While at NeoCon East in Philadelphia, PA, we met with a number of designers and manufacturers that cater to the commercial industry, but AFR Furniture Rental offered something a bit different to the crowd.

 

We spoke briefly with Frank Connolly, a representative from the Secaucus, New Jersey-based furniture rental company, AFR Furniture Rental. Frank told us about AFR’s role in furnishing a variety of spaces, including commercial, residential, trade shows, and even special events ever since the company started back in 1975.

From their expansive warehouse in Secaucus and a number of other locations, AFR distributes furniture up and down the east coast. Frank explained, “We have a total of 21 locations throughout the US. We’re considered a small business, but we’re in a number of major cities.”

 

What types of furniture do they rent out? According to Frank, they offer something for everyone.

 

Residential

You’d be surprised at home many people are looking for temporary furniture for their homes. In fact, many homeowners choose to furnish their home with rentals from AFR Furniture Rental when staging their home to sell. “We have all types of residential furniture which is often used in staging for home sales” Frank told us.

Commercial

In addition to their plentiful residential options, AFR also stocks commercial furniture such as desks and chairs. When businesses such as small businesses and hospitals choose to furnish their areas with rentals, it’s often considered a “swing space,” according to Frank.
