Creativity is actually everywhere. Whether it’s a custom made wall hanging in a local cafe or beautiful blue velvet couch at your favorite hotel, it’s amazing how many unique elements of art and design we pass by everyday. However, when these things catch our eye, we’re left wondering: “Who made it?” “What’s the story?” and “Where can I find more?”
Wescover connects the people, places, and stories behind design objects that impact our everyday lives. Here, each item has context like you’d find in a gallery—from who the original Creator is, to what the story was behind it, to where you can see their work in the real world.
Artisan objects are created with care—from the imaginations of our local creators, they take shape in their studios and, once they’re sold, they’re a part of our stories too. These creator-made works are exceptional elements within our lives. If you have a space you’d like to share or creator you’d like to support, contact us.
" I was always inspired by the stories of passionate creators, the trouble is finding them - It almost feels like a secret. Once I uncover one, I feel the urge to let everyone know about them as they deserve it."
" We leave our mark on the world every day, this is the story objects around us tell. The more I listen, the better I can hear it. We are building Wescover so we can all share that experience."
" Design can be subjective, the important part is to bring the creators to the front of the stage and let them shine."
" Design hunting is my favorite part of travel. I love getting to know a place through its creators, sharing their work, and being reminded of them in my own spaces."
" I find myself inspired by the beauty in my daily encounters. Whether I'm in a local cafe, a neighbor's Victorian apartment, or surrounded by nature, these places make me want to leave my own mark on the world. The way I see it, art is an expression of life and the human experience. Life itself is art."
"I'm always seeking out opportunities to surround myself with beautiful art and design. I love how unique spaces and works of art can change your mood, provide you with confidence or inspire a project."
"I believe everyone is unique to their creativity, and art is a vehicle helping express that. We are all artists shaping our world the way we see fit."
"I'm so inspired by artists and creators -- everything from their innate abilities and well-honed skills, their processes and tools, their passion, and the finished product -- it blows my mind and brings me joy. I've always been one to notice beautiful art around me, but what I love about Wescover is that I can get to know the artist, and I can discover artists' work all over the world that I may never have had the opportunity to see otherwise."
"There is no such thing as art and design out of context. I believe in the importance of a creator's story and how it informs their work. Exploring and learning about the context of a piece fuels my own art and design practice. The stories of others inspire me to create meaningful work."
"As a content creator, I challenge myself every day to observe the world around me. Not just the grand events, not just the standout elements of my environment, but the small minutiae that can be beautiful if we take the time to appreciate it."
" Art and design are my lifestyle. As an architect involved in historic preservation, I like to explore artwork, design details, and any elements that combine modern with traditional styles. I see them in everything that surrounds me and am inspired by new creators who fill our interior spaces with these things."
" Every time I roam around, I can't help but admire each people's ingenuity. Their designs reflect their passion and artistry that it motivates me to improve my craft in discovering more about them and their creations."
" I am always fascinated with people's creativity. I tend to get inspired by their creation and their talent. The beauty of things around us is someone else's masterpiece, shared to inspire and uplift each one of us."
"Encountering these arts in their different forms lets me see the world in a new light, and it gives me the freedom to go places where I wouldn't or may not be able to go to in my regular life. I feel very privileged to be part of the Wescover team because this has given me opportunities to experience different works of art."
