We focus on using sustainable and healthy materials in our designs. You can get an overview of our certified materials here.
FSC®-certified wood and veneer
All wood we use is FSC®-certified. This means that it comes from responsible and legal forestry, which protects biodiversity in the forests that the wood comes from. FSC is the world’s most ambitious global certification for responsible forestry and considers all three sustainability parameters – social, economic and environmental. It is also the only certification and labelling system of its kind that is backed by recognised NGOs such as WWF and World Forests.
The EU Ecolabel
The EU Ecolabel is the official European eco-label, which certifies that a product is among the absolute least environmentally harmful in its category – throughout its entire life cycle. This is great news for the manufacturers who make it, for the environment and for our health.
All our upholstery fabrics and Soft Collection are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified. This means that the textile has been tested for harmful substances and is completely harmless to human and animal health. The testing is conducted by independent OEKO-TEX® institutes, taking into account both regulated and non-regulated substances that can be harmful to human health. In many cases, limit values go well beyond national and international requirements. The criteria are updated at least once a year and expanded on the basis of new scientific expertise and requirements.
LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX®
Our upholstery leathers – Quattro and Austin Nubuck – are LEATHER STANDARD by OEKO-TEX® certified, which means that they are, like STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®-certified textiles, tested for harmful substances and are completely harmless to human and animal health.
All the leather we use is from either Europe or Australia and is traceable. This means that we can trace the hide's journey all the way from the manufacturer and to your living room. This not only ensures that the leather is of the best quality, but also that it comes exclusively from areas where there are laws in place to protect animal welfare. The leather is a by-product of food production and we only use the best quality, making it a timeless and durable choice.
