The Guinness World Record broke, our furniture didn’t: exclusive photos

The Guinness World Record broke, our furniture didn’t: exclusive photos

Furniture is a long-term investment, and durability is key. That’s why all furniture sold under FurniSure on Flipkart is put through a rigorous testing process that mimics 10 years of intensive use. To prove that we really mean business, we conducted a little experiment in one of our warehouses, and ended up breaking a Guinness World Record in the process.

Yes, you read that right!

The Guinness World Record for the most number of mattresses stacked on a single bed was 18, at a height of 5.2 metres. We proved that FurniSure’s durability-certified Flipkart Perfect Homes bed could easily break this record by stacking a whopping 45 mattresses on it at a height of 6.95 metres. In other words: the world record broke, but our furniture didn’t.

 

Here are some exclusive photos from the event:
