Why Rent

Whether you refer to it as art hire, art rental or art leasing; it means flexibility. Buying original art is exciting and we love to match people with their perfect artwork, but often art rental is the smart choice.

The wonderful flexibility of renting art means your artwork can change with you and your changing situation - whether you have a new office layout or simply changing tastes. Renting art takes away the risk. Rent ongoing as a business model that makes financial and design sense, or experience art before a purchase. Art rental is the smart way to modernise and step change the presentation of your work space or home.

Enjoy the flexibility of art rental. It is all part of our service. 


What's the cost?

Original fine art is available to rent from just $12 per week ex GST.

Some variability will exist depending on a particular artwork or artist, however the majority of art is priced for lease simply by size. After a one-off installation charge of $95, there are no further installation charges for ongoing customers.

We are happy to work to your budget and select the best art to make your project a success. Find out more about our business service, our residential service or our home staging solutions.


What's involved?

Whether it is a single piece of art you're seeking or you have a significant space and areas that need multiple selections our art consultants are here to help.

A free, no-obligation proposal is part of our service. This includes a digital preview of how selected art will look in-situ on your walls.

We can come and see you in person, confirm the best solution and will professionally hang all artwork. We service the greater Auckland and Christchurch areas. Call us today to discuss what’s right for you.

I would like to thank you for working for us again to achieve the look and feel we wanted to create for our office space.  The artwork looks fantastic and brings each of the key areas in our office to life.  We really do appreciate your flexibility in providing us with options that fit our brief, and working within our time schedules.  The staff and other visitors have been highly complimentary of the art, and of course this reflects positively on Barfoot & Thompson's image in the community.
