Our Favorite Abstract Pairings
We asked our Art Director, Laura Kackley, which question she's seeing the most often in design advice emails these days, and she said: abstract pairings!
This comes as no surprise. Who doesn't love a statement wall with beautifully balanced abstracts playing off one another?
One of our forever favorite examples is from Kindred Vintage, who curated this grouping on what we now call "the wall."
Art by Lindsay Sherbondy
Space by Susan of Kindred Vintage
Isn't it just lovely? Susan has an amazing eye for balance and color, and her vision came together beautifully!
She also demonstrated two great rules of thumb when creating a statement wall like this!
(1) Go big! It helps to measure out the space with painter's tape to make sure the size you're ordering will have the impact you want. The above canvases are 30x38.
Budget tip: If you need more scale for your dollar, consider framed art prints. They come in sizes up to 24x30, and with the added mat, the finished size is 30x36 (2 inches shy of Susan's statement canvases). You'll just want to keep glare in mind with where you're hanging them, as the prints are behind glass. Canvas = no glare.
(2) Choose an understated frame. When in doubt, consider the gallery white frame! It really allows the artwork to shine, and gives a polished, finished look.
Without further ado... here are our current favorite abstract pairings to recommend!
