Art.com is the world’s largest online retailer in the art and wall décor category, and the addition of its two million curated images – including a growing exclusive assortment – will create an even richer, deeper customer experience across our home category. Take Jenn for example:
Jenn recently bought a home with her husband and young son. Their new place increased their living space, with taller ceilings, and a hardware and color scheme that is way more modern than Jenn’s more traditional aesthetic. They’re on a budget but want to infuse some of their personality and warmth into the space before the holidays hit. Where does Jenn start? The walls.
Art.com’s wide-ranging assortment, from affordable and chic posters for your first apartment to limited edition prints and loft art pieces for your new home, helps customers like Jenn, make their house a home without breaking the bank. The wall also allows us to create even more personalized experiences for her in the future, as we now have a better understanding of design aesthetics, color preferences, complementary pieces – like rugs, furniture, etc. – and, even insight into the size of the space.
We plan to operate the assets of Art.com as a standalone and complementary site – and then add their wide-ranging assortment to Walmart.com, Jet.com, and Hayneedle.com. This announcement is just another example of how we’re establishing Walmart.com as a specialty retail destination for the home – giving customers the inspiration and confidence to make a beautiful home possible for everyone. I’m so excited to welcome Art.com as a part of that mission.
