Deadline Newsroom - Tab 'A' in Slot 'A' staging
Now you can stage homes for sale with lightweight, collapsible chairs, sofas, tables, and beds that can be assembled quickly without any tools.
Later, just as easily, an entire home of furnishings can be folded away and stored in a garage.
Each piece of NextStage Furniture is made of corrugated cardboard , but it can support up to 1,000 pounds. When the furnishings are fitted with slipcovers, the open house looks like the real thing -- for a lot less time and money compared to conventional staging.
The living room, for example, sells for $429, the dining set, $379, but you can use them again and again. Buy full rooms or individual pieces as needed. Accessories include a range of faux flat-screen TVs, computer monitors and laptop computers.
"Our products allow a once expensive, multiple person job, to be done more cost effectively by a single person. These savings are realized not only in the cost of the furniture, but in the storage and transport as well," says vice president Jeff Waltrip.
"Staging a property is proven to increase the sale price, while reducing the time on the market. NextStage allows staging to be done in more properties than ever before," he added.
