Photography

Anyone can take a picture, but there’s something truly special in an artist’s ability to frame and capture the heart and soul of a scene. Williams-Sonoma Home’s collection of decorative framed photography provides a wealth of aesthetically pleasing wall decor for your sophisticated home. We offer several different styles of photography, from modern abstractions to crisp, classic snapshots. Whether you prefer black and white or color, you’ll find several different choices that appeal to your unique sense of style. From manmade geometry to the delicate curves of the natural world, our photographs focus on the spectacular capture of everyday beauty.


Photography is a versatile style of decor that works fabulously in many different settings. It’s easy to imagine a sleek urban penthouse with a large, moody black-and-white photo perched above its clean-lined sofa, but that same photograph could look just as good in a more ornate room, such as a traditional formal dining room. There’s a timeless quality to photography that makes it an especially versatile art form. Something in the representational nature of this medium recalls both the spirit of the avant garde and the skill of the old masters, allowing homeowners of all kinds to use the same kinds of images in different contexts with great success.


Our photographs may come as solo works or as part of a photo essay series on a particular subject. From close-up explorations of wild animal beauty to panoramic landscape views, you’ll find many different subjects on offer in this section. Our photographs are all expertly set in attractive frames that protect and enhance these beautiful images. Some frame jobs include a mat to add further drama to the photo arrangement, while others dispense with the mat and use thin-sided frames to let the photograph stand out in bold clarity. In both cases, we use subtle frames that let the image shine through as the main focus of the presentation.


Photography displays well with practically any type of home decor. If you have a room in your home that needs a little extra something on the walls, look through our photography collection and see what we have to offer. Photographs fit in alongside paintings, mirrors, wall sculptures, sconces and printed wallpaper. As long as you choose an image that works well, you’ll find photographic success for your home. The photographs you choose don’t have to match perfectly – they might add something entirely different or pick up some abstract elements that balance and blend just right.


This carefully curated selection of photographic art includes many gems that make fantastic gifts for friends and loved ones. A stunning photograph makes a thoughtful gift for anyone moving into a new phase of life. Whether it’s for a wedding, college graduation or housewarming, your photographic gift can capture a spirit of joy and optimism for what’s coming next for the recipients. These photographs also include options that are sure to please someone who’s particularly hard to shop for – even the most skeptical art critics tend to love the realistic beauty offered by an expertly composed photograph.


Thanks to its perfect balance of modern decorative power and traditional representational appeal, photography is an easy art form to incorporate into your home decor scheme. Try using photographs to decorate your entryway, bedroom or dining room – you may be surprised by how much you love the crisp clarity and mysterious narrative power of an expertly crafted photo. We carefully choose the best images and print them on archival quality paper to ensure a long life of enjoyment for these beautiful images. Whether you choose a single photo or an entire series, we’re confident that you’ll love what you see.
