The best online resources for glassware, a one-of-a-kind chair, even a painter.
lumas.com: Your options used to be limited when buying photographs. Pay up at a gallery, or opt for a mass-produced photo at a museum gift shop. Art collectors Stefanie Harig and Marc Ullrich founded this site to give you something in between―hand-signed photos from established and emerging artists printed in limited batches (typically 75 to 100) and priced from about $100 to $700 each. It’s “the best online resource for inexpensive art,” says New York City interior designer Brad Ford.
20x200.com: This site lets you search by how much you’re willing to spend. Prints come in five sizes and five corresponding price points ($20, $50, $200, $500, $2,000); the higher the price, the more limited the edition. “It’s a smart way to collect art,” says DIY Network host Amy Devers.
