Artwork Leasing Program

Artwork Leasing

Artwork leasing is can be a great alternative to purchasing artwork outright. The Design Ideation leasing program is a convenient, flexible and economical way for clients to enjoy fine artwork in their homes and offices. Leasing is also available for special events and for home staging. The leasing agreement is made directly between you (the client) and Design Ideation. No outside leasing company is involved.

Leasing artwork can be the perfect solution to the décor decisions you have to make in your office or home space.

We offer an arrangement whereby art is leased in cycles, thus allowing you to ensure that your space is continually refreshed and revitalized. Frequent visitors will feel the added dynamism this adds to the atmosphere, and you will give the impression of being always up-to-date as older works are replaced by contemporary ones. You can also change the artwork around as you alter the other furnishings of the room, meaning you will always have the art that is right for the appearance of the room.

You may be unsure about what kind of artwork you are looking for, and what sort of effect you want to produce. By leasing art, you can try out different styles for finite periods of time, enabling you to see just what kind of effect each one has on the room.

Leasing is an excellent option for companies or families who love good artwork and variety, but have a budget to consider. The costs can be factored in as a regular monthly fee, representing far less outlay than would be the case with buying works outright.

If it happens that when you have seen a certain piece in your space, you fall in love with it and do not want to return it at the end of the leasing period, you can extend the lease. Alternatively, purchase is an option, with some of the leasing costs deducted from the price of the work.

Leasing is a solution that has been embraced by many well-known companies and individuals, and we encourage you to consider it as a possibility for yourself and your home or office space.
