Duende Curation is the creative culmination of interior designers and lifelong best friends, Rachel Harrison and Jennifer Scott. After nearly a decade of applying their eye for the beautiful to interior spaces, the duo recognized the need for a boutique-style niche platform for purchasing art. Their vision behind creating Duende is to offer an online gallery from which an entire space can be curated with meaningful art of mixed mediums, created by a variety of artists, while establishing a cohesive relationship between the pieces; their focus is to allow their clientele the comfort of knowing their selections have been professionally curated to effortlessly create striking collections within their homes or businesses.
"We have collaborated with a small group of inspiring artists, both fine artists and photographers, to present a select set of Limited Edition Prints all offered within a universal size & pricing platform. Our gathering of artists and chosen works have been curated from around the world to create a singularly cohesive collection, within which all the available prints work symbiotically together whether you choose one piece or many for your space. We mingle impactful art with the public, allowing the everyday collector to build their gallery based on a connection with each piece... we invite you to explore the 'Duende': the mysterious power of art to deeply move a person"
