Services like Conjure rent furniture for your home office, learning pod, or short-term rental for periods as brief as three months.


Short-term furniture rental services aren’t new to NYC, but there’s more interest in the Covid era because they’re a fast and eco-friendly way to furnish your temporary home office, learning pod, new apartment, or short-term rental.

Why rent furniture instead of buy? You can get stylish, functional pieces that fit your space without a commitment. It's also a more eco-friendly route than buying inexpensive pieces that can end up in a landfill or collect dust when things go back to normal, whenever that may be. Pricing depends on the pieces you choose and the length of your lease, typically three to 12 months, but it can be more affordable than paying full price for quality furniture. If you decide you want to keep the furniture, many of these services allow you to buy the pieces at the end of the rental period and apply your rental payments towards the price. 

Conjure, a furniture rental service that officially launched with a new name and $9 million in seed funding this month, says it has experienced an increased demand since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Monthly signups for their service have quadrupled since March.

Many short-term furniture rental services not only deliver your furniture but will also assemble it (if necessary) and place it where you want. Some provide design services if you need help picking out what works best for your space and apartment staging services. Keep in mind that some of these companies require a subscription or membership.

So, if you need to furnish your temporary home office, learning pod, or fill up your new apartment, here are five of the most popular furniture rental services available in New York City.
