A piece of art can be a window into someone's deepest thoughts, fears, hopes or dreams, or at the very least, brighten up a cell-like living space. So, bring a little bit of arty flair fromĀ Good Shape Design; whether you're giving a loved one the decorating 411 or making your own eco-statement, you'll never come across as too preachy passing along something this cool. Designer Wayne Pate's silk screens literally frame issues like Reforestation Now (pictured above) in a savvy, but high-concept print (which is also, btw, made from recycled paper). And with a portion of the proceeds going to Trees for the Future Foundation, you can be sure you're putting your money where your, er, eyes are.
