In collaboration with a prolific New York and Houston-based interior designer, Weingarten Art Group consultants curated a bold collection that dialogued with the elegant and maximalist style. The multi-year project began by learning about the client’s art collecting sensibilities. The young family was interested in investment artwork as well as in works that would compliment the complexity of the furnishings. We traveled to international art fairs, visited numerous galleries and accompanied them to many artist studios. The challenge became placing the extraordinarily specific selections while giving ample room for both the art and furnishings to shine.

The client’s penchant for art that mused on the natural world and scientific pursuits made a wonderful focus for the collection.
