These 7 Artworks Are Perfect for That Corner, Gap, or Other Hard-to-Decorate Space in Your Home
These uber-small-scale and ultra-skinny artworks from the Artnet Gallery Network will look perfect in your home's quirkiest spaces.
Are you looking for art for all the wrong places?
Sometimes the idiosyncratic corners and crevices of our homes look bare and boring on their own, but more traditionally scaled works simply won’t fit. Luckily, the Artnet Gallery Network is home to thousands upon thousands of artworks of all shapes and sizes.
For those of you seeking that “just right” addition to your home, we’ve handpicked a few super small, asymmetrical, and ultra-skinny artworks that will add some color to a variety of quirky spaces.
Over a Doorway
This red-and-white peppermint-striped sculpture by Daniel Buren will add the perfect accent to narrow spaces above a doorway or mantle place.
This vivid artwork can add a splash of dazzling color to a compact space. Made of pigmented polyurethane, its asymmetrical shape means it won’t look out of place in an unconventional space, for instance, if you’re hanging on pesky sloping walls or in a space with uneven floors.
For a Narrow Wall
Artist Heidi Spector’s artworks are characterized by their geometric planes of brilliant color. This tall-and-bright panel would make a fun addition to a narrow space like between doorways or in a hallway corridor.
A Sculpture for a Small Shelf
Sometimes apartments and houses come with inexplicable ledges and shelves that look out of place all on their own. This bronze sculpture, whose title translates to “in secret,” is roughly palm-sized, and would make a dreamy addition to a bedroom.
Energize a Corner
Running out of space for hanging art on your walls? Turn to a spare corner and add one of Lorenz Friedrich’s tiny sculptures of figures walking, resting, and otherwise going about their business. Visitors will be delighted by the unexpected surprise.
Minimalism’s ethos is less is more, so littler must be better too, right? While artist McKay Otto creates luminous large works that radiate pastel tones, he also devotes his time to super-small-scale creations that pack a petite-sized punch.
A Teeny-Tiny Photograph
Vintage photographs are a wonderful option for those looking for small-scale works with history. This untitled 19th-century photograph shows a woman admiring herself in the mirror on her vanity, and would make an ideal addition to a bedroom or, if you’re lucky enough, a walk-in closet.
