Cardboard furniture that holds up to 1,000 pounds – real estate staging

Cost effective method to stage vacant listings

In a down economy, small business owners are looking for ways to save money. Some local Realtors spend big money on renting furniture for staging vacant listings, but an environmentally friendly and more cost effective staging tool is available in the form of cardboard-constructed reusable furniture. It’s sturdy, can be sat on, and helps buyers easily identify the purpose of a room and are not distracted by an inability to gauge size.

Not only for staging professionals, NextStageFurniture.com offers “lightweight corrugated cardboard structures designed for easy transport and simple assembly with no tools required,” made of 75 percent recycled materials. For naysayers, the company notes that most of their products can withstand 1,000 pounds, and we would note that there is a rise in popularity of corrugated cardboard furniture in chic offices and urban lofts, many of which are used as artistic, minimalistic statements without slipcovers.

NextStageFurniture.com features and benefits

Next Stage offers slipcovers that are high quality upholstery and one of the biggest benefits we see is that the corrugated cardboard furniture can be carried by one person and doesn’t require movers or extra staff, thus saving even more money. But what about when it rains while I’m unloading, you ask? The pieces come in a black, weatherpoof bag for transportation to protect from the elements.

For agents who can only realistically afford one or two sets, the furniture is perfect for vacant listings during a photo shoot to give a room more purpose rather than photographing a bare room. Staging professionals gain the biggest benefit from cardboard furniture, but photographers and real estate professionals should also be considering how temporary staging furniture that they can install themselves saves time and money and adds visual interest, ultimately increasing the chances of a faster sale.
