- BARU’s founding team joined forces in 2018 to reinvent the furniture industry for the 21st Century.
- BARU makes shopping easier for 56% of shoppers who struggle to find furniture that fits their home.
- BARU collapses the $18B industry’s 12-month global supply chain into a 1-week hometown process.
BARU sells custom non-upholstered furniture to businesses and consumers. Customers personalize furniture with our augmented reality app. It's delivered in the following week from a local workshop. The custom product specifications are translated into manufacturing instructions for woodworking robotics. Workshops throughout the United States underuse their expensive machines. We help keep them busy. BARU books time on idle manufacturing automation like Airbnb books spare bedrooms.
BARU has the opportunity to be selling $1 billion of furniture in 5 years. We plan to have 200 workshops in our network in the largest 60 metropolitan areas in the US and Europe. Over 250 million shoppers live in those regions. With just four hours of machine time working for BARU, the 200 workshops will be able to make over $1 billion of custom furniture.
