What is a good material for staging furniture

  1. Jul 23, 2017 #1
    It must be light strong and inexpensive. This would be used to make staging furniture. So it is moved often.

    Why not use real furniture? If you make something special purpose and one of a kind, it will be expensive, and that will violate the "inexpensive" requirement.

    We use real couches, cheap ones that are light. . It is tables and bed that are the problem. I want to make something we can snap together that is light. But strong so it lasts. People don't use the furniture so maybe strong may have been the wrong word but durable would be better. We want to create something that with the exception of couches one person could move. Also something that is easily assembled and disassembled so it can be easily transported and stored.

    Welcome to the PF, Mary. :smile:

    "Staging" has a particular meaning for the military and for Fire and EMS. Your post seems to be asking about somehting else. Can you give some examples, maybe UPLOAD a couple of pictures, and post some links?

    LOL, who/what uses this furniture? Hamsters? Zebras?

    "Staging" here is a real estate term. It means decorating a room for show so it can sell better.

    @Mary waylde
    Probably the best thing to do would be to use inflatable mattresses and IKEA frames

    Use your imagination for props.

    Inflatable Couches/Beds might be useful.:smile::smile:

    I agree - air mattresses are the way to go.

    Oooohhhh! I guess I should have thought of that (sold our house a couple years ago, and it was indeed staged).

    Thanks Dale. No zebras were harmed in this thread. o0)

    Is this really a physics question? I suppose everything is physics in the end...
