Art plays a central role in today’s luxury interior design. Collecting is on the rise and clients are increasingly looking for an interior design professional with the know-how to use their art collection as the crux of an entire concept. Interior designers are happy to oblige – many are either art collectors themselves or partner with an art consultancy firm to ensure the clients receive everything from one trusted partner.
In a world where you can find thousands of artworks readily online – from prints to bespoke works and from paintings to reproductions – the market reached its full potential with regards to finding art for your upcoming projects. However, most interior designers still choose prints or reproductions because they´re easy and quick to acquire.
