I love bold artwork – and using words as art is a great way of making a statement. It’s an in-your-face approach of getting a message across or just a fun way to decorate a wall. Whatever the motive, here are some ideas of how to use words (or text) as art.

Dutch designer Maarten Baas has quite the imagination. I was totally blown away when I saw his work. He is so talented and creative that Moooi adopted his Smoke designs and his furniture has been bought by museums and collectors such as Philippe Starck. Did I mention he is only 29 years old?

CLAY FURNITURE: Industrial clay, hand-modeled on top of metal ‘skeletons’, surface painted with colored lacquer.
“HEY, CHAIR, BE A BOOKSHELF!”
All kinds of products became a bookshelf, coated in P.U. coating.
I love seeing how people group objects together to form a vignette. Whether you do it with objects similar in colour or objects of the same form or just plopping a bunch of knickknacks down on top of a dresser, I like to think of it as art. And it’s something you can switch around often to keep things interesting in your home. I know – I do it ALL THE TIME.
