IMAX artisans from around the world create statement pieces in every style.
For an easy and relatively inexpensive way for consumers to refresh the look of a room, wall decor is the go-to decorative accessory. For furniture stores and retailers, it’s an easy add-on ticket item that doesn’t take up a lot of real estate and at IMAX, it’s one of our favorite product categories.
We constantly challenge our artisans and craftsmen to push their creativity to the next level and they never disappoint. This allows us to offer a diverse selection of wall decor including oil paintings, dimensional art, wall clocks, mirrors and handmade paper art, for every lifestyle. Recently Arda Bulak, Vice President of Marketing, accompanied our buying team to several of our wall decor suppliers to get a look behind the scenes.
“It was an incredible experience to see the artists working,” Arda shared. “Each painting truly is a work of art. What was even more striking were the boisterous personalities and fun work environment. Many of the artists have worked for years, creating countless works of art hanging in the homes of consumers.”
Like any artist’s studio, the facilities were full of canvases, drying racks and lots, and lots of brushes, cans and tubes of paint. Once the artist’s original painting is approved, they then recreate the work over and over, hanging finished canvases from ceiling racks to dry. Color, texture and beauty abound here, where hand-painted works of art are accessible to everyone.
“We often receive goods in the mail or pick them up from a local retailer and forget that these works of art have traveled across the world and come from the hands of true artists,” Bulak said. “Here at IMAX we take pride in bringing the work of artisans all over the world into your home.”
