A Closer Look: Lemonade Stand

At 80% the size of our standard Serving Center (32.75″ wide x 20″ deep x 33″ tall), the Lemonade Stand is ideal for any child. It’s constructed of extremely durable honeycomb board in order to withstand the wear and tear of everyday play. Remember – assembly requires zero tools and can be completed in just minutes!

What is honeycomb board?

FunDeco’s “honeycomb board” is a corrugated, low-density fiber substrate with a closed-cell honeycomb core. Both lightweight and extremely durable, honeycomb board is a rare blend in the furniture industry. Backed by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, our boards are made with 100% renewable resources and contain a minimum of 20% recycled fiber. The SFI is a responsible, fastidious company which utilizes rigorous third-party certification audits to ensure proper care is being taken during the production of their products. In the wake of a green ecology takeover, this versatile board uniquely responds to the market need for a combination of form, function, and sustainability.

Our honeycomb board is so strong that it ships to us on palets made of… you guessed it, honeycomb board!

Lightweight durability is a daily obstacle faced by the engineers at Ferrari S.p.A., the luxury sports car manufacturer based in Maranello, Italy. For several years Ferrari has been experimenting with cardboard in their side panels and dashboards to help make their vehicles more aerodynamic. The material has also been used in the production of Recreational Vehicles. In our book, if it’s good enough for Ferrari’s cars, it’s good enough for our coffee tables!

How It Works: Wall Graphic

The third installment of How It Works is a real eye-catcher. Unlike many of the prominent items sold by FunDeco, the Wall Graphic is not constructed of honeycomb board; instead, it’s made out of 6 millimeter vinyl based film with a strong adhesive. Just like other popular versions, our Wall Graphics can be reapplied a multitude of times while still retaining their stickiness. However, our Wall Graphics won’t leave a $100 hole in your checkbook — because they’re being offered for the incredibly low price of just $40! Yup, less than half of what you’d spend with ‘those other guys.’

Our Wall Graphics are  46″ x 46″, a perfect size that immediately draws attention to the vibrant colors and collegiate logo. Check out the awesome schools we’re officially licensed for:

A Closer Look: Children’s Dollhouse

One of the more popular items produced by FunDeco has been our Children’s Dollhouse. Measuring 32″ wide, 28″ tall, and 17.5″ deep, the Dollhouse is the perfect size for any child. The most staggering aspect? The price: just $25! Made of the same rigid, lightweight honeycomb board that is used in our Serving Centers, Bean Bag Toss Games, Wall ClocksPub Tables, and more, our Dollhouse is sturdy enough to withstand damage inflicted by your little ones.

All rooms in the FunDeco Dollhouse are brightly decorated with wallpaper, moulding, flooring, fireplaces, and area rugs – all printed directly on the interior walls.

How It Works: Wall Clock

Welcome to the second edition of How It Works, a chronicle of each item offered from FunDeco furniture & decor. Our next piece up for examination is the ever-popular Wall Clock.

FunDeco Wall Clocks are made of the same rigid, lightweight material that is used in our Serving Centers, Bean Bag Toss Games, Pub Tables, and more. When you receive your clock you will find an instruction sheet, return form, AA battery, and parts warranty enclosed.

The set-up couldn’t be easier. Place the battery into the slot on the back of the clock, then simply wind the crank on the timekeeping mechanism til you’ve got the correct time. Done. The chrome edging is already attached, along with the clock hands and winding mechanism. Hang on the wall via the built-in hole and you’ll never be late again!

One Giant Leap for Mankind, err… Pencils

Here at Color Ink, we delve into all sorts of unique projects. Our most recent undertaking is an over-sized, three-dimensional pencil intended for use in ‘back to school’ displays or other educational settings. Made of quarter-inch honeycomb board, our giant pencil is four inches wide and measures a hair under six feet tall. Yes, it’s probably taller than you. Let’s take a peek!

Only two inches shorter than Aaron Rodgers, our pencil is roughly ten times larger than your standard yellow #2 writing apparatus.
