Recently the international art consultancy and gallery network of art consultants, advisors and curators VELVENOIR collaborated with steininger.designers for ART X INTERIOR, an exclusive event at Steininger’s showroom in Vienna that presents the best experience on contemporary art and design and brought art lovers, designers, architects, art collectors together to experience a unique presentation.
The installation entailed a curated selection of fine art paintings, photography, exclusive kitchen and sculptures. I am happy to announce my collaboration with VELVENOIR that implements the highest quality of service and providing unique artwork to build and elevate a beautiful space.
Art and interior design at its best should have the appearance of being surrounded by the items and images you love. That’s why I feel it’s so important for anyone trying to make high quality interior design choices to become familiar with the best art so that you can choose the pieces that resonate the most with you. Very often we see wall art treated as an afterthought in interior design, but when chosen thoughtfully, the right wall art can complete the entire room. Dare we say it, but we think wall art matters most in interior design.
Art has long been treated as a focal point for rooms in both residential and commercial buildings. So it makes sense to treat it as an important part of the initial design process. Picture your favorite piece of artwork or favorite colors for a painting. Now imagine that with a blank canvas that you can design around! A piece of art can be a focal point on its own. For example, a big bold painting placed above your mantelpiece or above the bed in the master bedroom.
“Through this collaboration, we are now able to offer clients, our international art portfolio directly through the team of steininger.designers. The curated selection of art placed within the design concept of the showroom invites clients to experience contemporary art in a completely new way. For me, it was essential to collaborate with a strong partner such as steininger.designers to push the boundaries on how clients experience art.” – Alexandra Schafer, Managing Director VELVENOIR
“A core of international art consultants has come together to shape outstanding and inspiring ART x INTERIOR experiences for art collectors and design enthusiasts alike. The VELVENOIR Network gather a body of young female art specialists worldwide, that I am honored to be part of.” Claire Alliot Soto, Paris Palma Art Advisory
“The juxtaposition of art and design creates a dialogue within the space that heightens the beholder’s experience. STEININGER’s iconic minimalist aesthetic and clean lines are offset by Chen Ping’s textured abstract paintings which were previously exhibited at the Guangdong Museum of Art in Beijing.” – Ariane Belise, Art Advisor AIB – London
