Williams Sonoma Home has launched an online art gallery in partnership with Los Angeles-based art curation brand Tappan Collective. The new gallery will showcase exclusive, limited-edition contemporary artworks ranging from original paintings to archival prints and sculptures.
Designed to revolutionize the process of transforming consumers’ walls through art, Williams Sonoma Home’s new digital art gallery will provide buyers with a new opportunity to collect art and discover new and emerging artists.
“Williams Sonoma Home’s partnership with Tappan Collective gives our customers access to incredible works of art across multiple mediums,” said Williams Sonoma President Felix Carbullido. “Offering a selection of original paintings, fine art prints and sculptures to our clients provides them with a unique opportunity to add an extra layer of personal expression to the design of their homes.”
“At Tappan, we believe that collecting art is for everyone. We believe in making art accessible,” said Tappan Collective founder Chelsea Nassib. “We are thrilled to partner with Williams Sonoma Home to introduce customers to new works of art, while helping these incredible emerging artists find their way into the homes of collectors.”
Artists featured in the Tappan Collective collection for Williams Sonoma Home include:
