How to Select Artwork for Office and Business
Businesses have long had a close relationship with contemporary art. Large corporations and banks are well-known collectors of contemporary art, investing in both masters and emerging artists, and building world-famous collections.
Original contemporary art can represent the attitudes and values of one's company and make a great first impression for clients and colleagues visiting your office.
From a decorating perspective, it's a good idea to keep in mind general design considerations, in the same way you'd choose art for your home. (See PicassoMio's guide here.)
But beyond choosing a piece that fits the overall decorating scheme of your office, take advantage of the potential of art to make a visual statement by choosing artworks that complement your company's business, philosophy and style.
Medical offices often choose artworks that relax their patients in both the waiting room and the exam room. Landscapes, seascapes and florals are attractive options. Pediatricians will want to select animals or birds and other pieces that appeal to their young patients.
Sculpture can add an exciting third dimension to your office space, creating a focal point in lobbies or meeting rooms.
We also offer a selection of artworks selected especially for businesses.
Many businesses choose to decorate with artworks featuring a theme relevant to their business. For example, an architectural firm might decorate with artworks depicting buildings or linear designs. Here's a list of some of PicassoMio's selections, by theme:
