We are sharing more: food, clothing, apartments, bicycles or cars. The sharing economy has now advanced into the furniture industry, and this at precisely the right time. This is because, according to a recent study from Connox, a German online shop for living design, and the furniture supplier Lyght Living, nearly every second person surveyed would rent furniture. The situation was entirely different only recently. While hardly anyone, or 2%, had rented private furniture to date, 48 percent can now imagine doing so in future.
