Your foyer is the space that greets your visitors and welcomes you home each day, setting the mood for the rest of your home. Whether you have an open foyer with room for an oversized sculpture or a hallway fit for a powerful painting, enhance your entryway with art that reflects your personality and makes a welcoming first impression.
As transitional spaces, foyers are an ideal display area for large-scale, impactful art that captures the viewer’s attention as they pass by. Our curators had a particular eye on large-scale art that captivates, including ephemeral abstract paintings by Terri Dillingfascinating geometric works by Melissa Taylorand pastoral landscape photography by Vietnam Ha Tran. These works draw the viewer in, a fitting quality for art meant to welcome guests into your home. If you’re working with an open space, vertically oriented sculptures like the collectible ceramic totems from Cristina Figarolacan direct the gaze inwards and upwards and increase the feeling of airiness.
For 3D artwork, make sure you place it in a secure location that will not impede passage through the entryway. Since foyers tend to be flooded with light, make sure your flat artwork, such as drawings or photographs, is framed behind UV-safe glass and that your paintings have been given a protective varnish by the artist.
