A balance between technology and the environment
Today, with an ever increasing awareness about our environment, choices are now not only more diverse-sustainable harvested wood, non-toxic finishes and furniture upholstered with sustainable and organically produced, low-impact dyed fabrics-but abundant, making eco-friendly material more affordable than ever.
Our mission is to provide eco-friendly products while demonstrating that business can be conducted in a socially responsible manner.
Green retailing means offering products that endure, structurally and artistically, without harming either the environment or the people that make or use them. We are committed to ecologically sound business practices.
We feature functional designs that are crafted by quality conscious woodworkers, and are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council for their conscientious use of sustainable, responsibly harvested wood.
Our goal is to offer our customers high quality, simply styled furniture and bedding at the lowest prices possible, while maintaining our commitment to the environment, and using natural, eco-friendly and recycled materials whenever possible.
We choose local vendors based on their commitment to a fair price, as well as maintaining the highest social and environmental standards for workers.
Natural, Sustainable Materials
Most of our wood framing is crafted from kiln-dried hardwood from sustainable managed forests or bamboo. Bamboo is an ecologically friendly choice since it is a grass and matures much quicker than trees. Bamboo contains 35% more oxygen than an identical stand of trees, and is harder than rock maple, which is one of the hardest of our North American woods. SC41 does not sell tropical hardwoods, MDF, particle board, or toxic glues.
Cushions and Upholstery
Made with low-impact materials, all natural latex, wrapped in down or wool with luxurious organic fabrics.
Sink into sumptuous silk. It adjusts to your body temperature; warmed in the winter, cooler in the summer. Low-impact, fiber reactive dyes that reduce waste water runoff.
Ours is made from organic cotton not broken down with harsh chemicals. It is stronger and softer than conventionally grown cotton. Fabric made from bamboo contains a natural antibacterial property to resist mildew growth, and has a silk-like hand that is softer than cotton.
SC41 chooses to offer high quality furniture from eco-friendly manufacturers. These products are not only stylish but made in an environmentally conscientious manner that allows you to rest comfortably in both body and mind.
The designers at SC41 are trained in all aspects of interior design and space planning. From consultation on room functionality through color, mood and space utilization, you will find us to be experienced, knowledgeable and an invaluable asset in designing an environmentally friendly home for your family.
