Today, for example, cat ladders, wall bridges, and shelf-tops are becoming increasingly popular, allowing cats to satisfy their natural need to climb trees and elevations.
Light fixture manufacturing
A light fixture in the shape of… a bunny, a star, a cactus, a ship… Whatever word you enter after that phrase in a search engine, almost certainly a matching query will be found and available for purchase from sites like “Amazon” But still, some ideas are still not realized, and they do not require expensive materials.

A keychain is not so much an item for the sake of functionality as it is an element of home comfort. After all, you can hang a bunch of keys on an ordinary nail, but a keychain will give the hallway the right atmosphere. Due to their small size and low cost of materials, many craftsmen make keys. The main mass of key rings costs about $10-$15. Nevertheless, if you sort the items on the site “Amazon” in descending order of price, you can see that the cost of some variants exceeds $500.

In addition, there is an increasing realization that any clutter and chaos is a waste of nerves and time searching for the necessary thing. Since this trend is built into almost any design and type of furniture, there can be many directions for your business. Especially not spared by this trend those things that used to require all the now annoying separateness, squareness and bulkiness.
