When decorating a home, one consideration, after the placement of the furniture, will be what to hang on the walls. In addition to the traditional framed prints, it is important to add sculptures to a room as well. Sculptures in a room tend to break up the monotony of only having art on the walls. In reality, decorating with sculptures isn’t as daunting as you might think. It is likely that you already decorate with sculptures and do not realize it through the placement of figurines, knick-knacks, and plants. For those looking to take it to the next level, though, here are a few tips on ways to use this art form.

Focal Point

Every room needs a focal point. The talented interior designer draws the eye to one place in the room or another. In hallways, living, dining, and bedrooms, sculptures can be a focal point, adding substance to a room. For example, in a hallway, a sculpture can sit on a center table, and in a living room, one can take up space on a large wall.

Corner Piece

Adding a sculpture to a corner is also a great use of space. It can be a corner of a room or an outward corner between open rooms. While furniture may line the walls, a fitting sculpture on a table or pedestal can make that space meaningful.

Stopping Point

Some decorate with sculptures and wall art together. When paired together, a wall can become a place to stop and wonder. It can be a place to pause and think, as the two elements contrast or complement one another to create a statement or mood.

Completing Space

The overall tactic of decorating with sculptures is to spot what space in the room is instinctively lacking. What spot feels like something is missing? Where might a sculpture spruce up the look of a room? Beware of going overboard, but be sure that every point has meaning.

Reflecting Light

Light-filled rooms give a sense of refreshment and spaciousness to any space. To increase the lighting, one might add a mirror adjacent or opposite to a window, but did you know that a mirror can be a wall sculpture too? Zimmerman Fine Art offers mirror wall art by Yaacov Agam and many other sculptures.
