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.
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.
- Lisa Bayne
CEO, Artful Home
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.

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.
