WHAT IS DISTRICTT?
WHAT IS DISTRICTT?
Districtt is a new furniture subscription startup service that can make any space feel like home but can be switched up or taken out when it’s time to relocate. Their concept is a fully functional furniture company that combines furniture shopping and a moving service into one! The entire process is broken down into 4 simple steps and your furniture can be switched up, removed, added to, or bought whenever you feel like it! This furniture on demand idea takes the hassle out of typical furniture shopping, removes the stress from the commitment of a furniture purchase and is a lot more fun with the professionals handling the rest!
The average person moves 12x before commiting to a home, the average cost of a 1 bedroom long distance move is $3,190 and 19.6 billion lbs of furniture wind up in landfills every year. These stats led to Trey and Cameron starting their business venture together in college after realizing that furniture is one of life’s biggest hassles. Moving is already an immensely difficult process when it comes to finding reputable movers that you feel confident in and it’s also way more expensive than its worth in most cases. And since no one knows the struggle of moving like college students, they formed an idea that would be an innovative furniture option for the new age while also saving time and money.
4 STEP PROCESS
4 STEP PROCESS
Step 1 is shopping the online selection of quality furniture that was selected by qualified interior designers. It’s super convenient because you can shop by room or by item! Once you’ve picked out your new furniture, their white glove delivery takes care of step 2 which is bringing the pieces to you on your schedule, assembly and arrangement included. Step 3 is the 3-day time period after delivery where you can return or swap any items for free. You get 1 free swap and each addition is just $98! The final step is the rest of your furniture journey. Extend your subscription if you’re staying put, add or swap pieces whenever, buyout your furniture if desired or Districtt will move your furniture for you when its time to uproot because hey, moving happens!
Have you ever unboxed new furniture and realized the amount of disposable, unusable waste that is used to package it? Districtt’s furniture subscription is a more environmentally responsible option compared to traditional furniture shopping with their concept of a “circular furniture economy”. This approach is incredibly climate friendly and keeps all that extra trash out of the landfills. To clarify, the circular furniture method doesn’t mean that the furniture is used when you order it. When items are returned, they undergo an 11 step refurbishment process that will make them brand new for the next home they end up in and keeps it out of a landfill.
Nothing is more disappointing than getting excited about a new piece of furniture just for it to feel worn down and used up within the first few months. With corporate furniture companies, customers will commonly fall into the fast furniture scheme of furniture that’s easy to make but not the quality we want in our homes that will last. The pieces hand selected by Districtt’s team of interior designers are quality through and through while also being trendy and up to date, never boring or falling flat!
