Chicago Artwork

I know that a lot of you don't know this but we, through a program that my mother Pat runs, let some local artists hang art on our walls. I think this is a great program for the artists and us we need the art and they need a place to hang some of it (a perfect relationship!).

We try and choose art that fits with most of our pieces and while we do sell some home theater seats we also sell much more contemporary furniture.  I think contemporary furniture is in our blood!  So we don't collect a commission on the pieces, we pay the artist directly for their work and we try and keep the prices down under $500 for the HUGE 5 foot by 5 foot paintings so we can stay in the price range of a discount Chicago Furniture warehouse operation.  I keep telling the artists the LOWER the price the better, let someone else enjoy your work inside of their home for a change. 

Almost none of this work is on our website, that just goes to show you how behind we are on updating it.  I'll do my best to get that working this week but until then, I took these pictures on my Iphone.  Take a look and tell me what you think:

I like the one on the top, it's two different canvases pushed together.

The picture below is two different pictures.  There's a top large one and then three smaller ones that are sold in a set.

The one above is HUGE, great for a big white wall, possibly a room with vaulted ceilings.  This is really a centerpiece.
