Sustainability is woven throughout everything we do. As a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, we love a product that looks good and does good. Here are a few sustainable home decor items that exhibit our passion for supporting healthy environments, inside and out.

1. Made from recycled materials

When we can take a consumer good and recycle it into something beautiful, we're all for it.

Outdoor chair made from recycled plastic

Emmet chair & ottoman

Emmet is made in Duluth, Minnesota, from 100 percent recycled high-density plastic. Each chair saves 300 milk jugs from going into landfills! Eco-friendly, durable, comfortable and easy to care for, Emmet is an outdoor classic.

Hooks made from recycled plastic

Orr wall hook

These indoor/outdoor wall hooks are also made from 100 percent recycled high-density plastic that primarily comes from post-consumer products like milk jugs.

2. Made from reclaimed materials

These are one-of-a-kind finds, only available to purchase in-store! Check your local store for availability. 

Mirrors made from reclaimed wood

Foundry mirror

Salvaged from Cleveland's Taylor & Boggis foundry, these hand-made wooden circular patterns were once used to form sand molds for the production of iron parts and components. Each piece is restored and repurposed into frames for these unique mirrors.

Pillows made from vintage rugs

Ridvan pillows

The front of each pillow is made from a century-old vintage Kilim rug, originally handmade in Turkey. They have a variety of patterns, colors and textures that encompass the Kilim tradition.

3. Made from leftover lumber

We use wood from carefully managed forests and strive to get the most material out of every piece of lumber. We've created products made from the small pieces left over so we can use less wood to create more furniture.

Candle stick holders made from scrap wood

Our Halifax candle holders are crafted from rich walnut that comes from lengths of wood left over after making dining tables. These modern candle holders are sized for tapers on one end, tea lights on the other.
