Here at DailyTekk we write about tech — what else?! But every now and then I’m compelled to write about something that would be considered “low tech” rather than the “high tech” gadgets and apps we normally cover. And that’s the case today because at some point in everyone’s life you reach a place where you either need or want new furniture. And for everyone out there looking for the best, coolest, highest-quality or most affordable new furniture options, I’m here to help.

- The 3 Best Affordable UHD 4K TVs You Can Buy Right Now For Under $1,000
I’m the type of person who likes new things. I can tire of the same old options fairly quickly. So all of the usual furniture stores and brands hold less appeal for me than exciting new startups armed with innovative ideas and designs. And that’s what this post offers: 3 awesome (and completely unique) furniture startups that will help you turn your space into a place you really want to hang out in (and show off).
Greycork: Cheap Furniture, Easy Setup
Greycork furniture is nothing short of a revolution. Without having tried them (yet), it sure looks like Greycork is the best alternative to IKEA out there in terms of affordable furniture that’s super quick and easy to setup. You can get an entire living room set from Greycork for just $1,120 and set it up — in it’s entirety — in just 20 minutes flat without even needing to use tools. I mean, a sofa that sits three for under $500 ($450 to be exact)? That’s insane. Plus, it looks modern and quite comfortable.
Interior Define: Custom Sofas, Attainable Pricing
Alright, so we’ve taken a look at a great new low-end (budget) furniture option, but what about the high-end? Whereas Greycork brought innovation to the IKEA set, Interior Define (see what they did there?) brings an innovative approach to the luxury, custom market (for all of us who crave a look a little closer to Crate & Barrel). This furniture is outright stunning in it’s design. That means you can get a two-seater sofa that’s fashionable to the hilt for just $900. Since each piece is made to order, you’re sure to come away smiling.
Campaign: Easily Movable Furniture
Somewhere in-between the affordability and style of Greycork and Interior Define is Campaign, a company that offers a chair, a love seat and a sofa in several cool colors. And while the pieces look nice and are fairly priced, there’s something else that sets them apart from other “mere” furniture: they are easy to take apart and move (like, really easy). That makes them perfect for people who have some change coming up in their lives; i.e. the newly married or anyone moving into their first place. The benefits are obvious: the pieces pack up into easy to carry boxes making hiring movers and dented walls obsolete. And that’s awesome.
