Furnishare Lets People Rent Out Their Unused Furniture

The sharing economy continues to rise with the introduction of Furnishare. This startup seems to complement Airbnb in a way. It allows people to rent out the furniture they aren't currently using, but don't want to give up permanently. As for the upside on the other side of the Furnishare transaction? Those you rent it out get to furnish their new place on a dime.

Currently only servicing New York City, Furnishare acknowledges the need for denser communities and small transportation costs for its current model to make any money. With a wide collection that features pieces from CB2, West Elm, Ethan Allen, Pottery Barn and, of course, Ikea as well as vintage pieces, Furnishare is a promising business.
