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.

Modern prefab house comes with a James Turrell Skyspace for $14.5M

Museum-worthy

For $14.5 million you can expect to get a lot of house. A swimming pool is a given. A subterranean basketball court? Sure. This modern abode, just on the market, has all the standard outrageous amenities and more—the more being an original James Turrell Skyspace that sits in the home’s courtyard.

Marmol Radziner architects designed the Arrowhead House as an extravagant prefab oasis in the desert hills outside of Las Vegas. The location—arid and sunny—is perfect for one of Turrell’s Skyspace pieces, which are at their best when they act as a frame to a partly cloudy sky.

A flashy art piece is a remarkable thing to center a home around, to be sure, but Arrowhead is equally stunning without it. The C-shaped house has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a theatre, wine cellar, and a double-height living room. The floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the Strip from a distance.

Give your business a name. Name your business something that indicates what you sell. This will come in handy later on, when you are marketing your business and want people to associate your business name with handmade furniture.
File a DBA, which stands for “doing business as,” at your local county clerk’s office. You may want to do a search to ensure that no other business in your town is operating under the same name. If you live in a large metropolitan area, a search is a necessity.
Create a line of furniture. You’ll need to have models of each piece of furniture that you intend to sell, so that customers can easily visualize what you have to offer. Add to your furniture line each year so that your stock stays fresh and on-trend.
