We’re live!

June 13, 2008

Three months ago, Ivanova and myself started to talk about creating a furniture business in SL. On March 27, we paid the first rent for our workshop, and in those last three months we were very busy making concepts, building prototypes, working on textures and designs, making budgets, discussing prices etc. And now, finally, we went live!

Last night we uploaded 24 versions of the “San Jose” couch to our OnRez and SLX storefronts, and this morning we set them live. And soon the workshop floor will be converted to a store as well, so the furniture can be bought in-world as well.

To start with, we have 12 designs for the San Jose’s, named Anthracite, Cotton, Denim, Green, Jade, Mint, Ocean, Poppy, Red, Royal, Suede and Velvet. Each design features fitting wooden endcaps, and a metal handle. It seats up to 5 avatars, and randomly selects one of 3 poses (by Pillow Talk). The seating order is left, middle, right, middle-left, middle-right, but sitting on the endcaps places you directly to middle-left or middle-right. We tried to make the seating as natural os possible, and there’s a lot of subtle random details in the seating as well.

Right now, there are two versions of the San Jose. The no-copy/transfer version will be sold for 350 L$, and is perfect as a gift. For 800 L$ you get a copyable version, which in turn is not transferable. All models are full mod, so you can tweak the hues or add custom scripts inside. We would advise you however to not modifiy the scripting component unless you have a copyable version.

The San Jose’s are available at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Beachwood/174/204/60 as well as on OnRez and SL Exchange.
