About this project
SmartDeco is affordable, beautifully designed, professionally engineered, 100% recyclable furniture that folds together in minutes without the use of tools.
I got tired of dealing with imported, ugly, overpriced, poorly made furniture that is a pain to put together and even more of a headache to move (IKEA, Target, WalMart)...
The solution is SmartDeco and the goal is simple—save people time and money while helping the environment and the USA.
*****SHIPPING IS LIMITED TO THE USA*****
The entire SmartDeco collection is made from ultra high-grade, 100% recyclable corrugated fiberboard.
High weight-to-strength ratio, recyclability, versatility, and affordability are amongst the primary benefits of corrugated fiberboard. However, the utilization of these benefits has traditionally been limited to the packaging industry. SmartDeco breaks free from this singleminded vision and utilizes the untapped potential of corrugated fiberboard to create smart, beautiful, affordable, stable, 100% recyclable furniture.
SmartDeco is beautifully designed and ingeniously engineered. Because there was no precedent for corrugated fiberboard furniture, I started from scratch with a team of engineers and corrugated design experts. The original vision was to design a collection that pleases both the eye and the wallet, is engineered for maximum structural integrity, and provides for stress-free assembly and moving. After rigorous testing and meticulous modifying of successive prototypes, the SmartDeco collection impressively exceeds the initial expectations.
- The final design was surveyed and chosen from amongst 5 other concepts.
- Beams and folds are engineered for maximum geometric strength to create shelves and drawers with astonishing load capacity.
- Products are made from ultra high-grade Kraft board--the same board that thousand pound engine parts are shipped in.
- Patent Pending Lid SHIELDs made from 400 Micron PET effortlessly snap on the top of each product to provide added protection from liquids.
- Modular design incorporates the Lean Manufacturing model to increase quality while reducing waste, cost, and overall carbon footprint.

The past 6 months have been spent doing the dirty work. Now it's GO TIME and I need your help!
If my fundraising goal is met, the full amount will immediately be used to pay for the first production run of 1500 units... which will be happening here on the blessed soil of the United States of America. The manufacturer will be Pacific Southwest Container, located in Northern California. They are an industry leader in the manufacturing of sustainable, high quality corrugated fiberboard, and are an ISO 14001, ISO 9001, and FSC certified manufacturer. The machines that the collection will be made on are beautiful pieces of modern technology and accordingly are not cheap to operate. However, if this initial capital is raised, financial models project sustainable positive cashflow. Thank you again and please feel free to contact me with any questions! Have a great day.
Fundraising Goal: $15,000
