Sustainability


Eco-friendly furniture is a way of combining environmentally conscious practices with long-lasting sustainable furniture that focuses on comfort, desirability and health.

When choosing sustainable furniture, you make an active decision to support a sustainable lifestyle. You show your support for green manufacturing practices, safer working conditions and reduced demand on natural resources.

Here are some important aspects to consider next time you go purchasing a piece of furniture:

Sustainable materials such as Jarrah hard wood frames and Australian made plywood construction. Also find out about the foam; Where is it made? Does it meet Australian standards? Is it high density? Fire retardant? And does it release risky carcinogens that you will be breathing in for the rest of the sofas life?

Make sure your furniture is built with high-quality, sustainable materials.
Look for furniture with non-toxic and environmentally friendly finishes.
