SmartDeco SmartStand: Join the Furniture Revolution <Review>

imagediclosure-review giveaway
SmartDeco Furniture pieces are like no other furniture that I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning. SmartDeco Furniture has 3 different pieces of furniture, which consist of an Intellidesk, a SmartDresser, and a SmartStand. They even offer bundles of the different furniture.

The SmartDeco furniture pieces are simply designed and easy to put together because they require absolutely no tools at all. The best part about it is they are 100% recyclable and made right here in the great United States of America!

I was hoping to get the SmartDresser, but ended up getting the SmartStand instead. The SmartStand is available in 2 colors; cardboard brown and white. They send me the white SmartStand.

I received it in no time flat, within a week/ week and a half to be exact. I was super excited when I seen the box being delivered to my house and I got a sneak peek at the label and it said SmartDeco Furniture. I immediately (of course) opened the box and started putting the SmartStand together. Of course, I had a very small 4 year old assistant who definitely thought she needed to help out.

All you have to do when the furniture (whatever piece you choose) arrives go to the SmartDeco website and click on assembly at the top of the page. Then just click on the piece of furniture that you received and get to building!

The video is super amazing. It shows you exactly which piece to choose first and an exact step-by-step tutorial of how to put the furniture together. The lady in the picture below puts it together, so that you can see how it’s done!

I laid the furniture pieces out on my couch and just took a piece at a time and followed the videos advice. For each piece that contained a duplicate (such as the drawers) I just rewound the video a little and replayed it if I forgot a certain step. The instructions are very easy to understand and follow along with!

The pieces pop right into place without a problem. Even putting the entire thing together by myself (I’m very handy lol) I had it fully constructed in less than 15-20 minutes. Of course about 3-5 of those minutes was spent laughing my butt off when I looked over and she had already taken the stand hostage as her “fort”.

She loved hiding inside of the stand while I was putting the other pieces together! She is absolutely adorable and she had fun “helping” and that’s all that matters. I definitely want to buy 2 more of these stands (one for each kid). It definitely makes an awesome desk for small kids.

Of course, since it’s white.. I let her decorate the sides of it anyway she wanted to. She had tons of fun coloring and designing Mama’s new <side desk>. I love how durable this is. She colored and colored and not once did it sway!!

I also love the fact that I can take either drawer out of the SmartStand and turn that space into something else. It has the potential for so many things. In my crafter mind I could totally see decoupaging fabric inside a space used for books, the drawers and sides painted contrasting colors, or just random “magazine” style clippings that fit your style in random spots! I love personalizing things and making them “mine”.. so I will definitely do something like that!

See how the top is glossy? It comes with a clear plastic cover that expands over the entire top of the SmartStand. I really like that because it protects the top from water damage (if you place drinks on the top), and natural wear and tear!

Of course she had to take her “own” pictures of the Smartstand! She’s amazing growing inside a 4 year old body, I tell ya! This fits perfectly inside our home! It is re-usable, so when we are done with it (should it ever tear up 5-10 years later) we could just recycle it. As someone concerned about the environment I’m raising my kids in, this is truly important to me.

As a crafter, the design possibilities are endless! That’s something else that matters to me. If I were getting just a regular stand, there’s no way I would feel comfortable painting it, drawing on it, or decoupaging fabric to it. I need furniture in my “office” to reflect who I am and this is just what I was looking for. Of course, you could always leave it the way it is if that’s what you like. It’s all up to you!

I truly love how modern and beautiful it is standing inside my office. It just captures the light with it’s amazing angles and the openness “air” feeling it has to it. I love that it can be used in many different ways, for so many different things, in any room in your home!
