We recognise the need to balance great design and service with responsible and ethical environmental practices.
Our commitment to these ideals is demonstrated in our INT-COC-001353 and ISO 9001: 2008 awards, and our FSC® Chain of Custody certificate FSC-C015370. In addition, we are certified under PEFC Chain of Custody certificate INT-PEFC/COC-001353 .
The environment is everyone’s responsibility and we do our part by endeavouring that all of our timber originates from responsibly managed forests. As supporters of the tradition of good forest management, we purchase only suitably certified timber wherever possible.
FSC certified products available upon request.
All of our furniture is strength and stability tested to contract level.
The picture below shows the Harrier sofa undergoing strength and stability testing, to BS EN 16139:2013 Level 2 (severe contract use).
In this demanding test, seat and back durability is tested at least 100,000 times.
