As a Seattleite, I’ve found to be consistently short on extra money, time, and the even more elusive: storage space. Local company Decorent comes to our rescue this holiday with tree decorations that are delivered to your door and curated to look as good as a store display! After the holidays are over, Decorent will pick up your decorations from your door, no storage necessary. Not to mention you basically get an amazing looking tree without being stuck with the same decorations every year.
Sofia and Stan, the founders of the company, broke down the whole hassle-free process for us.
Tell us about Decorent and how it came to be?
Three years ago we celebrated our first Christmas together in our new home. Once the holidays were over, we were left with a cramped garage and expensive decor that we felt obligated to reuse for the upcoming years. We both joked 'Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have just rented this, and next year created a new design?' After a bit of research, we found that this service does not exist, so we decided to solve our own problem and created Decorent! There were a lot of bumps in the road, and it took us a few years, but we are beyond excited to debut this holiday season. Currently we only deliver in the greater Seattle Area, but we hope to expand to other states in the coming years."
What is the process like when it comes to renting decorations?
We've made renting as fun and easy as possible. The process starts from the comfort of your home, just visit our website at www.decorent.com and pick from a selection of high-quality decor, or rent a professionally designed set. During checkout you'll be prompted to select a delivery period, at that time your package will arrive directly to your doorstep, ready for immediate use. After the holidays are over, just pack everything up and we'll send someone to retrieve your package on your desired pick-up date. No need to worry about storing decor year-long, and next Christmas choose a new look for your tree!
Who comes up with the template designs to choose from?
We do! All our designs were created in-house by our co-founder Sofia. A few of the looks were inspired by her mother, who is a designer and avid Christmas decorator. Over the years we've perfected each theme and next year we plan to launch even more unique designs, so if there's something you want to see let us know!
Do you have an ideal customer?
Our services are beneficial to a number of people! From businesses that would like to enhance their customers' in-store experience, to homeowners and renters that are tired of the same decor year after year, or have limited storage space. We even appeal to environmentally conscious individuals, as our company helps reduce world waste and promotes a sharing economy.
What's the price range?
Our professionally designed tree sets start at $34.99 and include lights, ornaments, accents, and ribbons or fillers. But ultimately the price depends on the height of your tree. We also offer a wide selection of high-quality decor ranging from 25 cents per item to $3. Our mouth-blown polish ornaments start at $3.99 for a pack of 8 (50 cents per piece) and are a beautiful addition to any tree.
