In our “Brand Spotlight” series, we’ll be showing off some of our favorite brands and help you get to know the many names that you’ll find in your 3D designs! Next up, meet Chelsea Art Studio.
Meet the Brand: Chelsea Art Studio
Chelsea Art is best described in two words: quality and innovation. With over 40 years of experience, they are an industry leader in canvas art. All of the pieces from Chelsea Art Studio are made to order and are never mass-produced—meaning each piece of art is 100% unique to you.
They are known for partnering with both up-and-coming and established artists to create their pieces. But they also have their own in-house art team of extremely talented individuals who push the boundaries of color, textures, and medium to create extremely innovative designs. Each of their pieces are uncompromising, gallery-quality works of art.
Because they partner with such a wide variety of artists, the art they sell is made in a plethora of styles and aesthetics—from traditional art to watercolor paintings, animal prints, abstract art, and ethereal giclee prints. You can really find something in every style!
What They’re Known For
Chelsea Art Studio is known for their artist collaborations, as we mentioned above. But they’re also renowned for using innovative framing techniques, and all of their pieces come professionally framed or hand-stretched. For framed pieces, they source unique and high-end frames, which elevate the look of these already stunning works of art.
Why We Love Them
One of the many things we love about Chelsea Art Studio is that each piece is made to order and embellished by hand. So, it’s almost like having custom artwork in your home—without the custom price tag. These are pieces you’ll want to see up close; they have so much detail and depth and truly feel like pieces of fine art.
The pieces in the Chelsea Art Studio collection are so diverse and thoughtfully created—from the matting material to the paper quality and the overall attention to detail. Each piece feels so considered and unique.
Here’s what Meg Donovan, Modsy’s senior director of product development and sourcing, has to say about why she loves Chelsea Art Studio: “When I’m looking to refresh my home’s decor, I tend to swap out some throw pillows or shuffle around decorative accessories. However, every so often I decide on a bolder statement: a piece of art I want front and center in my bedroom or living room to set the tone of my space and to help me focus my thoughts for the year.
“If I had an unlimited budget, I would buy one-of-a-kind pieces directly from artists and galleries. Unfortunately, that is not my reality or the reality of most people. Therefore, I look for the highest quality items that I can afford and for pieces that will make a statement in my home. My go-to source for pieces like these is Chelsea Art. I love working with them for Modsy and for my own home.
There are so many reasons to love Chelsea Art. But here are a few quick hitters of reasons Meg loves them!
All Chelsea Art pieces feature:
- Original art motifs and imagery
- Hand-painted and/or hand-embellished details
- Hand-stretched canvases
- Giclee printing
- High-quality glass and even acrylic in their framed art—both set in handmade, high-quality frames.
- Gallery-quality paper and linen options for non-canvas-based pieces.
- Stunning photography that is present in various mediums, including painted/printed glass.
With all their beautiful, unique pieces, the hardest decision you’ll face is how to pick just one. Keep reading to check out a few of our stylists’ top picks from the collection!

I See What You Hear
This high-quality giclee print is gilded with gold accents and framed under glass. It has a hand-brushed look, which we love, with incredible texture and an organic feeling. Abstract and a bit eclectic, this piece would fit perfectly in a modern home.

Jumble of Coral II
This art print by Sara Brown is a playful and slightly whimsical botanical drawing of seaweed. We love it on its own, but also works well in a trio of prints with other pieces by the same artist. This print is perfect for rustic, classic, and coastal spaces.

Spotted Stalker V
Anything animal print is a “yes” in our book—and this print is no exception. This engraved leopard feels chic and glam, with a hint of old-world charm. And the frame only adds to this vibe! Try it in a traditional space, or in a gallery wall for a more eclectic look. It would also be fun in a kid’s room!

Trace in Shapes II
This large-scale wall art has a hand-painted look, giving it the look of a custom piece of art. It features a non-objective design, which is perfect for a modern or minimal home. (“Non-objective” simply means a piece of art is abstract or non-representational. It’s typically geometric, like this piece, and attempts to convey a sense of simplicity.) Not only will this piece create a statement in your home, but with the swatch of turmeric color that it features—a popular hue right now—you’ll also be very on-trend.
Frosted Feathers I
Talk about a unique work of art! This print is giving us some major Baroque vibes. But, while the style it’s created in is very traditional, it features a modern subject. Because of that, this print would be at home in a variety of spaces—from traditional to modern, glam, and eclectic. Un-framed, this print comes in gallery-wrapped canvas giclee with hand-applied textures.Shop This Room

Modern Improvisation IV
We love the organic shapes and minimal design of this modern and neutral piece. With hints of turmeric, yellow, and gold, the color scheme is very on-trend. But the minimal design gives it a timeless look. This piece would make a stunning statement on its own, but it’s also available in a series.
