Low carbon office furniture

Our mission is to reduce the carbon emissions and cost of office furniture.

We do this by remanufacturing high quality furniture to as-new condition and creating furniture ranges from waste materials.

Furniture is the biggest source of carbon emissions in a commercial building – we reduce this by 80% while saving money for clients and creating jobs for local long-term unemployed with disabilities.

Our 300+ projects prove that every office can be beautiful, sustainable and cost less.
