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.

This resort was inspired by the celestial energy of its island site

The Villa Kosmos sits on the edge of a cliff on South Korea’s Ulleungdo island.

Located on the volcanic island of Ulleungdo in South Korea

Its white peaks and organic rooflines create a striking contrast to the site’s rocky environs and the sea beyond. Together, it is said that the land and the water emanate a healing energy that represents the balance and harmony of the philosophy of yin and yang.

It makes sense, then, that this magnificent backdrop becomes the setting for Healing Stay Kosmos, a luxury resort that offers accommodations across two sculptural buildings designed by Kim Chanjoong, founder of the Seongnam-based The_System Lab.

“I wanted it to be a container of ‘energy’ rather than a building,” Kim said, “and I hoped it to become a kind of celestial tool that can contemplate and feel the natural phenomenon of the universe and the earth.” The resort’s main building, the private Villa Kosmos, was inspired by the path of the sun and the moon, manifesting as six spiral “branches” that appear to swirl around a central courtyard.

Villa Kosmos includes four guest rooms, each of which boasts high ceilings that frame stunning views of the surrounding landscape—each one different. They include views of the sunset, sunrise, Songgot-bong (a majestic rock formation), and Elephant Rock, an elephant-shaped rock formation in the water. Two saunas and an an infinity hot tub offer guests the opportunity to soak it all in.

The secondary building, Villa Terre, features a line of arched roofs and includes seven guest rooms, each with sea views. Take a look.

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.
