How renting furniture helps the circular economy

Fernish is a U.S.-based company that is giving furniture a second chance in multiple ways. Customers can rent various furnishings for a period, where they can choose to purchase the items outright or return them to be refurbished, donated, or re-rented. The company sanitizes the items between uses and even replaces the fabrics and refurbishes them using sustainably-sourced materials, when necessary, to keep them durable over time. By offering furniture rentals, the company says goodbye to “fast furniture” – cheaply-made furniture that is thrown away after a single use. Learn more.
