Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Artful Home is embarking on a journey to become a more inclusive and equitable company.
We believe that creative expression exists in everyone—across all dimensions of identity. Yet not everyone has equal access to the places where their creativity can be seen and heard. Therefore, we are working to break barriers of access for artists, makers, and designers. We are committed to celebrating and representing the true diversity of american culture.
We are also determined to expand our workplace culture to one that values diversity and centers equity. We are cultivating a culture in which every voice is heard and every team member feels a strong sense of belonging.
We recognize that this will be an ongoing transformative process that requires systemic change. We will demonstrate our commitment by supporting our team members in this process and providing education, training, and growth opportunities. And we will hold each other and ourselves accountable—because the work may not be easy, but it is necessary.
What We Do
Imagine surrounding yourself with works of art that truly move you or make you happy. At Artful Home, we make it possible for you to find your inspiration among thousands of works created by talented artists and designers. Most pieces are shipped directly from the artists' studios—offering you a personal connection with the artist.
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 and designers who create this work.
Craftspeople. Designers. Artisans. Makers. Creators. There are many names for the talented people who create the artwork we love—and countless approaches to bringing these pieces to life.
From painters and glassblowers to furniture makers and apparel designers, we represent more than 1,200 accomplished artists, most of whom work in independent studios in the USA and Canada. We are proud to present this diverse roster of remarkable artists to you.
Every artist who applies to Artful Home is individually evaluated in a rigorous jurying process. Only a fraction of the artists who apply are accepted—those whose work demonstrates an exceptional level of creativity, craftsmanship, beauty, and integrity. Read more about our jurying process.
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 created with care by talented North American artists, they are stunning to behold and a joy to use.
Supporting the Arts
We are thrilled to partner with American Craft Council, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting appreciation for contemporary American craft.

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.
