Leading Online Destination for Wall Art Establishes Industry Collaboration with Premier Organization for Design Professionals, Provides Artwork for ASID Headquarters

SAN FRANCISCO (Mar 23, 2010) — Art.com Inc., the world’s largest online retailer of wall art, today announced a new partnership with the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the leading organization for interior design professionals. The relationship will allow art.com to better serve the professional interior design community as a source for high-quality wall art and framing services.

As part of this new collaboration, art.com recently refreshed the look of ASID headquarters in Washington, D.C. with 43 framed prints that showcase the retailer’s vast selection.  Art.com’s design experts worked with ASID staff to create a unique theme for the building’s three floors and outfit each floor with corresponding artwork.  The selected artwork includes a variety of prints showcasing well-known, antique interior spaces on the first floor; a collection of prints illustrating bold, colorful entrance ways for the second floor; and an assortment of vintage maps representing ASID’s 49 member chapters on the third floor.

“Art.com is pleased to partner with ASID in order to better serve the wall art needs of the interior designer community and their clients.  ASID is a highly-respected organization, and designers are among art.com’s most important and loyal customers,” said Gary Takemoto, senior vice president of merchandising at Art.com Inc.  “Having art.com products featured so prominently at ASID headquarters is a strong testament to the high quality of our artwork, and we welcome the opportunity to have more designers experience art.com’s superior value proposition.”
