[On Approval] is a new way to live with original art in your home or office.
Rent and rotate artworks all through a seamless subscription service.
Embrace experience over ownership.
Clients are invited to join the [On Approval] community at one of our three subscription levels (one-month, half-year, or full-year periods).
Upon joining, clients are given exclusive access to [OA]’s inventory of available artworks, which can then be selected, delivered, and installed by our team of professional art handlers.
Depending on the subscription level, clients are welcome to rotate, return, or keep artworks even longer, as well as purchase what you’ve grown to love.
All our subscription levels include a remote consultation with an [On Approval] curator, delivery, installation, pick up, and insurance.
The main distinction between our three levels is the length of time artworks remain in your home. We recommend selecting the level that best suits your current needs while understanding you may amend your subscription level at the end of each month.
Yes, but credits do not roll over.
If you have a half-year subscription and you don’t buy the artwork installed during this period, that subscription fee doesn’t roll over as credit.
Outside of our set subscription periods, any extra rotation will incur a $1,000 fee per artwork.
Our full-year subscribers are allowed one complimentary rotation halfway through their subscription.
Things happen—if you need to end your subscription early and are paying monthly we charge you for the next two months, or if paying quarterly, for the next quarter. These fees cover deinstallation, transport, and re-stocking.
No, but if you are using our month-long subscription to try out an artwork before you buy it, you are able to purchase it at any time during the month-long period.
Likewise, if you realize it’s not the artwork for you, as long as you’ve paid for the full month, we will try to schedule pickup or rotation as soon as possible.
Yes, at the same property and multiple properties, and both at home or at the office.
If you love an artwork and don’t want to live without it, we subtract what you’ve paid already in subscription fees for that artwork from the original retail price.
We also offer interest-free financing of 2 to 6 months upon request.
If you’re a half-year or full-year subscriber, we can help facilitate this for you for additional fees. Please get in touch.
Our professional and insured art handlers will show up to your home or office on the agreed date and time, and quickly install your artworks.
This will involve making either minimal small screw or nail holes in your wall, which can be easily fixed at a later date.
All packing materials will be taken away by our art handlers.
We are currently servicing the Bay Area and Los Angeles, but we will make exceptions for enterprise clients.
If you are located in another area, please reach out. We’d love to hear from you.
Yes, as long as changes are confirmed 48 hours before your set delivery.
We can typically deliver artworks in 4 to 8 business days once the artworks are confirmed. We always do our best to honor your preferred delivery date, which you can request during the checkout process.
[OA] can absolutely provide a Certificate of Insurance if your building requires one. After you’ve placed your subscription, simply send us a template or sample and we’ll fill it out accordingly.
Dimensions of all of our artworks can be found in the caption information of each piece. While our installation teams are skilled at maneuvering large artworks through tight spaces, we encourage you to measure your home for all artworks in your order. It’s also a good idea to measure the entryway to the home itself. If we arrive with an artwork that cannot fit into your home or doesn’t work in your space, there will be a restocking fee of $250 per piece.
No, [OA] will not remove any artworks that are not part of our service. If an artwork needs to be moved for your [On Approval] artwork to be installed, we will deinstall it, wrap it in plastic sheeting for you, and place it in another location in your home.
Part of our full-year services includes helping clients manage their collections. As a full-year subscriber, a climate controlled storage account would be set up for you, and we could remove and transport any artworks you wanted to store.
Our policy is no, unless it’s directly needed to create wall space.
We will not paint a wall for you, but we will touch up holes made by deinstallation of artworks with wall spackle.
Our art handlers show up, wrap the artwork leaving your home, and minimally patch your walls with white spackle. If you provide touch up paint, they will also touch up your wall.
You can extend your subscription but we limit each artwork to a half-year subscription period only.
If you have fallen in love with an artwork, you can and should buy it. We subtract what you’ve paid already on that piece’s subscription and offer financing upon request.
When your subscription is coming to an end, [OA] will reach out to you 7-10 business days in advance to schedule a rotation or pick up.
If you’re planning on being out of town for an extended period of time within a week of the end of your subscription, you will need to inform us in writing in advance.
If we don’t hear from you, and the artworks are not picked up, we will renew your current subscription.
Most artworks are available for immediate purchase (like in an art gallery)—just inquire over email, DM, or in person at our showroom. Financing can also be applied to immediate purchases.
We offer interest-free financing of 2 to 6 months upon request.
After a deposit of 20% of the total cost, the balance is split up into even monthly payments.
[On Approval] provides our subscription services at scale as well as custom curatorial and art engagement services to inspire your company culture and reinforce its values throughout your workspace and beyond.

Our lead enterprise program designer is Drew Bennett who founded and ran the global FaceBook art program for 7 years.

We count some of the most established along with up and coming art galleries and private art dealers in our exclusive network.
[On Approval] also works directly with a curated pool of artists.
We do not accept artist submissions.
Artists get paid a % of all subscription fees and sales, directly from us or through their galleries.
We are building a sustainable circular economy for artists and their support networks.
We will eventually introduce a “blue chip” level for artworks valued over $60,000—as well as a young local artist level for artworks valued around $5,000 and below.
All [OA] pricing listed does not include tax. Sales tax is added to all artwork prices, delivery/installation fees, subscription fees, and early cancellation fees.
Your credit or debit card will be charged for the first month when your subscription is confirmed. Your subscription starts on the day of delivery and you’ll be charged monthly moving forward. For example, if you placed your order on the 1st, and we delivered on the 5th, the “Month 1” charge will go through on the 1st (upon placing your order), and “Month 2” will be charged on the 5th of the next month (and each 5th day of the month thereafter). This ensures that you are not paying for artworks until you actually have them in your home or office.
Prior to delivery and installation, you’ll receive a rental agreement detailing your subscription with [OA]. Please review and sign this document at your earliest convenience; we cannot complete a delivery unless the rental agreement has been signed.
You’ll also be asked to verify the condition of your items upon delivery with a signature.
To provide the best experience to our customers, we may run a soft credit check that does not affect your credit score. Soft inquiries (also known as “soft pulls”) typically occur when a person or company checks your credit as part of a verification process. This may occur, for example, when a credit card issuer checks your credit to see if you qualify for certain credit card offers.
Our insurance policy which we extend for every artwork subscription & service for individuals and our enterprise services is detailed in our user contract you will receive and need to sign before the artworks are installed.
