Give your loved ones a Christmas gift that they’ll always remember (and hang on their wall).
They say Christmas is the season of giving – and the best kind of gifts are those that have longevity. For a gift that counts, make it a statement art piece that can adorn the intimate space of a bedroom or give a welcome splash of colour to the living room. Here’s why we’ve been seriously browsing at Lumas, a gallery home to an expansive range of photo wall art.
It’s not likely you’ll walk into another home and see the same piece.
If you’re going to buy someone an art piece, you’ll want it to be something different. Because the works on display are hand signed limited editions (which start at $599) and typically within the range of just 75 to 150 prints, you’ll score gifting points for individuality.
Investment pieces don’t have to break the bank.
Holiday season marks new releases – and this gallery sweetening the deal with a sale. With 15% off, we reckon you’ll be tempted to do some shopping of your own. And if you feed off the adrenaline of last-minute shopping, you’ll be glad to hear the sale runs until 24 December.
Keep an eye out for under-the-radar talent.
The gallery doesn’t just show love to established photographers. Pieces by up-and-coming stars from major art institutions are also included in the 3,000 works by 250 artists. You could be purchasing a piece by an emerging artist with the potential to explode in popularity in a couple of years.
Someone in the know has done the legwork for you.
Newbies to the art scene, there’s no need to do frantic Googling to find out if your piece has cred. The collection (both in store and online) is constantly updated and expanded, and carefully curated by highly qualified art experts – so regardless of the photo you choose, know that it’s been pre-selected by someone with a good eye.
You’ll never overstay your welcome in this gallery.
Lumas gallery first opened in Paragon Orchard in 2015, and is just one of over 40 around the world. The first gallery opened in Berlin’s Hackescher Markt in 2004, but since then thousands of artworks have found homes in cities such as New York, London and Melbourne.
Each space is designed to look like a cosy home (of someone with impeccable taste, of course), so guests don’t feel alienated in an impersonal gallery. It’s a shopping experience that you’ll want to take your time with.
It’s a gift that they will always remember.
The best kind of presents are those that the recipient appreciates every day. Gifting your loved ones a carefully thought-out piece of artwork tells them that you’ve made the effort to choose something that suits their taste and their home. Plus, you’ll get constant bragging rights whenever you point out your present in their living room.
