Mosaic art is a form of art that goes back as far back as the 3rd millennium BC.

The Aesthetic of Abstract Mosaic Art

It is often challenging to create an aesthetic with a huge abstract artwork and the furnishing altogether. Keep in mind that large abstract artwork is a rising trend! In that case, elements in a mosaic like line, color, texture, shape and pattern, can set the tone. For instance, this Tutti Frutti abstract mosaic reproduction is an eclectic artwork that combines many elements.Tutti Frutti by Ricki Mountain - Abstract Mosaic Reproduction by Mozaico

For such artwork, it only makes sense to structure your furniture around the mosaic. So, one would go with light orange couches and a minimal coffee table.

Let’s not forget the plain throws. This brings us to our second point: Should one design spaces around at or vice versa?

What Comes First, Art or Furniture?

It depends on the client really. But, ideally, always start with art, especially if you are working with a statement artwork that demands attention. Here’s why: we are more likely to keep art for a longer period of time compared to furniture! Research shows that it’s rare for homeowners to keep furniture for more than 10 years. However, art will be with us for the rest of our lives, especially when it’s mosaic art.

That being said, one can recreate endlessly around an eclectic and chaotic mosaic like our Vigorous Formation modern mosaic art.

How do Abstract Mosaics Fuse the Interior Space All Together?

Many fail to note the importance of a statement mosaic, especially one which is on the larger scale. Firstly, small mosaic art designs add intimacy to any room and are more inviting. However, large mosaic art is very handy in more spacious rooms when placed in the right place. In such cases, the mosaic artwork bridges the gap between the spacious room and the human scale decor. In this indoor pool, our Wave and Ocean mosaic creates a harmonious fusion between the sky and the pool. Also, it fills up the space between the room and the ceiling opening.Ocean and Waves - Abstract Mosaic Art by Mozaico

What Difference Does Lighting Make?

Don’t overthrow the power of lighting in illuminating an artwork or setting the mood of a room. A natural and yellow light that’s subtle creates more of an inviting mood. Moreover, it allows the elements of a mosaic to shine as well as your furnishings.

In addition, a designer’s choice of paint color is a vital element. Going for a darker paint behind an artwork allows the mosaic to absorb more light and become more prominent. The opposite is valid as well.
