AGE: Twenty one years old COMPANY: SmartDeco Furniture HOMETOWN: Los Angeles, California
Trent Mayol is changing the world, one dresser at a time. Trent, along with the majority of college students, grew frustrated with the IKEA’s and Bed, Bath, and Beyonds of the world. He was tired of buying furniture and having to use tools and hundreds of parts. He wanted something easier…so he made it himself in SMART DECO FURNITURE. He built a sustainable, environmentally friendly product that was extremely easy to assemble. No tools. No parts. No hassle.
Trent ingeniously utilized the science behind an arch to produce products that fold together easily and sustain their shape based on simple physics. He also only utilizes recycled materials for the company’s products. Trent truly emphasizes SMART in the name on multiple levels; from sustainability to efficiency to affordability to ingenuity….to any other word that end with y that you can thing of, Trent is obviously a smart fellow and applies that intellect in ways that transcend the furniture game.
