Parapluie is an art advisory service specializing in the sourcing of art for a range of both domestic and corporate interiors and exteriors. We source artwork that ranges from £500 - £5m +.

Working with Interior Designers, Architects, businesses, and individuals, we oversee the entire process of sourcing artwork for interior and exterior spaces, from negotiations with artists and galleries, through to transport, delivery, and installation. We can also offer a bespoke commissioning service, brokering introductions to different artists, and offering clients the opportunity to appoint one to produce new artwork. Our team ensures the process is smooth and enjoyable by overseeing the entire project management process including legal and contractual arrangements. 

We can step in at the earliest stages of architectural and interior design to implement build and conservation features that can accommodate the future installation of art. We advise clients on issues such as technical installation, environmental conditions, and long-term care and maintenance, all of which need to be considered when planning for and selecting works of art that are suitable for different spaces. We can also offer a handling and re-hang service, overseeing the exchange of artworks, or the removal, transportation, and re-installation of artwork into new interior settings and advise on art storage during renovation periods. We believe our relationship doesn’t start and end with the purchase or commission of artwork and embrace the opportunity to offer a long-term service of care and attention to our clients and collaborators. 

International Art can be sourced for a wide range of residential and commercial settings both here in the UK and abroad, from private homes to corporate headquarters, public buildings, and even outdoor spaces.

We believe our specialist service and access to Art offers Interior Designers and Architects collaborating with us, a competitive advantage with new and existing clients and offers the opportunity to create distinctive and impressive interiors.
