yes, all of our pictures are firmly secured to the office walls using two hooks per picture, so they are stable and always remain level.

Topic 3 - Artwork
a) where do you source the artwork from?
we source our office artwork from a mixture of established full-time artists and from talented emerging artists. Most artists are from London and the UK, along with some international artists.

b) what is the style of the artwork you rent?
our rental collection is contemporary and suitable for a corporate setting. Artwork is uplifting, inspiring and modern, with an occasional twist of humour.

c) do we get a say in selecting the artwork for our office?
yes, there are a number of ways to select office artwork. The options are:
i) You choose - have a browse, create your own wish-list on our website, and send us this wish-list along with some photos of your office wall spaces. We will then review, send you a tailored art rental quote and finalise details with you.

ii) We recommend - some customers prefer us to suggest artwork ideas suitable for their business type and office space. You can email us some photos and a description of your artwork needs. Or we can arrange a site visit (free in central London). We can then create a tailored light-box for you to view artwork, share with office colleagues and choose from.

iii) Let your staff vote - some customer allow their staff to have a say in choosing artwork, using our online staff voting tool (we will set up this tool for you based on a shortlist of your favourite artwork ranges, then process the scores for you and let you know the outcome).

Or sometimes our office art clients prefer a mix of the above options.

d) can we see samples of artwork in real-life first?
yes, once we have narrowed down your shortlist, we can bring samples to your office so you can view in-situ.

e) are labels or price tags stuck to the wall next to the artwork?
no, we do not put up labels or price tags next to the artwork, so your clients need never know you are renting artwork. Some customers choose to display information about the artwork being rented in their office, we can arrange this for you as required.

Topic 4 - Payment & Costs for Renting Art
a) when are rental payments made and how do we pay?
we invoice businesses quarterly in advance and ask for payment by BACS banks transfer (preferred) or via cheque. The first art rental invoice is not issued until you are happy with the artwork installed - all of our rental agreements come with a 10-day trial period (we will change the art or cancel the agreement if you are not satisfied).

b) are there any other costs?
sometimes, yes.
If your office is based outside of central London, a delivery surcharge fee will apply (this varies by location, typically £125 in Greater London (inside M25), and £145-195 for Home Counties).
You also have the option to purchase a picture hanging rail system - this costs £65 per picture installed (or we will hang the pictures for free using conventional picture hooks & pins).

c) is the rented artwork insured?
no, although usually our office clients standard business contents insurance policy will already cover the rented art. If not, then the cheapest method is for our clients to arrange a simple extension to their existing policy (we'll help by providing a certificate of value). Or we can quote to provide insurance for you, if required.

d) can I cancel the art rental contract?
yes - after the agreed minimum art rental period, we ask for 3 months written notice.
