ABOUT THE MANUFACTURER

Smart Furniture LogoSmart Furniture was originally imagined in the mid 1990s by our founder and chairman Stephen Culp, a Naval Reserve Officer, attorney, and former Peace Corps Volunteer. At the time, Culp was a law student at Stanford Law School. The idea for the company came during a visit he made to Yahoo! during its startup years. The incredible growth Yahoo! was experiencing made it difficult for the company to keep up with the constantly changing need for space reconfiguration.

Culp realized that people needed an easily adaptable furniture system that allowed them to reconfigure spaces to their changing needs. In a small workshop in a professor's garage, he set out to create a furniture system that was both simple to assemble and easy to reconfigure as needed. He succeeded and received a patent on his Signature Line system.

By 1998, Smart Furniture was up and running in Palo Alto, California. Smart Furniture relocated to Chattanooga, Tennessee in 2001, where Culp expanded the company and founded a local manufacturing, warehouse, and shipment distribution system for the company's Signature Line products.

Along the way, Culp's experience in the Peace Corps provided a founding principle of Smart Furniture: Help people help themselves. This simple but effective principle was the basis for a business model he called Design on Demand. Smart Furniture's Design on Demand model was created to give both residential and business customers the opportunity to design their own spaces and customize furniture products to their needs, quickly and easily.

The next step was to make the model come alive through technology on our website, Smartfurniture.com. Our website's designer tool, free 3-D renderings, and integrated Google Sketchup technologies combined empower our customers to design, order, and receive everything from individual units to interior layouts, quickly and easily.

The result was a revolutionary solution incorporating state-of-the-art design, e-commerce and fulfillment capabilities that can deliver orders from concept to customer within a week. Such a short turnaround time is unheard of in the furniture industry.

    Comments about Smart Furniture 3x3 Storage Cubes:

    The shelves are great!!!! They look exactly as pictured and the instructions to put them together are HYSTERICAL!
    I had to stop a few times because I was laughing so hard.
    They are also very heavy...it was a matter of asking a neighbor to help carry them up my walkup but I could easily put the set together on my own.
    (I'm small, about 5'1", so this initially was a concern for me).
    Highly recommend them!!!

        I bought two of these shelves to help visually divide my living area from the dining section. Oh, yes, and to hold my books, which total about 300.

        The shelves arrived quickly and were incredibly easy to install. The design is brilliant and sturdy. It's only been a few weeks, but I don't see any sign of shelves buckling or cracking under the weight of my books. I was also concerned that the shelves might look cheap, but they look elegant and well made.

          These shelves are sturdy, great looking and easy to assemble. In fact, the instructions are not only clear and complete, they'll have you laughing out loud. I've found the shelves to be so well made and attractive that I ordered more. I'm using them primarily in my home office, although they'd look fine anywhere. They hold a lot of heavy books along with decorative items. Despite the weight, there's no evidence of any wobbling. I can't imagine anything that would improve them. Service was excellent,[...]Six stars!

            Great phone and online assistance before making my purchase. Since I live nearby I was able to pick up the product at the warehouse. The experience could not have been more pleasant or easier. I use two side-be-side to create a low shelving unit so there is room for wall art above.

                Can I mount on the wall if I only wants to put little Lego in each cube. How much does the 3x3 weight by itself. Thank you

                  We do not recommend mounting the 3x3 Storage Cubes on the wall. They are very heavy, even with nothing on it.

              • Q:

                I read from another question that these can be stacked. I'm wondering if this item could work as a room divider if I bought 4 units and arranged them in a larger square -- with 2 stacked units standing side-by-side. Are they sturdy enough to stand alone in the middle of a room? Thank you!

                  A:

                  The 3x3 would be great for an entertainment unit. It will hold the weight of the TV, as long as the base fits on top (most LCD bases for today's TVs should have no issues with that). If you have any other questions, please e-mail sales@smartfurniture.com

                Can I stack another identical 3 x 3 unit atop this unit. I want to create a library look in my home by lining the walls of a room with these 3 x 3 shelves. I was hoping that I could stack another identical unit atop the other so that it is 6 ft. high.
