Eventually, we will return to our offices. Until then, don’t think you have to break the bank to set yourself up for success at home.
Working from home is the new normal and you may be discovering that your set up isn’t ideal on a daily basis. Yet, you might not be ready to invest in purchasing furniture for this new arrangement. Enter a few direct-to-consumer furniture rental services that have been working to reinvent the way people furnish their homes. Originally designed to service Millennials on the move—a generation that has been moving more often and renting more homes than any prior generation—these businesses now also have the ability to reinvent themselves to temporarily help service a nation full of home offices.
Fernish, a “Rent the Runway-esque service for furniture” allows you to choose and rent single and full-room furnishings from furniture brands that range from their own private label to Crate & Barrel—and keep them for however long you want. Founded by Michael Barlow and Lucas Dickey in 2017, after both of them had experienced multiple moves—five times in seven years for Barlow and 10 times in 12 years for Dickey—Fernish was created to eliminate the stress, time, and money it takes to move and furnish a home. Currently, Fernish is available in Los Angeles and Seattle with plans to enter additional markets later this year. “Fernish is laser-focused on our customers and providing an optimal customer experience. Our team has strong Amazon DNA and that’s the lens through which we view things,” shares Barlow. Pricing varies based on the piece and how many months you’re renting for, but there is a $99 minimum monthly. Barlow also recently published the way Fernish is handling the current pandemic on Medium.
