Rhode Island-based flat-pack furniture startup Greycork has a fun way to test out their pieces before you commit. The home try-out kit is the first of its kind in the industry.

While you can often order fabric swatches before buying something upholstered, Greycork takes it a step further by including a wood sample. The home try out kit also includes all the pertinent info on the pieces, accompanied by slides so you can picture what that sofa looks like in the corner.

Greycork debuted last year with a super successful Indiegogo campaign, and has since scored $1.6 million in seed funding, made their first appearance at ICFF, and opened up to live online ordering. Their expanded living room collection, Felix, includes a sofa with chaise, bookcase, coffee table, and side table, for just $1750. Here's how it assembles:

Pieces are also available individually, starting at $200 for the side table.
