I owned a bar once upon a time and we really bootstrapped it. We were short on start up money and needed a bunch of tables. These tables also had to be quite durable as our clientele tended to drink and carry on quite a bit. I'll admit that it wasn't me but my partner Scott that came up with the idea. Industrial spools. We found a place in Montreal that sold and re-sold huge industrial spools, the kind that can carry a few miles of telephone wire, anywhere from two to ten feet in diameter. We rented a van and went down there. The place was totally fine with us helping ourselves to six spools, each about four feet high and four feet in diameter. We simply sanded them down and applied generous amounts of shellac. They turned out beautifully.
A good way to help people find your store is to offer the chairs with on-line auction sites, even if you break-even on the sales, it is an excellent way to find new customers. Establish yourself on a regular basis and your customer list will grow quickly. Make sure that you make known that you are willing to take special orders of your products in fabric choices they may prefer.
Many workers today spend much of their waking life sitting in a chair in front of a computer. As such, it makes sense to take a moment to consider the effect that office chairs have on our productivity and health. Ergonomic office chairs are a sound investment in your health and your effectiveness at work or in your home office. Opting for a well-padded, adjustable chair for office is a smart idea if you spend a lot of time at your desk. Fortunately, you have a number of options when it comes to chairs that are designed to meet your unique posture needs at office.
I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
The internet proves to be a good choice where you can create a website to display pictures of your custom-made chairs on the website. Include all of the information of what is available for people to order, on your website. Just make sure that your website is easy to use and easy to place orders on too. If your site makes it too difficult to order your chairs in preferred fabric choices and sizes, people will give up and look for another company to deal with.
Be sure to keep the size in proportion to the room as well as the additional decorative elements, though: a wide molding in a small room filled with fine, dainty furnishings will appear gawky and awkward. Too slender a rail in a larger room decorated with grand set pieces of furniture could look too insignificant and frail for the setting it is placed in. All the chair molding ideas you think about should take into consideration the design of the home where they will be seen.
