This Art-For-Hire Company By a London Interiors Stylist is a Genius Idea
As an interiors stylist, Laura Fulmine (of epic color-blocked London apartment fame) was constantly on the hunt for license-free art that could easily be photographed and shared — a deeply frustrating task made even harder by more stringent recent copyright laws. So she did what any reasonable person in 2019 might do: She started a company that would offer the exact thing she had always been searching for. Called M.A.H., or Modern Art Hire, the new company features an enviable roster of artists — like Naomi Clark, John Booth, Camille Walala, Laurie Maun, Justine Ashbee, Emily Forgot, and Nicolas Burrows — who have either provided works from their own archives or pieces that have been especially commissioned for the company, license-free.
“The idea is to cover all avenues of art hire,” explains Fulmine. “So interior designers can hire for projects they need photographing, art directors and stylists can hire for shoots, films, and events and then we also are offering longer-term hires for offices, hotels, restaurants, and interior designers — or to the general public!” We’re partial to the more colorful works by Naomi Clark and Jonathan Lawes, as well as these sculptures by Anna Beam, but as you can see in the photos below, there’s something for almost every palette — no pun intended.
