Kolla was founded in 2018 on the belief that buying art should be one of life’s pleasures. Until a decade or so ago, buying art was reserved for the uber rich. Nowadays, with the help of brands like Kolla, everybody can fill their walls up with affordable original artwork. Kolla works out of Stockholm, curating beautiful photography and creating high-quality prints for modern interiors. Whether you’re looking to brighten up your home or a business, Kolla’s wall art is sure to add a refined, creative touch.
As there’s such a range of styles available from the collection, it gets difficult to choose which is perfect for you. In the hopes of streamlining your journey to a home full of beautiful artwork, we’ve picked out some of our favourite shots on offer.
Taken by Magdalena Glowacka, this stunning shot depicts the rolling countryside of Tuscany. The muted colour palette imbues the work with a mysterious edge that attracts attention in any room. As an exclusive run of 50 prints, each piece comes numbered with a certificate of authenticity. We love the colour scheme of this photograph because it provides a chance to create a dramatic blend or contrast with a wall in your home.
Ian Weldon is a photographer from the North of England who’s a self-dubbed “wedding photographer for people who don’t want wedding photography.” Ian proves his multi-faceted talents with Camero, a glowing shot of the iconic front end of a Chevrolet Camero. This legendary model will always provoke images of American road trips: long, winding roads under the beating sun.
Continuing the American theme, Wianda Bongen’s Endless City offers a sky-high view of the sky-high city. Manhattan’s countless towers, each with countless windows, act as an allegory for the millions of stories unfolding each and every day in the city that never sleeps. Bongen’s photograph captures the city on a foggy winter’s day that adds to the imposing drama of the looming towers.
Jakob Granqvist is a photographer based in Stockholm who has travelled the world and used his camera to tell his stories and the stories of those around him. Jump is an idyllic photo print for the home that’s sure to bring a sense of calm to any room. Kolla recommends pairing this photo with an abstract print to balance the artwork in a room.

Limited to 50 copies, Si Moore’s Twenty Nine Palms is a sun-washed depiction of a side of America that time forgot at some point during the ‘80s. Bold shapes appear silhouetted against the bright sunlight while a sign amusingly advertising ‘date shakes’ hangs across the centre of the scene. We particularly like that this piece is a square which offers a welcome variation to rectangular frames.
Another of Si Moore’s photographs, this time entitled Great Again, give us an insight into the American psyche. Shot on Kodak film on Rolleiflex, this picture has a satisfying grainy texture that’s rarely seen today. Moore says of this shot that you often see people treasuring objects – especially vehicles – with a sacredness that doesn’t happen in other parts of the world. With this photo comes further proof of Moore’s ability to transport a viewer across the world with one still shot.
