Welcome to VELVENOIR

VELVENOIR is an international art consultancy and gallery that works with a global network of experts on various international hospitality, commercial and residential projects. It was founded in the heart of Salzburg, Austria, by Alexandra Schafer, with the vision to transform spaces into a personal experience by sourcing and displaying original contemporary artwork, with the support and advice of expert consultants. The company has continued to grow internationally, established a portfolio of career artists, and developed itself as a niche agency that focuses on clients in the art, design and hospitality industry. VELVENOIR and its international network seeks to develop and execute an art concept that inspires and engages clients through contemporary art, and the network achieves this by assisting with residential, commercial and hospitality projects at a global level. Crucially, our team recognise the importance of displaying distinctive artwork in hotel properties.
