Desenio Wall Art Review
Wall art can go a long way to brighten up the rooms in your house; the Desenio brand is considered one of the best companies in the industry, offering thousands of different prints and frame sizes. In this blog post review, I take a look at the whole process – from ordering online, all the way to putting them together upon receiving your order. Read on for more!
Desenio, who were founded in 2010 is based in Stockholm, and their modus operandi is to offer posters and prints which are unmistakably Scandinavian. The brand had the idea that sophisticated wall art should not be out of reach because of exponential costs and instead be available to everyone no matter their budget. Desenio boasts a massive reach of availability across 33 countries with their vast assortment of items, which are continually updated to keep their range fresh and to ensure you have something that will fit into your home decor.
Choosing Your Print
When it comes to choosing your prints, you will be astounded with a vast array of choice! Almost 5000 different designs are available to choose from, ranging from fashion, scenery, architecture, retro, modern and more! One of my particular favourite categories was the black & white section; the images just stood out to me and are undeniably timeless – relevant just as much now as they will be in the future.
When I began to search for my chosen selection, it took me a good couple of hours to finally narrow it down to exactly what I wanted. Even then, my task was not complete; then I was presented with different measurements for each of the prints, which depending on the design, are offered in various sizes to suit different wall space and tastes.
To complement the prints, Desenio offers a variety of frames which as to be expected are available in different materials which will offer you even more options (and much more time spent browsing and choosing!) when pairing up against the pictures you have chosen. Each frame uses shatterproof acrylic glass for safety which has the additional benefit of being lightweight, allowing ease when attaching them to the walls. I have listed the frame sizes below for reference –
- 13x18cm 5 x 7 inch
- 21x30cm 8 ¼ x 11 ¾ inch
- 30x40cm 11 ¾ x 15 ¾ inch
- 40x50cm 15 ¾ x 19 ⅝ inch
- 50x50cm 19 ¾ x 19 ¾ inch
- 50x70cm 19 ¾ x 27 ½ inch
- 70x100cm 27 ½ x 39 ¼ inch
- 100x150cm 39 x 59 inch
My order was processed swiftly, and my parcel arrived in only a few days, which was a welcome surprise! All of the prints and frames were packaged in a large and sturdy cardboard box. Once opened, I removed the individual items ready to assemble. The entire process was a simple affair; we laid out each of the different sized frames and prints ready to use. We removed the protective film and cardboard edge protectors from the frames, unclipped the tabs on the reverse allowing us to slide the posters between the backing board and the glass front, when in place, we shut the frame and re-clipped the tabs closed. Once each of the different sized pictures was completed, it was now time to attach them to the wall. Each of the backs of the frames includes at least two hook systems allowing easy attachment, incidentally, the smaller sized models also include a flap which will enable them to stand freely on a desk or table. Finally, the completed pictures attached to the wall easily , slipping into standard wall mounts without too much trouble.
After the assembly and wall fitting was complete, it was time to stand back and admire our handy work. The prints and frames looked beautiful positioned in the room, and I am more than happy with the designs I choose for this review. You can see how this could turn into somewhat of an obsession, checking back for more you can add to your collection of growing Scandinavian wall art!
In conclusion, my experience with the Desenio brand was exemplary; the whole process from ordering to construction was simple and enjoyable yet also satisfying. The brand offers a seemingly endless list of prints across an extensive range of unique categories, within a very reasonable price point allowing everyone the chance to own the brands particular iconic style of home wall decoration. I would happily recommend Desenio to family, friends and just about anyone who was looking to spruce up their home or even office.
