Lumas photography gets it.  Oversized edgy prints organized by genre with framing options – this is all you need to add the final touches to your abode.  Hand signed originals that were produced in batches of 75-150 means these pieces are rare but affordable.  We especially like the “young art” category for the collector looking to invest.  $500 and Up BUY

Carter Kustera is under contract for Jonathan Adler to paint customized portraits.  You send in your photo and he paints your profile.  Best part is, you can customize the tagline underneath.  While Adler suggests the following for a mistress: “Tina – They’re not real, but they’re paid for” we may go for something less…well something less.  The dog can even have his own.  $450 BUY

3m 110 Pocket ProjectorThe reviews are in, and the 3M 110 Pocket Projector has beaten the Pico PK 101 to claim title to the best handheld projector.  What’s so cool about this?  A few things.  No fans means it is quiet, LEDs mean the bulbs last for 10,000 hours, and it projects images up to 50 inches.  That means you have a 50 inch TV in your palm.  You can put it in your home to project art onto a blank canvas, you can combine it with a PDA and laser keyboard to create the smallest laptop with the largest screen.  Possibilities are endless.  All this for only $302.

Legendary pioneer of grunge rock, Kurt Cobain, owned and used this guitar in his earliest days.  He rocked on this on demo tapes recorded in 1982 and 1985.  The bass comes with a photo of Kurt using it – but be prepared to hand over a pretty penny.  The guitar goes up for auction on November 24th and is expected to fetch around $60,000 – $80,000.  Might be a good addition as art on the wall.  If you appreciate music history – here’s your Christmas list.  $TBD BID

In major cities you probably know that lamp posts use vertical banners to advertise artist exhibitions at major museums. You can actually grab these from Betterwall.com. They purchase from nine major cities, so just to add a little more art to the Chuck Close hanging in your wall, make it the banner ad for the exhibition. You can even shop by color scheme, to fit it perfectly. $400-800. BUY

For a change, we’re highlighting something free. Who doesn’t like free? Mandolux is an online desktop art resource that we think is worthy of mentioning. The site offers artistic photographs as backgrounds for computers – and even offers them split for multiple monitors if you have them. All common screen sizes are below each image. You can even shrink them down for iPhone backgrounds, if you’re graphically inclined. Head on over and click “previous” to go through all prior art. $0. CLICK

Red Cross Medicine CabinetCappellini’s Medicine Cabinet was designed by Thomas Ericksson. The flap door is lined with a mirror and it is constructed of laquer metal. The only problem is it was such great design – it is now seen as an art piece, and part of the New York Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. The “piece” is from 1992 but the company is still selling them. Does all that justify a $650 pricetag? Depends on your priorities. BUY

Bring the outside in, without the insects. Z Gallerie’s Moss Rocks are synthetic but give you the sense you’re near some kind of relaxing stream…somewhere more calming than you might be. They look almost beyond realistic, and at less than $20 for approximately 18 rocks, they’re worth a try. BUY

Juxtaposed religion booskshelf

Mike Simonian and Maaike Evers have designed something fairly clever. “Juxtaposed: Religion” is a bookshelf that places the seven major religious texts all on the same level – literally. The The bookshelf is designed so that each book reaches the same height. Even more interesting is that Mike’s portfolio includes helping to design the X-Box 360. Somehow, we think there are many who will find similarities in the two. $2,500 (Books included). BUY

Need to relax? Try grabbing inspiration from the Peaceful Buddha statue. Whom better to take your cues from than a man who had it all as a prince and warrior, and gave it up to find nirvana. Maybe this will inspire you to see what’s really important in life – and if you’re up for it, a little meditation. Great art for any spot. Maybe next to your stock ticker just to even it out. Possible lifelong happiness, for only $135.
