We know the drill – move into a new house, buy furniture items, pack or sell them, and move along to another condo or country. Make life a whole lot easier during your stint in Singapore by opting for furniture rental. Rope in one of these four furniture companies to help you achieve your dream look, without a fuss.
WTP The Furniture Company
WTP The Furniture Company carries a mix of styles, from classic to contemporary – or, for something easier on the wallet, you can head to The Outlet, WTP’s budget store-within-a-store, whose offerings have been recently expanded. Choose to lease just one item or furniture for all rooms – lease periods range from 12 to 36 months, with short-term one-month rentals renewed monthly. You’ll also have access to warranty and maintenance services. If you have something specific in mind, have the team customise the colour, fabric and wood finishing of your furniture.
Tips from WTP
- “If you’re not thinking of buying a piece after leasing, take the chance to try out different and unconventional styles. If you are going to buy, get advice on how the furniture will fit in your current and future home, both from a design and size perspective.”
- “Take the measurements for the furniture you’re considering and mark those measurements off on the floor using tape. This will help you imagine the right size for a piece when choosing furniture.”
Choose from a collection of handcrafted contemporary and rustic wood furniture and accessories at Gallery 278 by Esco Leasing. The team also offers home-styling, space solutions, artwork and home decor selection to help you complete your dream home. You can even have the team spruce up your favourite sofa or table through their re-upholstery and re-finishing services – they’ll look as good as new! They also offer lease options and they can be as flexible as anything from a few days (short-term) to years (long term). You can even customise items, and while you wait, you’ll get a complimentary loan of a comparable piece. If you end up loving your rental furniture, you’ll have the option of purchasing it when the lease ends.
Tips from Gallery 278 by Esco Leasing
- “Even though you’re leasing, it doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style and comfort. Get expert advice on paint colour, furniture configuration, layout and more for the whole package.”
- “Know your leasing rights and options as different companies offer different terms and conditions in their contracts.”

A tip from Lian Huat

Rentolive Furniture carries a range of classic, modern, Victorian and vintage pieces, so you’re sure to find something that strikes your fancy. Or, you could have the team customise items to fit your style and taste. The collection includes brand new and preloved pieces, catering to a range of budgets. If you need, Rentolive can also provide you with other home essentials such as a fridge, microwave, kettle, vacuum cleaner, cutlery and bedding. While waiting for new stock, they’ll have you sorted with temporary furniture to tide you over until yours arrives. And, if you have any faulty products, you can get a one-for-one replacement. A short-term lease lasts about one month, while long-term leases are one year and beyond.
A tip from Rentolive
- “Be sure to record and report any damages upon delivery to avoid extra and unnecessary costs.”
