New and sustainable challenges for our common future: the main one is creating a green lifestyle to save nature, resources and our Earth.

We can focus to reduce waste, minimize energy, food and other resources choosing wisely sustainable furniture. A new idea of living provides for no – toxic and ecological tables, chairs, sofas and more.
We dont’think that furniture could have an environmental impact but for production toxic materials and chemicals are used. We don’t think that the pollution produced by furniture could be like cars and industry! In the production solvents such as paints, stains and glue have an emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Furthermore wood used to create furniture is from tropical forests. This is a negative use of land, soil and landscape. Packaging materials on environment (plastics, aluminium, paper) must be removed in an environmentally responsible manner. We don’t forget the use of fossil energy for the necessary production operations and then the problem of residues of furniture industry (planer chips, sawdust).
