London Wooders- Unto This Last
This place is pretty genius. Unto This Last is based in London making furniture, like this here Facet Chair, on their good ole CNC machine.
What makes em smart is they don’t ship and they don’t package up their items, so they pass on their savings to the customer. This is the Cell Shelf.
If you’re a Londoner, you can swing buy and get a great deal on what they have in their store front, or order something to size and they crank it out in a week. I have me a thing with wooden lamps/lamp shades.
Customers get a really cool piece of furniture, fast, quick and cheap. I guess the downside is, you know… you have to live in London. Smart though all the same. Would people come buy my furniture if I produced it out on the cheep? Think it’s that CNC machine that helps crank out goods so fast though, and I’m but one CRK machine, and s-l-o-w.
