Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) May 13, 2014

http://www.kickstarter.com - Today marks the launch of a campaign to launch Flatgoods, an innovative new business incorporating sustainable design, responsible production & shipping practices, and customizable, ephemeral home goods. Plus, cats!

Flatgoods was created by entrepreneur James Mikrut, an enthusiastic and determined creator in Michigan dedicated to offering an affordable, yet stylish alternative to the environmentally unfriendly, low-priced furniture often found in offices, schools and homes.

“American offices are constantly upsizing or downsizing, and consumers are often trading up, replacing cheaper home furnishings with slightly nicer ones as budgets allow,” said James. “That creates a ton of waste [1], and sustainable disposal options for inexpensive used home goods are hard to come by. If furniture isn’t going to be around for decades, it absolutely needs to be easier on the earth. Flatgoods makes this possible, while still offering strong, stylish and customizable pieces.”

Add a company logo, some favorite pictures or even images from an Instagram account, to make Flatgoods furniture entirely your own. Great for pop-up shops and events, startup offices, schools and universities, art galleries, waiting areas, co-working spaces, dorm rooms, and much more!

Flatgoods furniture is made in the USA, using entirely recyclable renewable forest resources [2]. To back this extremely important and awesome project, click here. Backer rewards range from $1 (to be notified first when Flatgoods launches) to $1500 (for the chance to design an entirely custom piece of any style and dimensions), and include t-shirts you’d actually wear at $25 and access to the too-hot-for-Kickstarter, unrated version of our Flatgoods rap video, for just $5.
