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 talented artists and designers, 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 all in one place. Such breadth of high-quality art is nearly impossible to find anywhere else. And 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.

Our Mission

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 artists and designers who create this work.

How is it that an artist's hand is evident in what he or she makes? I don't know, but that magic, that spark that emanates from an object clearly created by a living person has a quality and a story that enriches our lives in untold ways.

Our Artists

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 gifted artists, they are stunning to behold and a joy to use.

Supporting the Arts

We’ve partnered with American Craft Council, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting appreciation for contemporary American craft.

This is my second [piece by this artist] and I love this one as much as the first one I purchased. The design, colors, and quality are of the highest level. Once again, Artful Home delivered in a very timely manner and the packing and care of this piece was superb!

Everything is great...service, packaging, delivery, and most importantly, the sculpture is beautiful in its new home.

I ordered this quiche pan as a Valentine's Day gift for my very practical husband. We were both very pleased with it—the packaging was very nice and giftable, and the quality of the pan itself is exquisite. I'm looking forward to using it, as I can tell that it is going to take delicious meals up an extra notch.

I am amazed at how delicate and beautiful these earrings are. How [the artist] does that with these materials is beyond me. I'm sure these will stay in the family for generations.

My new cairn graces a small shelf in my dining room, overlooking our happy family gatherings. I added a small definition painted next to it on the wall, explaining that cairns help travelers find their way forward...or home. It's both a beautiful and symbolic piece of art for me.

Our Roots

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.

Giving Back

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.
