Our Story

Cohabit is a circular furniture rental startup based in Malmö, Sweden.

As former international students, we have experienced first-hand the challenges students face when it comes to furnishing their empty apartments – and yes, it’s quite stressful!

Launched in 2022, Cohabit aims to make sustainable consumption convenient, accessible, and affordable by providing pre-loved furniture for rent. Initially intended as a project for our Social Entrepreneurship, Social Innovation, and Sustainability course, we realized the potential for Cohabit, given the number of international students who move to Sweden – and experience the same problem – annually. 

Today, our services are available in Malmö and Lund, and aim to expand to other major student cities in the near future, so join the movement and choose circularity with Cohabit!
