Pulling the trigger on a piece of fine art takes conviction and serious moolah, especially if it’s a work by a famous artist. And even if you’re saving cash by hunting through thrift stores and art festivals for your wall art collection, there’s still the expense of framing and hassle of hanging to deal with. Now a new technology is hoping to transform the way you decorate your home forever, while also upping your fine art knowledge.
Meural is an interactive digital frame that gives you access to over 30,000 priceless works of art from around the world. That means budding and broke art curators can start a digital collection early, while they’re waiting for their bank accounts to catch up with their aspirations.
You can control your Meural with an app on your phone or through Meural’s website, letting you re-decorate your living room without ever grabbing a hammer or drill. Meural is especially exciting for those of us who are too fickle (#guilty) to ever decide what we should hang above the couch. With Meural’s unique features, you can even upload your fave photos. Need a break from Mona Lisa? You can swap in your BFF’s smiling mug with just a wave of your hand.
Meural’s partnerships with institutions like The New York Public Library and offerings from esteemed museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art make getting bored with your wall art a thing of the past. Priced at $600, Meural isn’t exactly cheap, but when you compare it to the cost of purchasing just one work of art, it becomes more of a steal. We’re hoping they invent a smaller version for our cubicles next!
