There’s never been a great how-to when it comes to starting a personal art collection. One-of-a-kind pieces are always either wildly expensive or so exclusive that you need a fine art dealer to access them. Design Miami wants to change that. Its new online store, DM/BX, has furniture, books, tableware, and sculptures all curated by the same team that works on the renowned yearly show.
The marketplace, with contemporary pieces ranging from $50 to $2,500, was created as a resource for art lovers who are just starting their collections, especially those with tighter budgets who can’t make a yearly pilgrimage to the fall fair. Whether you’re looking to start your own personal curation or just want a small addition for your entry console, there’s something for all design enthusiasts. The best part? Our favorite pieces are all under $100.
The Hot Pink Sculpture
Ukrainian designer Sasha Topolnytska made her collection of soft sculptures to spark joy. Use the bright fuchsia Misha as a conversation starter to display on your coffee table or a throw pillow for maximum comfort.
The Painterly Plates
Ceramist Anna Badur’s watercolor-style platter is left to the whims of the firing process. Overlapping glazes, in a palette of pastels, have a mind of their own when placed in the kiln, ensuring each plate is wholly unique.
The Rippled Glassware
Inspired by 1930s architecture, Agustina Bottoni’s glassware is handcrafted in Italy. The geometric ridges on the base elevate even the most casual of happy hours.
The Graphic Bath Mat
Studio Proba is known for its use of bright color combinations and geometric patterns, and founder Alex Proba’s latest design is no exception. The Island Bathmat 03, with its saturated hues and fanciful bloblike shapes, will spruce up any drab bathroom floor.
The Versatile Vase
Count on Faye Toogood to take a classic concept and add a twist. This vessel (use it as a pitcher, jug, or vase) modernizes traditional Delftware. Because of the nature of the glaze application (it is painted on a rough canvas and then adhered directly to the form), each piece is unique. Your home will feel like a well-curated gallery before you know it, and you won’t have even spent a small fortune.
