Abacus provides Vancouver with a circular economy alternative to home furnishings with its furniture subscription service

Vancouver, B.C, December 11, 2020 – Since launching in the summer, Abacus has provided a growing number of customers the ability to update their living spaces in a way that suits their style, needs, and budget.

As more people shift towards nomadic lifestyles by working, studying, and living around the globe, owning furniture has become more complex and inconvenient. There is a growing preference for furniture rental as a no strings attached alternative to ownership. While some furniture companies provide cheaply made “fast furniture” that can be disposed at every move, these pieces lack in quality and character. Even worse is the environmental impact of all the furniture going to landfill before the end of its useful life. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 9.8 million tonnes of furniture is disposed of by U.S. households each year.

As an alternative, Abacus provides beautiful, functional furniture that suits your short or long-term rental needs. Once you choose your furniture and curate what your living space will look like, Abacus assembles the order and delivers the items right to your door. You can then swap or return the furniture at any time and if there is a piece that you love and want to keep you can buy it out.

“Furniture shopping can be stressful, complicated, and expensive. We want to change that in a way that better suits peoples’ lifestyles. ”

– Jian Cheng, Co-Founder

Launching a furniture subscription service during a pandemic has been a challenge but Abacus has put in modified in-home delivery guidelines and added contactless delivery to help protect employees, delivery assistants, clients, and community against COVID-19. In addition, Abacus has enhanced its refurbishment and sanitation procedures to ensure that all surfaces are meticulously disinfected and steam cleaned once they are returned.

Since its launch, the response to Abacus has been overwhelmingly positive. Customers are really enjoying the hassle-free service delivered through its website, flexible terms, and home delivery. Customers can shop online without the risk of being tied to the cost of buying quality furnishings without trying the piece in their homes. Customers have also enjoyed the ability to swap items as their tastes and needs change.

“Awesome service and a great way to get the furniture you want that you can afford right away, plus it gives you the flexibility to change and keep your home with the latest designs. I got a coffee table and leather chair. Their website is easy to use and the customer service is great. I fully recommend this alternative to update your home. ”

– Thomas, Abacus Customer

It looks like 2021 will be an exciting year for Abacus, as with the global rollout of COVID-19 immunization programs, people will be able to return to the nomadic lifestyles that we love and work, study, and live overseas.
