I submitted my ‘Dinosaur Chair’ to and they accepted it!

They explain it better on their website, but is a way for designers to get furniture made, without having to fly to foreign countries or visit factories or organise shipping, and a way for manufacturers/ wholesalers/ retailers to get furniture made, without having to shell out large amounts of money and time (sort of like ‘Kickstarter’ but for wholesalers). I had to explain to my Aunty that it is pitched at wholesalers/ retailers rather than individual consumers, but there is a minimum order of 5 units, so if you want one get in touch.
I’m really excited by this. It works as a royalty system – ideally I’ll get a few sales by only having to focus on creating, rather than all the related business stuff. Also I need to move on from my ‘Dinosaur Chair’ as it is taking up a lot of my time and start expanding my portfolio with other pieces. I’m approaching it as an experiment to see what will happen, fingers crossed.
