Today’s guest post is from Katie, a blogger at Inmod, an online retailer of modern furniture, lighting and décor.

Hi everyone! Taking a note from Petra’s inspired art blog posts, I’ve decided to match up her beautiful artwork with select pieces of furniture that we offer over at Inmod. I don’t know about you, but when I’m thinking of a piece of art, a photograph or drawing for interior spaces, I think of the art drawing in from something within the room, typically a piece of furniture. So, let’s get started!

The first pair we have is the Hayworth Sofa matched with the Ho’okipa silk carving that is 46” x 16”. These two would be a great fit firstly because of the similar colors and secondly because of the texture. The silk carving has interesting texture that coincides with the smooth text of this modern sofa. This sofa is 72” wide, so the carving placed horizontally would look excellent if hung above.

Petra has a wonderful collection of photography that includes many bright blossoms, which I found a perfect match for the Fiore Chair. I chose three of the photos and tiled them above the chair, which would be perfect for a sitting area in a corner of a living room or bedroom. This is a great art/furniture combo for the lover of color.

Finally, I dove into the drawings section of Petra’s collection to find the perfect match for Inmod’s popular Ball Chair. As the Ball Chair is a fun, whimsical piece of furniture, I was in search of a drawing that was equally as fun and full of whimsy. I think I hit the nail on the head by pairing the Ball Chair with Petra’s Vanity drawing, how about you? The oversized drawing measures 58” x 32” – and its character is the perfect accompaniment to the Ball Chair. 
What do you think? What thoughts do you consider when pairing artwork to rooms within your home?

Thank you so much for this lovely post, Katie!!!!

Very nice pairings. Actually when it comes to art I never stop and think. It is what comes naturally, it is like the painting calling for the room or vice versa. They find each other.
