We believe there’s a huge opportunity to rethink our relationship with our planet and reimagine how we make products.

It’s why we’re committed to changing the upholstery industry and finding better ways of designing, making, selling, delivering, and ultimately recovering and recycling sofas.

The Sofa Cycle

We’re making a difference across the sofa cycle.

We believe it’s essential to find innovative solutions that protect our planet. Solutions that help us move away from a take-make-dispose approach and instead move us towards regenerating, repurposing and recycling. It’s why we follow the principles of a circular economy. We call it the Sofa Cycle.

Simply put, the Sofa Cycle means we aim to maximise resources and minimise waste. It means reviewing every stage of the process in our pursuit of sustainability, from how we source raw materials, how we design products, to how we recover and recycle old sofas.

We want to minimise the impact we have on the environment and take a circular approach to sustainability. As a leading manufacturer and retailer, we have a duty to reduce our carbon footprint and drive positive change.

Sofa Packaging

Sofa Packaging

All of our sofa packaging is 100% recyclable and when we deliver a sofa, we take care to remove the packaging from your home so we can recycle it. We are always working with our suppliers to remove any materials that are difficult to recycle or damaging to the environment.

Wood & Leather

Wood & Leather

We have clear policies on wood and leather sourcing that state it must be legally and sustainably harvested and protective of human rights. Our aim is for all of our sofa frames to be made from 100% FSC certified wood by 2025 and we have conducted an independent audit on our leather sourcing to ensure further rigour.

As a business, we work hard to source wood and leather as sustainably as possible, and we go further by also contributing to reforestation. We work rigorously with our suppliers, including lists of what we will not accept in our furniture, and have recently updated our policies on timber and introduced a new policy on the leather we use.
