The joy of filling a new home with various pieces of art is an overwhelmingly personal experience. There's nothing like lining new walls with artworks that each hold an individual memory or emotion. Art performs a kind of story, a dot-to-dot of our experiences, and moving house is a significant part of that journey. There’s no better way to commemorate this big life step than with a sentimental work of art, so why not treat the new homeowner to a limited edition print in celebration?
Moving home is a big step. It involves upending the furniture arrangements, upsetting the dogs or cats and adjusting to the new normal. Teaspoons go walkabout, the lamp from your old house doesn’t quite work with the living room carpet and the new bedroom wallpaper is just a bit too floral. But once people have really settled into their new space, the thing that really makes a house feel like a home is art. This is why gifting art to another during this new chapter of life is so special and thoughtful.
Whether you’re purchasing for a family member or a close friend, why not think outside the box with this gift and present them with a work of art to add to their collection? With a work of art you’re not just giving a stunning gift, but a memory that’ll last forever.
So here are a variety of our favourite works to consider out of the range of prints we offer; slimming them down to just a few for you.
