Art is an important addition to any home. It brings personality, energy, and of course style. It can turn a plain and boring room into a trendy and exciting one. However, there are many different styles and forms of art available nowadays. Thus, you need to determine what style of art you are going to incorporate. One of the best options to go for is undoubtedly sculptural artwork. This is a trend that is set to get more and more popular as the year goes on. So, keep on reading to discover all you need to know about it…
Generally speaking, sculptural artwork can really bring a space to life. It offers an excellent way of bringing character and energy into the home.
However, sculptures can be used in a whole host of different ways. It is all about considering your space and what it needs. Does it need an injection of colour? Do you need to spice up the backdrop of your room? Perhaps you have an unusable space that could do with some decoration?
Let’s use the latter as our first example. If you take a look at the picture above, you will see that the space underneath the stairs is an awkward one. But, whilst it may not be useable, it certainly doesn’t have to be boring. The carved dogs not only spruce up the area, but they bring warmth and cosiness to the setting.
A lot of people mistakenly believe that all sculptural artwork is big and bulky. Undoubtedly these are qualities a lot of sculptures boast, and this is why they work extremely well when creating a focal point. Nonetheless, not all sculptural artwork is like this. You can create a stunning and soft background as well. Would you rather the stunning tree sculpture as shown in the picture? Or, would you rather hang a standard painting there instead? We know what we’d prefer!
What about when you want to bring some colour to your room? A lot of people embark on an extensive redecoration process. They paint their walls, they change their sofas, and so on and so forth. Yet, the mere addition of a striking and vibrant sculpture can make all the difference. It can really bring your room to life. As mentioned, sculptures tend to be the focal point in the room, and thus they generate all of the attention. This means you can make a massive impact if you opt for a colour in a vivid shade.
And remember, sculptures don’t need to be huge in size! A sculpture offers a beautiful way of dressing a coffee table for example. It has a dramatic impact yet on a much smaller scale. After all, not everyone has a taste for over-the-top designs! Don’t restrict yourself to the coffee table either when going for smaller sculptures, this little man is ideal for holding your towels….
