NEW YORK, October 6, 2021 – WeWork, one of the leading global flexible space providers, and Feather, the next-gen furniture rental company, announced today a new national partnership bringing Feather’s collection of high-quality, stylish workplace furniture to WeWork members in more than 35 major markets across the United States.
Following a successful pilot program in New York City, WeWork and Feather created a custom Office Builder tool for WeWork members to design their office spaces with furniture rented directly from Feather. Members select their city, building, office layout and number of employees (20 or less) and the tool will recommend a new layout and Feather furniture to fit their space and workplace preferences. Members can choose from a collection of expertly curated office bundles, as well as a la carte furniture including desks, chairs, whiteboards, sofas, cabinets, coffee tables, and bookcases. Once a member selects their bundle, Feather provides seamless delivery and installation.
“Our partnership with Feather introduces an entirely new level of design flexibility to our spaces,” said Ebbie Wisecarver, Global Head of Design at WeWork. “Together with Feather, we are delivering a more tailored experience for our members while providing businesses with the tools and flexibility to create a space that best meets their workplace needs.”
“The convenience, freedom, and flexibility that Feather is known for make our service a natural complement to the needs of the WeWork community,” said Ilyse Kaplan, President and COO at Feather. “The way people want to work has changed— team members want collaboration spaces where they can brainstorm or lounge areas where they can connect more informally. And when they’re working solo, they want ergonomic setups with sit-stand desks and top-of-the-line chairs. As the working world continues to innovate and adapt to the new normal, WeWork and Feather will now be able to offer customized layouts that meet each member’s individual needs.”
WeWork members with larger offices (20+ person capacity) can directly shop Feather’s catalog to customize their workspace. For more information on WeWork’s partnership with Feather, visit wework.livefeather.com.

Feather is passionate about keeping furniture in homes and offices and out of landfills, and is proud to continually offset the carbon emissions of its domestic operations.
