The motivation behind HBOUND was the creation of comfortable and productive homes at affordable prices. This is best realized by sourcing timeless, minimal art pieces to decorate your home and positively impact your well-being.
Over the past few years we experienced a lot and grew along the way. Especially reinforcing was the global pandemic because it did ONE thing:
It made us all spend more time at home and even work there. So why not spend all that time in the best possible way?
Our mission is to be a companion...a daily reminder of what matters most in life. And we believe the best way to start is with your surroundings.
That's why we lay huge focus on sourcing the most unique, minimal and motivating pieces of interior design we can find - and bring them to you for affordable prices!
Let's start this thread by diving into our bestsellers and why we think they may compliment your home and way of living as well!

Drinking several cups of tea per day has been associated with lower risks of liver disease, depression, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. Registered dietitian Amanda Sevilla states that "The oldest and longest-living populations in the world drink tea on a daily basis," Sevilla points out. "The Okinawans in Okinawa, Japan drink green tea or matcha every single day."
Personally, our go-to set is this premium tea collection by Osulloc Store.
Tea is packed with nutrients that you don't get in many other beverages, especially coffee. "Teas contain a variety of phytochemicals and phytonutrients since they are coming from different types of plants," says Sevilla.
She further says that tea is also commonly known for its anti-inflammatory properties. According to a study from the International Journal of Molecular Science, there is a hefty amount of research that can prove the positive anti-inflammatory benefits to drinking tea on a regular basis. This study in particular looks at green tea and black tea. What researchers discovered is that the properties found in green and black tea can have an enormous impact on lowering inflammation in red blood cells.
2. Michelangelo's David Head Statues and Sculptures
Give your home a powerful feel-good atmosphere with our "Golden Cut" Statue Of David - an empowering visual experience!
DAVID v GOLIATH - This phrase has taken on a life on its own ... it's arguably the most famous underdog story of all time.
It refers to the biblical contest of "David and Goliath" where a smaller, weaker opponent faces a much bigger, stronger adversary and WINS in an empowering way.
With this piece of art in your home, you will always get reminded of what you're capable of - even if it doesn't always seem so at times.
David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture, created in marble between 1501 and 1504 by the Italian artist Michelangelo.
Because of the nature of the figure it represented, the statue soon came to symbolize the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence.
Michelangelo's David is one of the world's most famous works of art and an enduring symbol of Florence.
Our David Statue "Golden Cut" certainly brings the accents of the Renaissance high-art right into your home ... and it also adds a deeper meaning! Our statues are cast from 100% high-quality resin. They are well-crafted and durable, with realistic details and a smooth surface.
Each piece is carefully inspected and carefully packaged to ensure you receive the product in perfect shape.
In case you'r einto plants and beautifying your home with greens, make sure to check out our David Head Vases as well since they add lush accents to your workspace. It's proven that your environment instantly affects your achievements and having as much daylight as possible is essential as well.
A customized and designed space improves your mood and productivity, especially through lighting. When you mix interior design with science, it’s difficult to measure the combined effects or distinguish between psychological, aesthetic and circadian effects. Research does reveal that memory and culture may affect how you perceive the reflection of light and the effects of the color produced on you.
3. Our Collection Of Unique and Minimal Wall Art
The artworks available in our shop range from minimal Moroccan style posters to Yayoi Kusama-inspired masterpieces. I cannot imagine my workspace without the various canvases and posters I've hung here throughout the years. Wall hangings can simply uplift your mood but also serve as an extra kick of motivation.
WHO IS YAYOI KUSAMA?
Yayoi Kusama (born March 22, 1929, Matsumoto, Japan) is a Japanese artist who was a self-described "obsessional artist", known for her extensive use of polka dots and for her infinity installations.
She employed painting, sculpture, performance art, and installations in a variety of styles, including Pop art and Minimalism.
She began painting as a child, at about the time she began experiencing hallucinations that often involved fields of dots.
Her early work in NYC included what she called “infinity net” paintings. Those consisted of thousands of tiny marks obsessively repeated across large canvases without regard for the edges of the canvas, as if they continued into infinity.
Her work explores the physical and psychological boundaries of painting, with the seemingly endless repetition of the marks creating an almost hypnotic sensation for both the viewer and the artist.
Mirroring the times, Kusama’s performance art explored antiwar, anti-establishment, and free-love ideas.
She is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of her time and has been highly rewarded for her works. Click here to learn more.
The things Morocco is famous for are both colorful and exotic enough to guarantee that a journey to the mystical Northern African kingdom would be a memorable one - it's the home of Aladdin after all!
Descendants of the first inhabitants of Morocco, the Berbers have a very colorful and nature-driven culture. A large chunk of them prefer to live in the harshest condition possible, like the High Atlas Mountains or the Sahara Desert. They are also incredibly witty and fun to talk to.
Some of the Berber women have heavily tattoed faces and necks. That’s an old Berber tradition, initially used for tribal identification. If you encounter one of them, don’t take a photo without asking for permission first, since a lot of them are uncomfortable around cameras.
Morocco's streets are multifaceted and definitely create a certain vibe. Many tourists come here to take professional pictures for the Instagram or website and others are simply looking for a stroll through the unique architecture on every street corner. The attention to detail in their architecture is also reflected in our artworks.
If we take a look at some different parts of the world we can't help but notice one similarity between the captials. The all love flowers apparently!
