Where in Singapore can you buy affordable art for your home? How do you know what to look for? Should you choose a big painting or a photograph, or look at several smaller pieces? Artwork can be added to your home easily, and it can turn four bare walls into a homely and interesting space. But it sometimes feels difficult making the right choice. We spoke to Naazli Somjee from WTP – The Furniture Company and asked her how to choose the perfect piece for you.
The gorgeous artworks stocked by WTP cover plenty of periods, mediums and styles – from mixed-media paintings, photographs and colourful prints, to elegant drawings and illustrations. Buying art can be a great investment. It will last a lifetime and also makes a statement about your style.
What are your top tips for readers who may be considering buying art?
Make sure it’s a good fit and remember the practicalities. One good idea is to take a photograph of the room and bring it into the store. Take measurements of the walls, or even the furniture in the room, as it will help you visualise the piece before you buy.
Set a budget. It’s even more important when it comes to art as there is an emotional connection with a certain piece. We want our clients to purchase something they will love looking at every day.
What services do you offer your customers to help them buy the right piece of art?
If you have images and dimensions of the room where you’re looking to hang a piece of art, our team can advise you on what size would work best in that room. They’re also happy to suggest styles and colours to complement your existing pieces.
What price do your pieces start from?
Our pieces start from $290 and go up to $1,750 depending on the material and size. So, they’re definitely affordable!
