Block Party

Home decorating presents a dilemma: You can either blow the whole budget on a postage stamp-size piece of original art or start a whole gallery of preframed posters from a giant furniture chain.

Oddly enough, there’s not much in between.

Until now. Art Blocks have arrived at Absolute Abstract, and the high-quality reprints put pieces by iconic artists of the last half of the 20th century within your reach. Famous works by the likes of Andy Warhol, Joseph Holston, Terry Rose, and Robert Indiana are shrunk to a small scale and set in wood molding that matches the prints’ colors — hues such as cherry, tweed (sagey green), and Cairo (a deep mahogany).

Boxy in shape, they stand up on their own, so multiples can be easily stacked (as they are on the recycled road sign end tables in the studio) or simply hung on the wall.

You know. Right where that gorgeous thing from Ikea is.

Available at Absolute Abstract, 141 South 13th Street (215-733-0190 or absoluteabstractart.com).
