The gist? The shopper can customize, or "remaster" a variety of images culled from fine galleries and museums into lampshades, tile, prints... you name it!
Have you always loved this fine portrait of Queen Elizabeth I?
Well, you're in luck.., you can now transform it into "bespoke" blinds, tile, or lampshades!
Ahh, too bad copyrights and other such protections didn't exist in the 16th century!
I've been obsessing over backsplash tile for my kitchen reno, but I can't say as "Apostles Pulling the Net" is in the running...
So, I'm struggling, because this is a fun concept, but is it me, or is there something kind of exploitative in this premise? Are you, like me, surprised that institutions including the National Gallery have given over access to their inventory?
On the other hand, these lampshades are super cute :)
