Why Is Art The Perfect Gift?

Here at Industville, we are advocates of incorporating unique and handcrafted accessories in interiors. We feel the same about art, it’s often left as an afterthought, but the right artwork can make a world of difference to a décor. Our showroom walls are dedicated to showcasing unique pieces of art which give talented and aspiring artists a platform for their work to be recognised.

Not only does art inject some colour and personality into your interior, but it’s also a perfect gift. As we’re officially into December, we thought what better time to explore why artwork is the perfect gift!

Why Art?

First and foremost, artwork is a personal gift. To decide on the perfect piece will show your loved one how well you know them, and there is no better feeling than seeing them swoon over something you’ve chosen. Art not only looks aesthetically pleasing, by helping to set the tone and mood of the space it’s placed, but it takes the owner through a journey. A number of artists whose art is featured on our site currently have a discount, so what better time to shop than now? Find unique artwork at a lower price than usual!

Read on to discover some of the top reasons why art is a great gift, whether that’s for Christmas or throughout the year.

Art Is Unique

By gifting an original piece which is entirely unique to the individual will ensure that they have something which is one of a kind. There are so many different styles and types of artwork that the possibilities of finding the perfect piece are endless! The pieces of art which are listed on our site are forever expanding, from talented artists who put their all into creating these unique pieces just for you. We also dedicate a lot of time to designing new lights, which pair perfectly with unique art!

Art Is Timeless

People tend to treasure their art collections, displaying these pieces for years to come and even passing them through generations. Just think, a piece of art you give this year could be passed down through many generations and treasured for years to come. This is why when selecting art, handcrafted is always best because it is timeless and longlasting. Many of our customers not only incorporate timeless art, but they also ensure it is lit up in style, adding value and timeless elegance to their decors, whether that’s in a home interior or commercial setting.

Art Sparks Creativity

Having the ability to completely transform a space, by gifting a piece of art, you allow the giftee to spark their creativity. They’ll think about where best to place the art, the ideal type of frame for it and whether they should change anything in their interior to complement the piece. Art allows an interior to feel complete. The gallery wall in the interior below looks stunning, the pieces not only complement each other, but our glass wall light slots in perfectly, giving the art it’s time to shine!

Art Adds An Instant Colour Palette

Deciding on a room’s interior can often be a difficult decision, and our advice is to select a colour palette from a piece of art. By picking out colours from an original and statement piece, it gives an instant colour palette and makes interior design bundles easier! For example, the décor below has used rich greens not only in the art but in the colour of the walls, which helps to tie the decor all together.

Another perfect way to add instant colour is by adding some fabric flex to your lighting. With over 50 colours, our range of flex cables are as stylish as they’re practical. A dark green cable would look stunning in the interior above and help to tie the décor together even more!

Put The Spotlight On The Art

Now we’ve explored why art is the perfect gift; the ideal accompaniment with art is handcrafted lighting! Art shouldn’t be left in the dark but instead allowed to shine, and the perfect way to do that is by having sufficient light to show off its abilities. With a versatile and extensive range, our range of retro industrial lighting will allow your loved one to show off their gift in a beautiful way! With lights starting from just £29, in a variety of colours, whether that’s copper, brass, pewter or brass, we are sure you’ll find the ultimate accompaniment. So, why not have a browse?

If you aren’t entirely sure on the type of art they’d prefer or the style of lighting, why not gift them with a gift voucher? This gives them the option to find the perfect match for themselves, whether this is a piece of art of their choice or one of our industrial lights. Our vouchers are available in any value you wish!

As we mentioned at the start of this blog, we actively support artists and the creative community by devoting our showroom walls to their handcrafted, beautiful, unique pieces of art. We also invite creative young people to participate in the photography space, which is built in our warehouse. This gives them a place to experiment and showcase their designs, wallpaper, paintings, ceramics and furniture.
