About Artful Home
Made in the USA and Canada
The artists we represent work in small, independent studios in North America—not overseas, not in factories.
Direct from artists' studios
Each piece is individually created by an artist and shipped directly from his or her studio to your home.
We offer over 18,000 original works of art in a juried and curated collection of exceptional quality.
30 years' experience
Launched as The Guild in 1985, Artful Home has been successfully connecting artists and art lovers for 30 years.
Your delight guaranteed
Our greatest pride is in your peace of mind. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, we will gladly take it back.
What We Do
Imagine surrounding yourself with works of art that truly move you or make you happy. At Artful Home, find your inspiration among thousands of works created by North American artists, a collection curated by a team of art world specialists.
Part gallery, part art fair, part online marketplace...Artful Home is all of these things and more. Shopping here is like shopping hundreds of galleries and boutiques across North America. Such breadth of high-quality art is nearly impossible to find anywhere else. And because every piece is shipped directly from the artist's studio, you'll also enjoy a personal connection with the maker of your artwork.
Artful Home helps artists get exposure and sell their work. Thanks to us, many artists are able to quit their day jobs or spend less time managing their businesses—and spend more time in their studios doing what they love.
Art is our passion. We are dedicated to offering the most exceptional and beautiful works of fine art, craft, and design for your home and wardrobe. We are equally committed to supporting the livelihoods of the celebrated North American artists who create this work.
- Lisa Bayne
CEO, Artful Home
Craftspeople. Designers. Artisans. Makers. Creators.
We call them all "Artists."
There are many names for the talented people who create the artwork we love. And it's no wonder: such a diverse and creative community is bound to have many ways to describe who they are and what they do. But the word "artist" is timeless. It's elegant. And it reflects the incredible creativity, talent, and effort that every maker puts into his or her work.
From painters and glassblowers to furniture makers and apparel designers, we represent a diverse range of more than 1,200 talented artists, all working in independent studios in the USA and Canada.
Art with a Story
Every work of art at Artful Home has a story to tell—the story of the artist who made it. Once you invite it into your home, it becomes a part of your life—and the story continues.
Art can be the painting over your couch or the sculpture in your garden. It can also be your coffee cup, your favorite dress, or your wedding ring. When these objects are handcrafted with care by talented North American artists, they are stunning to behold and a joy to use.

Lisa Bayne, CEO
Lisa Bayne drives the vision, strategy, merchandising, and marketing of Artful Home. Bayne's life and career have always been a mix of art and commerce. With a love for all things textile, she started her career as a fashion designer. After holding senior executive positions in marketing, merchandising, and design at J. Jill, Gymboree, Smith & Hawken, and Eddie Bauer, she decided to marry her lifelong passion for art with her professional marketing and merchandising skills. In 2007, she joined the board of directors of Artful Home and was named CEO in 2008. In addition to her work, she is a serial knitter, a serious foodie, and an incurable collector.
Artful Home got its start in 1985 as a publishing company that helped artists sell their work to designers and architects. In 1999, it was transformed into a successful website and catalog offering fine works of art for the home. Today, we continue to offer a breathtaking variety of art through our catalogs and on our website.
Since 2003, Artful Home has supported CERF+, a non-profit organization that assists artists during emergencies. Through grants, loans, and education, CERF+ has helped save the careers of hundreds of artists—including some we know well. We are proud to contribute to this vital organization.
