Don't RENT FURNITURE! Why not let the furniture companies furnish your house for advertisement?

Home Stager with Centre Stage

Have any of you considered negotiating a deal with a locally owned furniture store to let you showcase their furniture for free?  In Springfield, the Parade of Homes has great furniture displayed in the homes that I believe is placed there for free.  There are always tags that let you know who donated the furniture.  This could only work for vacant homes since if the buyer does not like the furniture it would have to go back unused.  My husband suggested this partnership.  If I sold their furniture, they would pay me a small percentage and I get their product out there.   Some buyers purchase new furniture for every house they move in to.  Has anyone tried this?

What a great idea.  Do you think a furniture company would do this?  What if someone gets a stain on a chair?
