About

UPDATE: We're into the final days of our campaign and we've had lots of positive feedback on our customization system - but some people seem reluctant to make a commitment and back the project. We understand - it's a pretty big purchase, and it's difficult to know how much to pledge for furniture you haven't designed yet. So here's the thing:

We will be moving forward with the project, whether we meet our Kickstarter goal or not. We're convinced that people want easy custom furniture, and we're determined to give it to them! Whatever the outcome of the campaign, Kickstarter supporters will be registered in our system and will get special treatment - the first opportunity to place an order, a discount that will never be offered again AND an opportunity to help shape the features of the system through our Beta test period. So please don't hesitate to make a pledge of any amount and/or sign up for future updates on our website. Thanks!!

HOW IT WORKS

There are lots of cool designs on Kickstarter, but Massuni lets YOU be the designer. Here's how it's going to work, once we're fully operational:

Step 1 - Browse the catalogue at massuni.com to find an item that's close to what you want. We're starting with about a hundred different designs, but our goal is to eventualy have every piece of furniture in the known universe. No - really!

Step 2 - Once you've found a piece you like, go to the Configurator and change it up. Tweak the dimensions, play with the style, try on a different finish or turn it into something entirely different. See prices and renderings along the way.

Step 3 - Order it, and we'll build it. It's that simple!

Want to know more? Watch these little demo videos:

                                        Click here to view Massuni's full catalogue.

 Massuni's furniture is made in our own factory, using proprietary systems. All items are fully assembled for quality and durability. We use a combination of solid hardwoods and veneers to optimize resource consumption. Drawers are made with Baltic Plywood and European ball bearing full extension slides. Finishes are high quality catalyzed lacquers.

Why support us on Kickstarter?

Because Kickstarter backers will get access to the system before anyone else! The earlier you back the project, the earlier you will get access - and your furniture. We will not fill orders from other customers until all backers have their furniture.

Also, the prices on all items in the initial catalog will be guaranteed for Kickstarter backers. Our pricing algorithm constantly adjusts for changes in material and labor costs, so after the initial launch, prices will fluctuate.

And because we would really appreciate your support and encouragement! This project has been an enormous undertaking and we'll take all the encouragement - and cash - we can get, to finish development and get into production.

Choosing Rewards

Supporters can get individually customized furniture, so it's a little more complicated than usual to figure out what reward level to choose. Here are some suggestions:

Option A - Browse through the Rewards described below. IF you like any of the items shown for a Reward Tier, simply pledge that amount. (And add shipping fees if necessary.)

Option B - If you don't see any Rewards you like, go to massuni.com and view our entire introductory catalogue. Look through the catalogue, and if you see something you like, come back to Kickstarter and pledge that amount.

Option C - If you REALLY don't know what you want, or are uncomfortable estimating, there are two easy choices: Go for the Design Consultation Reward Tier of $25, and we'll help you figure it out after the campaign. Or, select the $180 Reward Tier, which is pretty much the lowest price of any furniture we make, then pay the balance once you've created your custom furniture.

IMPORTANT: After the Kickstarter campaign has ended and we've finished our development, Backers will be given first access to the website. You can then go and design your exact item, and confirm your order. If the final charge is higher than you pledged, we will bill you for the difference. If the final charge is less than you pledged, you will retain a credit that you can use in the future, or transfer to a friend.

Risks and challenges

Massuni is a project by Verso Furniture Inc., a furniture company in operation since 2000. We've made lots of cabinets, and know how to make them well. We're making the product entirely ourselves, in our own facility, so we have total control and our only objective is to satisfy our own backers and customers.
That said, Massuni is doing things that no one has ever done before, so there are lots of challenges. The risk that translates into, is timing. While we are very confident we will be able to make your custom furniture, it's less certain that we will be able to do it to the exact schedule described above. We will do everything we can to meet our obligations, but if you really need your custom furniture by a specific date, best not to choose one of the furniture perks.
