We are living in a world where ‘disposable’ has become normality in so many aspects of our lives. Furniture is now like fast fashion for our homes, and it may be easy to see the appeal – low prices and ‘unmissable’ discounts! However, this furniture is mostly low-quality with sup-par materials and craftmanship – easily damaged and almost impossible to repair, so where does it end up…
Every year in the UK, 1.6 million tonnes of furniture and bulky waste is thrown away, buried in landfill or burnt in an incinerator. (suez.co.uk)
The Shelved System
With 22 million pieces of furniture discarded each year in the UK, it was our mission to create a system that encourages people to buy well and buy once.
This approach to design; ensuring a product is strong, robust, easy to build, and re-build, without any loss of functionality or strength, reduces waste and offsets a products carbon footprint across its much longer lifetime. The modular, re-configurable nature of our system allows the product to be re-used and re-purposed, so it can change and grow with you. Whether you're moving house, starting a family, or simply moving it to another room!
BRITISH DESIGN, BRITISH MANUFACTURING
Made in Britain
All of our furniture is manufactured in our factory in North Yorkshire, we have a very capable factory due to investments in the latest equipment and machinery – this factory services both Shelved and Rack Systems to ensure we can make our products as efficiently as possible with very little waste.
Everything we sell is made in the UK. From the steel, the board used for the panels, even our injected moulded components are all UK manufactured. This is something we pride ourselves on and feel extremely proud of.
All of our deliveries are flat packed, 99% of packaging is made from recyclable materials, and we carefully plan deliveries to reduce mileage.
