Another cool kit-of-parts approach, this time from a small independent manufacturer titled Indie Furniture in Bern, Switzerland, making their mark with a Germanic attention to detail and engineering.

Their simple online tool lets you explore various straightforward sizing solutions, then order the pieces and parts needed for your particular configuration.

As small-business furniture ideas goes, this is about as good as it gets: something easy to replicate, scale and sell to large buyers and everyday consumers alike – a great model for those who wish to try their hands at this difficult-to-enter trade.

And the images help, too: retro-looking photos sell the indie ‘look’, showing it off in context, Instagram-style. And speaking of technology sites … next step: Kickstarter?
