Are you short on cash but big on modern design? The Blu Dot Swap Meet might be just what you have been looking for. Last year, the makers of modern furniture debuted its first ever online swap meet with the intention of taking their philosophy of creating affordable design to the next level.
The site provided an opportunity for anyone who wanted to make an offer for a swap. Sawps could be in the form of goods or services and all reasonable trades were considered. The swap was such a success that Blu Dot is once again opening the Swap site for business.
... would-be customers who are low on cash and high on quirky talents can offer up goods and services in exchange for a piece of Blu Dot's minimalist, contemporary pieces. "Bartering was always a part of Blu Dot early on. Anybody we could convince to trade their services for furniture, we would do that," explains Christakos. "Our original [graphic] identity was designed in exchange for us designing and building a tree house for our friend who's a designer, for his son."
