The Custom Furniture Business: Creating Beautiful and Timeless Designs
Small businesses are the soul of America

More people are interested in buying locally made products than ever before. You can capitalize on many consumers’ return to local shopping by emphasizing that all components of your furniture are made in the United States, or in your town or area. The same applies to handmade goods. Individuals who are tired of mass-produced goods are often the same people who are interested in buying locally. Given this climate, it is a good time to start a handmade furniture business.

Gorgeous barn conversion can be yours for $680K

The L-shaped barn in Österlen, Sweden, was built in 1901.

Rustic meets a minimalist aesthetic

This impressive barn conversion in Österlen, Sweden, is the stuff of dreams. The original structure was built in 1901 and had since fell into disrepair, but the current owner saw potential and transformed it into a gorgeous 390-square-meter (4,200 square feet) home with four bedrooms and soaring common spaces.

The renovation of the L-shaped residence, now on the market in Tunby, Tomelilla, imbues the farmhouse with a bright minimalist aesthetic that highlights the structure’s strong bones. Paneled and vaulted beamed ceilings create height—6.8 meters high, or 22 feet, in the great room—and also preserve the property’s rustic roots.

Other features include polished concrete floors; an abundance of windows, French doors, and skylights; and incredible outdoor spaces. But the showcase room is the aforementioned open-plan living area with double-height ceilings, sculptural fireplace, and a concrete staircase leading up to one of the bedrooms. The space flows into a massive open kitchen and dining area with French doors opening directly onto a wooden deck. Set on 1.5 acres, the property is offered at 5.995 million Swedish Krona ($680,000).
