How Kickstarter Works
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform. In exchange for rewards (in our case, pieces from the new collection, and smaller products created in our workshop), backers pledge to give a certain amount of money to a campaign. If the campaign target goal is reached, the backers receive their rewards and creators receive their funding (hooray!). If the goal isn't reached entirely, then no funding is received at all (boo!).
We have been creating furniture from our small-batch workshop for two years (if you didn't know this - check out our sister site Perrymans Fine Woodworking), working from our own designs and in close relationships with clients. We've loved it. But we want to take the next step.
We want to create our first signature collection of five pieces, demonstrating the best we can achieve, and exhibit them at a London design show (we'll be applying to exhibit at MADE Canary Wharf and MADE Marylebone). We'll create a lookbook and accompanying graphics, and speak face-to-face with the industry professionals that we believe can introduce our furniture to new customers and environments. We'll also show the collection in our Lewes store, rebranding as The Perrymans Store and hosting a launch event to the public to promote and publicize the new work.
In return for helping us take our dream business to the next step, we've put together a collection of rewards that go some way towards expressing our gratitude, (these include pieces from the collection, and, for smaller bidders, chop board bundles, phone stands and invites to the collection launch).
