Something for Every Wall: Artful Pieces by Independent Makers on Wescover

June 24, 2021

It’s the summer of shopping small. We’re always proponents of sourcing from local shops and makers, but now more than ever is a good time to support artists and artisans in lieu of big box stores—what the online marketplace Wescover calls “purchasing with purpose.” Small-batch wares are thoughtfully made, high quality, meant to last, and personal; plus, sourcing this way cuts down on “fast” design and disposable culture, adds meaning to interior spaces, and—importantly—lends support to independent creatives.

This means art and wall hangings, too. Adding a dose of color or texture to the wall is a simple, impactful way to upgrade a room—and you don’t have to be an art collector or have an endless budget to connect with individual painters, printmakers, fiber artists, and other makers. Browse Wescover to shop the wares of “Creators” favored by top designers and used in design-forward surrounds (like the Ace Hotel in LA, or connect directly with a Creator to design a piece that’s entirely custom for your palette, space, or style.

Take a look at a few artful finds—mirrors, woven wall hangings, custom murals, and paintings—to upgrade any space, spotted via Wescover.
