you’ve ever stepped foot into a museum or gallery, you know how subjective art can be. What makes this painting or sculpture or photograph better than any other? Is a piece of art supposed to make you tear up? If just going to a gallery can have you feeling this bewildered, how are you ever going to pick artwork for your own home? From ethically sourced works to picking pieces that match your style, we’ve rounded up our favorite companies that make the process of selecting art a breeze.

Novica

Novica offers a wide range of pieces for the home, selling everything from sculptures to area rugs. This company was created to elevate artists from second- and third-world countries. Shop by type of artwork, style of art, or check out their themed collections like the “Hacienda” line which lets you add some Mexican flair to your pad. You can even search by area of the world the artists are from.

Society6

Society6 is a grown-up, more sophisticated version of Etsy. Just as with Etsy, artists can set up their own online shops to offer their work directly to customers. The main difference is that Society6 handles the manufacturing side so that artists can focus on creating and you can be sure you’re getting a high-end finished product. They have a massive catalog to search through but once you sort out the type of art you want (everything from posters to canvas prints), you can search by style.

For the Urban Explorer: These maps of cities from around the world have a gritty edge thanks to the aluminum canvas they are printed on.

The Citizenry

You may know The Citizenry for their high-end home decor, but they also offer a line of home accents that include wall art, decorative vases, and stylish mirrors. Working with artisans from around the world, The Citizenry curates small-batch collections, so not only will you be adding sophisticated pieces to your home, you know they are one-of-a-kind as well.

For Keeping Things Minimal(ist): Keeping in line with the Minimalist design aesthetic, this set of matte black vases add a timeless touch that will look good even without any greenery in them.

ArtsHaus

Working with over 50 independent galleries and dealers, ArtsHaus has an endless selection to choose from so you’re sure to find the right painting, photograph, or sculpture to perfectly finish out your decor.

For the Mid-Century Modern Enthusiast: Geometric pieces with bold colors, like Camberwell Green by abstract artist Terry Frost, perfectly balance the classic lines of Mid-Century Modern furniture and nature-inspired color palettes.

I see plenty of work needed. Grass lawns don't just grow back healthy and hearty year after year, not without help, anyway.
