His love for all things beautiful led him to launch his own interior decor collection called “Dōma Decor,” which features unique best selling 3D printed products by Vulkaza.

With his creative approach to interior design, Stephen is changing the way we think about our homes and how we can make them more beautiful, sustainable, and affordable.
How It All Began
At the time interior design guru had a very specific vision for his product line, and he was looking for a company that could bring his vision to life. Luckily, at the same time, Vulkaza’s COO Odeta was on a mission to find influential people who might be interested in creating collections with Vulkaza's plant-based PLA (polylactic acid) products. Thus, the timing was favorable for both sides. She came across Stephen and instantly knew that he would be perfect to work with.
After talking with Vulkaza’s COO Odeta, Stephen loved her energy and the vision behind the company. He was impressed by the company’s knowledge as well as its simple and laid-back approach to product creation.
Along the way, Vulkaza showed him a 3D drawing tool, which he found very user-friendly and cool. The ability to add textures, patterns, and adjust sizes was invaluable. In the end, Stephen chose to work with Vulkaza because of ability to help him realize his vision and bring his creations to life. As a result, a stunning collection of sustainable and budget-friendly interior design pieces were made.
Stephen’s Challenges: Learning About eCommerce and the Market
Before launching his interior decor collection with Vulkaza, Stephen Covic had to learn more about eCommerce and the market. He admits that he knew very little about either upon starting out. This forced him to spend a lot of time doing research so that he could learn more about them.
He also had to experiment with different marketing strategies to see what would work best for him. Fortunately, all his hard work paid off and he was able to successfully launch his collection. However, he says that if he had known more about eCommerce and the market from the beginning, it would have saved him a lot of time and effort.
Stephen was able to draw from the expertise of the Vulkaza team. Vulkaza helped him get started with the right resources and connected him with the right tools and 3D print products to sell.
"The folks at Vulkaza were friendly, patient, and understanding. They were all so nice and easy to work with which I always appreciated. I love working with them and I love the 3D printing concept. I really think that Vulkaza is on the cusp of being a leader for consumers and businesses.”- Stephen Covic
