Why did you start Parlor?

Collecting art is something that feels out of reach for many people. Our goal is to make it easier for people to live with art, thereby getting more artworks out in the world where they can be enjoyed –– all while supporting galleries and artists.

Parlor offers access to artworks from galleries for an affordable monthly price with the option to purchase or rotate depending on your needs and interests. Parlor takes care of the delivery, installation, and insurance of all artworks. We currently serve New York.

Use Parlor if you are interested in hanging art on your walls but are not quite ready for the commitment of buying a piece, or if you’d like to try a piece at home before you buy it.

All Parlor artworks are fully insured in your home. Our team will check the artwork’s condition before installing it on your wall, and again if the piece is being returned. We expect that you care for your artwork as if it were your own. Particular artworks may have specific care considerations that our team will prepare you for.

Yes, all artworks on Parlor are for sale. You can buy a Parlor artwork at any point during your loan period, and 100% of your monthly loan fees will be deducted from the purchase price. We can also get you set up with a payment plan so that you can continue paying off your artwork on a monthly basis.

Because all of our artworks are owned by artists and galleries, artworks are still available for sale even if they are currently being loaned through Parlor. Should there be a purchase inquiry, you will be the first person to receive an offer to buy the piece. If you prefer not to buy the work, Parlor will pick it up free of charge and deliver a new artwork of your choosing to your home. Any monthly fees you’ve already paid will be automatically applied to your next piece.

Absolutely. You are welcome to choose as many pieces as you would like for your space.
