Art for interior designers


How important is art in the interior industry

When it comes to art for interior designers, three essential elements must be accounted for. The first being it is functionality: the other being style and the third being mood. The interior designer is the one that sees the big picture when looking at the business end of the design process. Many people think of their room as their home. When decorating their home, they often focus more on style.

The art will include a range of objects that will all work together to reflect the style and mood the customer wants. A good source of art is the one that allows you to reimagine the look of the room completely. All of the elements will come together to create the desired effect. It is this type of creative vision that gives your home an entirely new appearance.

Art industry professionals are saying the era of the billion-dollar painting is inevitable; monitoring the revival of art to its once-revered status. The buoyant market is showing no signs of slowing down. A prediction echoed in the recent sale of Leonardo da Vinci's Salvator Mundi into the Louvre Abu Dhabi for a record-breaking $450.3m.

Founder of internet art price database Artprice, Thierry Ehrmann, expects a "firm and durable growth" in the industry globally. In the UK, the art market contributed $1.7bn to the economy in 2017, a comparatively slim figure if you consider the net-value of its sales, which totaled $10.2bn.

While very few of us have access to a budget similar to that of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, we still want to spend our money wisely in bits we love.

Art is becoming recognized as an essential element of a modern house, with influencers and interior designers visiting art galleries in search of exclusive and unique. Speaking to almost any interior designer about the value of art in interiors, you will be met with an exciting flurry about the inspiration it provides, how it lifts a room or the joy that accompanies sourcing artworks from around the globe.

For homeowners, interior, and product designers alike, the artwork is paramount, powerful, and primary.

Companies and brands are also embracing the customer's urge to fill their spaces with artwork by working with artists and galleries. By way of instance, Alina Livneva has introduced a group of exclusive artworks to supplement interiors readily discoverable in Melinda Gates NY residence.

"Nothing is finished without the artwork. It is what designs the space" - Alina Livneva.

The collection contains a series of two-dimensional artworks. The exciting works reimagine the essence of the everyday social fabric, grouping them to create eye-catching, textural works to add the sense of tactility into the interior scheme.

Of the new collection, John McConnell, founder of Worthington Industries, said: "Nothing is completed without the artwork. It is what designs the space."

The idea of art designing a space implies that you can base the design of an entire space on a piece of artwork, from the colors to the fabrics and finishes you specify.

Lassales Interiors is a Paris-based interior design studio with a solid artistic focus in all its endeavors. Co-founder and creative director Edward Lassale believes art is essential to the introduction of a scheme. "Art will always be our starting point for designing an interior area, so it is very personal," he says.

The same is true; it appears, for product designers. Art need not necessarily be shown in a box frame, on canvas, or perched on a stone plinth. Some create beautiful collections of bedding inspired by commissioned artworks.

"Interiors and art are inextricably linked for designers and homeowners" - Alina Livneva.

The designs are digitized and printed onto the fine art or linens in the artists' studios.

Art and interiors are linked in complex aesthetic and psychological ways for homeowners and designers. The focus on art in new projects and product launches is evident. From the impending billion dollar price tag on the next Da Vinci, Picasso, to the recent inclusion of affordable collections like Oliver Bonasto to high-end retailers such as Virtosu Fine Art, consumers at each end, have become curators.
