Dutch Luxury Design and the art market

Our society has changed and business innovation is also taking place in the art market. Increasingly, the demand-driven economy is gaining the upper hand over the supply-driven economy. The driving force behind this is change in buying motives and buying behaviour. In the old supply-based model, it was mainly about the comparative cost advantage; price was the weapon against competition. Nowadays, it is mainly about the choice of where to buy something, with social and environmental involvement being the main motivation for customers.

Creating opportunities

Creating opportunities for selling art in today's overcrowded and international market is an activity that demands more and more marketing. One of the reasons for this is that potential buyers first orientate themselves on the internet and are increasingly looking at platforms where a larger choice is presented. This makes it increasingly difficult for individual artists, who do their own marketing, to bring their art objects to the attention of the right audience. Moreover, this form of marketing is often based on the outdated supply model.

Our mission: To further develop the art platform of Dutch Luxury Design as a marketplace for artists, art lovers and -collectors.

Dutch Luxury Design invests in the infrastructure of an art platform as a marketplace. The driving force behind this is two-sided. On the one hand, aimed at generating economies of scale and options on the demand side; the customer side, on the other hand on functionality and network effects of the platform and findability in the market. Artists as well as art lovers and collectors can benefit from this.

We create opportunities for artists for their marketing and sales. By participating they get the space to exhibit themselves and their art objects, a large international market reach (in a segment that they otherwise cannot or hardly reach), they are part of a professional portfolio and they can focus their attention on their own work. Dutch Luxury Design supports the artists with marketing and sales.

We make it easy for new and experienced art lovers and collectors to discover and buy art with our wide and varied portfolio. They enjoy a (pre)selected offer with a wide variety (options to choose from), the possibility to see art objects of their choice 'in real life' at our gallery in Buren, personal guidance and advice (if desired ) and the benefits of a reliable party that guarantees payment and delivery.
