Our upholstery features only beautiful fabrics that meet our high standards for sustainability and quality. Choose from over 35 that are either Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified (Winthrop) or OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified (Orcas and Palouse).
We use resilient, chemical flame retardant free, Dunlop natural rubber in our cushions and to wrap our solid hardwood frames. Our natural rubber is produced using sap from rubber trees that are sustainably harvested in Sri Lanka. Once a tree reaches 7 years old, the sap can be tapped twice daily. At age 32, when a tree stops producing sap, the wood is used in furniture, and another rubber tree is planted.
We use responsibly sourced, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, solid maple wood for our frames and legs. We do not use engineered wood, composite wood, or particle board. Only honest-to-goodness, solid maple wood.
We use organic wool in our upholstery as opposed to synthetic battings. Both needle punched organic wool sheets and organic wool batting. Our organic wool comes from sheep raised in New Zealand and is certified organic by Oregon Tilth. It's also processed in the US. While wool is more expensive than synthetic fibers, we think it's well worth the investment. We especially love it because it's naturally flame resistant, cushiony, dust mite resistant and biodegradable!
We use either sinuous springs or eight-way hand tied springs. We choose the highest quality, heaviest gauge steel for the best support and long-lasting durability. Both are made from recycled steel, as all steel is recycled these days. Any piece can be made using the eight-way hand-tied springs, if it's not listed as such for an up-charge – we'd be pleased to do that for you!
We use only Rubio Monocoat Natural Oil Plus 2C Finish on our solid wood legs. It is the leading plant-based, environmentally responsible, sustainable, nonpolluting, durable wood finish. It's the best we've seen over our many years of experience!
