    So you've moved into your new apartment, found the perfect dinnerware set, and all you have left to fill are those big blank walls staring menacingly back on you. We get it. It can be intimidating trying to decide how to cover those perfectly crisp, untouched spaces. You don't want to invest in something before you've seen it in the room. But it's hard to find artwork that's beautiful, high quality, and affordable, too.

    Oh wait, no it's not! Not with Art Remba, anyway. The new online destination allows its users to discover, borrow, and purchase works of art from top galleries and artists. Collectors and art enthusiasts can test-drive pieces for as low as $50 a month. You could rent a $10,000 artwork for $150 a month. Not a big fan of your selection after all? Not a problem. You can return or switch it out at the end of the month with no huge loss. Absolutely in love with your piece and want to purchase it? Half of your rental monthly dues will be put toward the purchase price.

    Artwork from China, India, Latin America, and more comes hand delivered to your doorstep and is professionally installed where you'd like it. One glance at the accompanying artist dossier and conversation starters — a sheet filled with fun facts about the artist and the artwork — and you're an instant art connoisseur. Or you'll sound like one, at least.
