The best places to buy wall art
As the old saying goes “home is where the art is”...
Ok, that’s not technically how it goes – but there’s no denying that some well-chosen wall art can go a long way in making a house feel like a home. Whether it’s subtle typography or a confusing contemporary piece that “really makes you think”...
Fortunately buying art no longer has to come with a Sotheby’s sized budget – there are plenty of ways to get your fix online without the hefty price tag. We just can’t promise they’ll be a one of a kind piece...
Here are some of our favourite places:
If you’re a fan of that whole minimalist, Scandinavian style of interior design, you’ve probably already got a Desenio print hanging in your home. This online shop specialise in affordable posters that reflect the latest interior design trends – so expect a bit of everything, from abstract line art to stunning photos and modern typography prints. Prices start at £2.95, and you can get a frame to match on the website too. Need a hand with your wall art design? Check out the “perfect pair” section of the site for expertly matched picture combos and inspiration for styling a room with them.
2. NINE BY NINE
Nine By Nine is perfect for trend trailblazers – the website features nine prints by nine new artists each month, and everything is limited edition. Better yet, each product is exclusive and showcases up and coming artists who earn commission from your purchase too. The vibe is totally modern, with bold themes, bright colours and plenty of statement typography – and it’s all totally affordable too.
3. URBAN OUTFITTERS
As the OG of edgy home décor, Urban Outfitters doesn't disappoint on the wall art front either. Old movie posters sit alongside unique wall tapestries and colourful graphic designs – whatever you go for, you can give yourself a few extra cool points. We particularly love the World Scratch Map – a giant foil scratch card that lets you show off all the amazing places you’ve been.
4. OLIVER BONAS
Oliver Bonas is one of our go-tos for quirky homewares, and their wall art collection doesn’t disappoint either. Admittedly some products are on the pricey side, but if you’re going to spend £32 on anything today it should probably be a hanging antelope head made from wire, right? Or maybe a very cute gold and glass wall frame for £16 will do instead…
Like “cool stuff”? You’ll probably love Fy. Self-acclaimed sellers of “the coolest stuff in the world”, the brand has a strong gallery of statement wall art. Most prints are priced at £17 a pop, and you’ve got the option to order a framed version too if you’re into that clean, contemporary look. Fy promise that hanging one of their pieces up will make you feel like “a proper adult” – #goals.
Just don't forget to wall art responsibly – Command strips are your BFFL for damage-free hanging.
