Home Staging Tips and Advice

The NextStage Furniture story

Married to a home stager, Kevin Neilsen often found himself called on to help his wife, Karen, lug heavy furniture up flights of stairs, from room to room, or out to the van. After a full day of work, this wasn't his idea of relaxation. He thought there had to be a better way.

Then it hit him. Cardboard. Cardboard furniture. Inexpensive, light and foldable, it was perfectly suited to the home stager who didn't have a huge warehouse or a truck to move the furniture. And surely it could be made sturdy. He began tinkering, and came up with a rough prototype, then turned to Jeff Waltrip, a friend with extensive experience in packaging. He designed a more polished prototype, and NextStage furniture had begun.

While it's easy to store, assemble, transport and carry, NextStage Furniture is remarkably sturdy. A NextStage chair can support more than 1000 pounds. Once covered, it's indistinguishable from real furniture. Yet a loveseat weighs only 25 pounds. You can fit an entire home's worth of furniture in a van or store it in a corner of your garage. You can carry around enough furniture to stage a living room and dining room and a bedroom in a Honda Civic. And the savings are huge you can own four NextStage sofas for the price of a single real one.

To learn more and begin using NextStage furniture to grow your home staging business, have a look for yourself.
