Tropical Cool

The sizable print (it’s 27" x 37") in bright, cheerful hues makes a big impact — one and done. A dark green bench with a caned top nods to the imagery in the art. For more vacation feel, there’s an orange pillow with palm fronds.

Modern Charm

Abstract shapes in the trio of prints and on the terrazzo-patterned bench pair playfully. The bold colors don’t totally match, and that’s a good thing — it looks more casual. White backgrounds tie them together.

Natural Luxe

Flowers, leaves and butterflies get fancy! The trick to making this mix of art live so nicely together: contrasting black-and-white backgrounds and just one style of frames. A mod bench, with a color cue taken from what’s on the wall, adds the fab.

Geometric Chic

When you want to go classic … but have a little fun, too. Four different color-block prints of shapes within shapes, along with a pillow that has a watercolor-esque pattern, invigorate a sleek leather bench. (See, even pillows can be artsy.) A small stack o’ books balances the whole scene.

Beachy Casual

Create your very own great escape. What better match for an ocean vista than a wood bench in a sandy shade? The art’s wood frame in a similar tone offers even more texture, while a seafoam green coat rack makes style waves.
