Let’s be honest, there’s really no excuse for blank, boring walls. Thanks to curated, online galleries and e-commerce collabs, you can now start your very own art collection, without even leaving your apartment. And with so many newcomers on the art scene, getting an original work doesn’t have to cost a fortune. So, when we’re on the hunt for a statement piece or that final touch to a gallery wall, we skip the big box stores and head to these online destinations.

Tappan Collective: We’ve all oo’d and ahh’d over the adorable pink interiors of Alfred Coffee’s newest endeavor, Alfred Tea. Well, thanks to Tappan Collective, you can now recreate their fiercely chic gallery wall…and that’s just one of the many capsule collections that they offer. Check out hundreds of one-of-a-kind picks from emerging artists here.

Sugarlift: Sugarlift knows how intimidating the art world can be, for artists and collectors alike. That’s why they match you with your very own art expert to help you discover the best that they have to offer. Oh, and did we mention that this service is free?

Artspace: With some of the best known names in art under their belt, Artspace is your one stop shop for everything from contemporary prints, to artful pieces of decor. They also have an impressive bookstore, so consider your coffee table dreams a reality.

Minted: Not only does Minted offer some of the most on-trend pieces around (hello, desert-themed photography), they also let you fully customize the canvas size and frame. And with partnerships like West Elm and Pottery Barn, finding the right piece to complement the rest of your decor is simple and fun!

Saatchi Art: No matter your price range, geographic location, or taste in artwork, Saatchi has you covered. Everything is hand-selected by their professional curators, plus their free online advisory service will guarantee that you find the perfect works for your space every time.

Urban Outfitters: Urban Outfitters has been our go-to for everything from reasonably-priced bedding, to gag gifts, to band tees, for as long as we can remember, but did you know that they also boast a wide assortment of on-trend tapestries and on-trend prints? Well, now you do.

Artfully Walls: Abstract prints for under $20? We’ll take it! Artfully Walls allows you to filter by color, subject matter, style, medium, and price, so finding the perfect piece for your space, at the right price is a breeze.

Etsy:If you like to keep your options open when it comes to art and design, then Etsy has the endless supply that you’re looking for. We’re currently coveting Clare Elsaesser’s whimsical prints and Hayley Mitchell’s abstract portraits.

This painting of chic girls in their bathing suits remind us of a scene in a summer chick flick.

ArtStar: What sets ArtStar apart from other online art sources? Well, for starters, they partner with artists to produce limited edition collections that are sold exclusively on the site. And just like purchasing from a real gallery, they provide authenticity cards for every sale.

Uprise Art: Original art without the sticker shock? Look no further than Uprise Art. With the ability to buy pieces outright, or opt for monthly, interest-free installments, anyone can have their very own, curated art collection.

This contemporary artwork stimulates our minds with unique shapes and colors.
