According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a whopping 98 million tonnes of furniture ends up in landfills each year. Abacus intends to help curb this number and counter consumption culture by creating quality pieces within a subscription model. By renting the pieces, you can test them out in your home before committing long term, and you are able to return and reinvent your space by swapping out components and pieces, meaning you can grow out of items without the guilt of getting rid of them.
Not only does the changeability of components and pieces allow you to keep up with the changing trends by adding or subtracting to your subscription, you can move freely and adapt your furniture to an entirely new space without the typically associated waste. We believe small, meaningful changes like these can challenge the big issues surrounding waste, sustainability, and our environmental footprint.
