Picture this: say you are moving into your new apartment, but dread takes over before the excitement settles in. The process is exhausting and chances are you have got some furniture pieces you no longer require. What happens then? Do you leave it on the street? Pass it on to a friend maybe? Or spend hours trying to sell it on secondhand websites? Millennials move an average of 10 times before they settle and purchase a house. Until then, the constant struggle of picking, buying, and moving furniture never ends.

That’s where MAKAN comes in, to reinvent the furniture experience. The founders' story is the same as others around you; they moved a lot over the past years, never spent more than 2 years in the same place, and always faced the same issues with furniture.

So why rent vs. buy?

The newer generation is constantly in motion, seeking new opportunities, travel adventures, or are just advocates of new environments. UAE is known for being the ideal destination that attracts many joiners due to its tolerant population, sunny weather, and wide range of activities and opportunities. New comers are often there for an undetermined period of time which calls for undetermined living situations. Therefore, MAKAN brings a furniture rental service that adapts to those needs – an alternative to traditional furniture ownership. By renting your furniture, you can decide later if you would like to keep it, swap it, or return it. Moreover, pay monthly for the time the furniture is in use and avoid paying a fortune upfront. It’s a hassle-free, risk-free, and waste-free solution.

With over 3,000 pieces of furniture delivered to date, MAKAN is the #1 furniture rental service in the UAE.

How does it work?

  • You can simply pick the furniture of your choice on their website www.makanhome.ae, which includes sofas, beds, tables, and much more.

  • At the end of your lease, simply let them know if you would like to return the furniture, exchange it, or extend your lease. MAKAN offers a rent-to-own model allowing you to own the furniture if you love it !
