Art For Your Home At Any Budget

August 5, 2022

In the words of Sondheim, “art isn’t easy…it’s a major decision” – and even though this line refers to the art of making art, one could also say that acquiring art isn’t exactly easy. It starts with knowing where to find the pieces you love that also fit your budget and might even increase in value. Despite the uneasiness that financial turbulence and price fluctuations can stir up, experts report that the art market has not only recovered from the impact of COVID, but sales are trending toward bullish. With the notion that prices will continue to rise, now just might be the time to start or expand your art collection. 

No matter what your budget might be, the art-loving concierge team of LIVunLtd put together this collection of a few of our favorite, trusted resources for buying, installing and even renting art.
