“Britto’s unique, vibrant artwork brings memorable designs to homes both for lighting and décor,” said Dennis Swanson, founder and CEO of Lamps Plus. “I’ve been a longtime Romero Britto admirer and have one of his pieces on my office wall that I purchased during my travels. Britto’s artwork is dramatic and adds the perfect accents to room colors.”

“Art tells a story on a surface or sculpture but also a piece can bring so much joy, passion and enthusiasm to other surfaces that tell stories and bring the aesthetic alive,” said Britto. “My art uses bright colors, lines and shapes for beauty and inspiration. Adding my art to designs will bring so much vibrancy to the home.”

The Britto designs from Lamps Plus are intended to offer unique expressions to augment the interior design of homes and apartments.

According to Lori Dennis, Lamps Plus brand ambassador and interior designer: “Against a white wall or sofa, the Britto artwork creates a vibrant statement that sings with on-trend style. The colors and patterns give a room a theatrical, whimsical style that is popular in design right now.”

Lamps Plus has been successful offering products with the artwork of other world renowned artists, including Brandon Ragnar Johnson and Thomas Kinkade.
