I was reminded yesterday of how cool IXXI wall graphics are when I walked into a friend's home and saw them covering the walls in a number of rooms. I blogged about their stock collection back in 2011, but they now make it easy to upload your own hi-res images and create big wall art out of them.

This 55.1" x 86.6" piece is a lovely and huge version of a classic painting, "Flowers in a Glass Vase" by J.Dsz. de Heem from the RijksMuseum.

Check out the other I uploaded below of a friend of mine as well. This will be 5' x 5', which is huge. It is much better to use a high res file at these big sizes, but you don't have to if you want it to be a impressionistic. The uploader will also warn you if your image is low resolution.

I love this company, which has built a business out of making it really easy to upload and order wall-ready versions of pics you take with your iPhone. Super fast turnaround, low prices and really lovely works make this a great go to source for your home.

There are a ton of great print sources out there (you can find a nice big list right here), but I thought I'd highlight this one classic shop that makes the For Like Ever poster still, now in new colorways.

Ok, this ONE is not cheap, but The Poster Museum is a great source for stunning vintage posters, most of which cost far less.

This is just one example of the high quality affordable art that Zatista is making available online since they started a few years ago. It's all original art online, baby.

LIFE Magazine may be defunct, but its photos live on in a joint partnership with Getty Images and its subsite Photos.com, you can buy all the old classic images to print yourself.

From LUMAS, another big online player, they have a ton of beautiful images ready for framing or just as prints for under $100.
