L'eie - rent to own art
With L'eie you can rent an artwork by paying 10% of it's value, until you eventually own the piece.
For many art lovers, price and uncertainty make buying art a challenge. If you're interested in art from professional artists, the cost can often exceed your budget. Plus, it's not always easy to know if a piece will fit your home.
L'eie solves these issues by allowing you to lease art at a low monthly cost. As you make payments, you'll gredually become the owner. No interest is added, and if the piece doesn't suit your taste, you can return it during the lease period. Selected artworks are available for L'eie at atelie.art/editions.
