How it works

1. Browse the collection

Pieces by Violet has a wonderfully diverse collection of vintage furniture and other unique items for rent. To get started, browse the collection and save your favorite pieces to a wish list, which we'll remember every time you visit.

2. Get in touch

Whether you have just started looking, or have already found all of your perfect pieces, we'd love to hear from you. If you have built a wish list, then you can easily send it to us as part of your inquiry.

3. Reserve your pieces

We will provide you with a custom quote for your selected pieces, including delivery and pickup. When you are ready to go ahead, we require a 50% deposit to reserve your pieces. The remaining 50% is due two weeks prior to the rental date.

4. We deliver to the venue

Prior to the event date, we will work closely with your venue and event planner to organize the delivery. We are happy to deliver within a 100 mile radius of San Francisco, including Napa, Sonoma, the East Bay, and the Peninsula.

5. Ready, Set, Go!

We love to see our pieces come alive and be put to good use. So on the day, kick back, and enjoy!

6. We pickup and return

When you're all finished up, we'll come and pickup the pieces. We aim to make this process hassle free, and will organize a convenient time with the venue.

Pricing Guide

As a boutique rentals company, we love to pour our hearts into only a limited number of events each week. To make this happen, we have to apply order minimums based on distance to the venue (from San Francisco).

The table below shows some example order minimums. This is just a guide - let us know the details of your event and we'll be happy to provide a custom quote!

Distance (miles) Order Minimum
up to 10 $800+
up to 20 $900+
up to 40 $1,100+
up to 60 $1,300+
up to 80 $1,500+
up to 100 $1,800+


How long is the rental period?

The standard rental period is for 24 hours. We’re happy to do multiple day or weekly rentals, please get in touch for more information. If you require a piece for less than 24 hours then that's perfectly fine too, but we will still charge for a 24 hour period.

What if I bruise or lose a piece?

No problem, it happens! But a replacement or repair cost will be charged. This includes upholstery cleaning fees if something gets spilled. We require a credit card on file to cover any lost or damaged items.

Can I pickup and return the pieces myself?

We do not allow client pickup and return of any seating, tables, bars or large decor pieces. We much prefer our delivery team to do the heavy lifting! If your order contains only textiles or small decor pieces, then pickup and return can be made by appointment from our warehouse, Monday to Friday.

Do you have a minimum order requirement?

For orders that contain seating, tables, bars or large decor pieces, we have a minimum order requirement starting at $800. See the Pricing Guide for more details. For will-call orders that contain only textiles or small decor pieces, we have a minimum order requirement of $300.

I can't find something that I really must have. Can you find it for me?

Please get in touch, as we love a good treasure hunt! If you cannot find something in our collection, then we can try to source it for you. Also, we are constantly adding to the collection, so we might already be working on what you are looking for!

I just can’t decide what to rent!
Can you help?

Definitely! Making your event perfect is equally as important to us as it is to you! Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, and we can help you choose the right pieces for your event. We will happily give advice, and we do not charge a consultation fee.
