Decorate Your Home With Stunning Works Of Art For A Fraction Of Their Selling Price

I’ve never liked houses with plain white walls that scream austerity. The mere thought of walking into a room with bare walls stretching all the way up to the ceiling and surrounding me from all corners, makes me sick to my stomach, urging into my mind the image of a sanatorium. Since I’m not a big fan of wallpaper either, as I’ve rarely seen a design that managed to please my eyes, my guilty pleasure will always remain in the form of art hanging on the walls. Whether it’s a framed photograph, charcoal sketches, engraving in ink or somptuous paintings, my opinion stands its gound – art is very much worth investing in.

The only problem – truly valuable works of art tend to be quite expensive. Moreover, while a certain painting may look amazing on a gallery wall, it may have a totally different visual effect when hung on the wall of a house with a radically different architecture. The solution for this dilemma is however quite simple –

Art Remba, sort of a Rent-The-Runway for art pieces (Rent-The-Runway has gained immense fame and popularity due to the unique service that it offers – the possibility of renting designer clothes and accessories, for a fraction of their retail price), offers you the option of discovering, renting and, in case you may desire to, purchase works of art, by a series of top artists.

The unique services offered by Art Remba include renting a stunning work of art of your choice per month for a fraction of its selling price, with the option of keeping it for an unlimited time, returning it at the end of the month, swapping it for another work of art, or simply buying it, in which case, 50% of your monthly fees will be deducted from the selling price. Moreover, the delivery and installing will be done by professionals, and each piece comes with an insurance, so that you needn’t worry about accidents and just enjoy your new piece of art.

From photographs to Pop Art collages and from sketches to abstract, expressionist or surrealist paintings, even the most pretentious art lover is bound to find a piece that he simply can’t take his eyes off. Also, given the fact that Art Remba features a myriad artists and art pieces with prices ranging from $1,500 to over $50,000, while monthly rent fees start at a mere $50, I should believe you’re already convinced that visual art is definitely something you should be investing in as soon as possible.
