2019: We are happy to participate in the Wood Furniture Scorecard process, and learn more about how to source wood products that is sustainable and certified. We have created a Wood Sourcing Policy for our company, and will adhere to this when working with our suppliers. Additionally, most of our wood products are made by craftspeople in New England. These are folks who truly care about the quality of the product that lands in your home. Gorgeous woods, thoughtfully made. Preservation and conservation are values that are important to us.
We are committed to offering eco-friendly options, sustainably made and safer for our homes and environment. We are happy to share that almost all of the upholstery at Circle Furniture is Fire Retardant (FR) FREE. Circle Furniture offers upholstery with soy-based cushions. The fill for seat, back and throw pillows is inserted into a 100% woven cotton ticking. Seat cushions are wrapped and back cushions and throw pillows are filled with post-consumer regenerated fibers keeping drink bottles from the landfill with each sofa purchase.
