Based out of Bangalore, Furlenco was established in the year 2012, followed by its Mumbai launch in October 2015 with the purpose of elevating the living standards of urban aspirers who often end up compromising on their need for a good-looking home due to lack of desirable and convenient solutions. Furlenco gives them access to premium and aspirational products which can be used for as long as it is required, without investing heavily in buying it. After beautifying 5000+ homes in Bangalore and Mumbai in the past one year, Furlenco made its grand entry into the Pune market riding on a campaign with Uber on 1st April. The Pune operations will coincide with launch of three new offerings including a Chill Zone, Bachelor’s Pad and Sleepover. Customers can place their orders online at Furlenco and get free doorstep delivery and installations within a week. They can also swap furniture annually based on their needs.
Commenting on the launch, Ajith Mohan Karimpana, Founder and CEO of Furlenco said, “TVF is an immensely popular youth-centric digital content platform in our country, which boasts of more than 15,00,000 viewers. The idea of launching an infomercial with TVF came from a simple thought of introducing Furlenco to the youth of this city as well as all the other metropolitan cities, who are also our target group. We aim to make aspirations of Pune’s aspirers more accessible by providing premium designer furniture on rent. They can now Have Everything and Buy Nothing.”
Having pioneered the web series genre in India and created two very successful web series Permanent Roommates and Pitchers, Arunabh Kumar, Founder & Creative Experiment Officer, The Viral Fever (TVF) says, “Furlenco has made lives of young working professionals simpler without burning a hole in their pockets. As the fan base of TVF is primarily the youth – this collaboration was really exciting for us.”
Added TVF’s Jitendra Kumar who stars in the infomercial and who was present at the teaser launch, “It’s a great concept and I must thank Furlenco for giving an opportunity to anyone and everyone to rent beautiful and aspirational pieces of furniture nicely put in as an experience. Now I do not get a cold feet, thinking of purchasing furniture as disposing them used to be a bigger challenge. With Furlenco I do not have to get tied down to my furniture and with the free swap facility I can get a beautiful looking home every year.”
The teaser launch event was followed by cocktails and dinner.
