KAREN KOCHMAN NIELSEN
Packaging Design ’96

Karen Kochman Nielsen founded Dandy Pack, lightweight cardboard furniture for home staging, the act of furnishing a property for sale to help it sell faster and for more money. Dandy Pack furniture folds up flat; canvas slipcovers in five different colors make it look realistic. She came up with the concept in 2005: as a home stager, her profits were being funneled into buying furniture that was heavy and difficult to move.
