Welcome to The Funky Little Chair . . .

VALUED STUDENTS: Our Minneapolis classes are momentarily on hold as we all work together to flatten the curve. We look forward to restoring events as soon as circumstances permit – it is always our honor to share upholstery with you. 

In the meantime, we encourage you to spend this time reading, practicing, and staying connected. 

It’s also an ideal time to explore our online tools. We’ve designed content that we believe is helpful on its own or in partnership with live training.  In short – we hope these resources will be effective as instruction for the moment, and as preparation for the future. 

Until we meet again <3
