Wall Art Inspiration: The Statement Art Piece

After years of  gallery walls being the on-trend way to arrange art, we’ve recently started to see more and more of our clients take the opposite approach. Instead of filling up a wall with a dozen smaller art pieces, they’ve opted instead for one oversized, grand-scale work.

While we’re still big fans of the gallery wall, the statement piece feels fresh and new, and works perfectly for certain spaces. If you’re considering swapping out multiple pieces for one large one, or have a blank space you need to fill, let these recent photos from our client installations serve as an inspiring guide.

1. The monster piece. This work, hung above a sofa in the living room of a Manhattan apartment, is a statement piece in the most exaggerated sense. It steals the show in the room, and breaks the conventional rules that dictate art must be three-quarters the length of the sofa, but in the very best way. The result is simply stunning.

2. The floor-to-ceiling art. Here, a client installed a room screen on the wall in a hallway, transforming a boring white space into a veritable art gallery.

3. The in-between piece. The final statement piece is a slightly scaled down approach to the statement piece (if only compared to the above two examples) but still creates a singular focal point for the room.
