What does the international network of art consultants offer

VELVENOIR a boutique art consultancy & gallery firm inspired by the power of art to intrigue, challenge, and create a deeper and more meaningful relationship between art and interior design in properties around the world. With its personalised approach and tailored art services, it represents a global home for firms who are passionate about fine art and eager to create outstanding experiences for our clients. We bridge the gap between international property developers, designers, cooperations and private collectors by offering them a network of carefully selected art consultant, advisors, and curators to work on each project together in order to develop and execute projects beyond clients expectations.

In this blog – we share the benefits, our unique approach, clients the network worked with as well as our latest projects.

“Through VELVENOIR I made it my mission to find the best partners in major cities, collaborate and grow an international network of art consultants, curators, and advisors for our clients’ high-end projects. Through this global network, we are able to assist our discerning clients who want to feel like they are getting something that has been carefully designed and considered, with infinite attention to detail, and that constitutes an overall art & design ‘experience’. Most of our clients want to feel like they have created a hidden gem, which reflects their own criteria for unique and one-off properties, through the art selected within the entire design concept. Our unique approach allows us to work as individual firms and collaborate on each project when required and this is exactly what I believe makes a difference in terms of working with a global consultancy firm.” – ALEXANDRA SCHAFER, Founder & Managing Director, VELVENOIR

International Experts

We´ve partnered with the best in class experts in the art world to ensure to develop and execute outstanding art collections and experiences for your property.

Growing fine art portfolio

We offer a constant growing art collection, which primarily consists of leading original works of art featuring a multitude of genres with a focus on unique, distinctive and rare artworks of appreciative value.

Experience, Passion & Professionalism

We bring 20 years experience to our practice, executing the highest standard of technical skill and creative finesse.

Budget & Deadline

We ensure our clients’ budget and the deadline is always met, throughout every project we


The team will liaise with the client to establish their intentions and aspirations for the art collection placed within the property. For us, it is essential to understand the individual needs and lifestyle choices from our clients in order to propose a curated collection. We will present an initial proposal of art with the intention to further define the final art choices due to our client’s art preference.

ART CONCEPT - Sharing the project with our network

Refining any art concept can often involve exploring simultaneous ideas with our clients until a definitive concept is agreed upon. We discuss each project as an individual one together with all Art Consultants, Advisors, and Curators which are part of the network. Together, we will draft a tailored art concept proposal based on our clients’ requirements.

Visualize the art in your project

We believe that in sourcing the finest art for your project – you invariably create the most beautiful of projects by focusing on the artist, medium and framing approach. Similarly, the more time we invest at this stage, we can deliver a more professional and accurate project so clients can fully visualise the art within their project.


Bespoke art commissions define us as a leading practice in the pursuit of individuality and tailored art experiences. While we will often propose one-of-a-kind fine art pieces, there are occasions when commissioning a piece of art are paramount for our clients. Therefore, working directly with the artist are essential to offer this exclusive service

Procurement & Transparency

 Away from the creative processes, we are equally passionate about total clarity, transparency, and accuracy during the realization of our projects. We offer our clients the highest standard of account management, ensuring all of our projects are procured and controlled precisely from the beginning on.

On-site installation

On-site installations can provide many challenges. With our qualified team of consultants and our many years of experience and resources in other professions, we can offer our clients the highest standard of site management to suit their requirements. The final stage of the art process is key to bringing the client´s art requirements to fruition, delivering on time and with excellence. We conclude our projects with a “white glove” installation of all artworks placed in each room, ensuring a seamless handover to our clients.
