What is the Most Durable Sofa?

In my life, I have moved so much. From Germany to Italy via Paris and London...

 

Some of my furniture just simply fell apart. And this upset me, the pieces were not cheap at all. My sofa though - handmade in a workshop - looks nearly as it did on day one 12 years ago. And it has seen the upbringing of two very active babies - and survived our cat.

Part 6: Backrest and cushions

Seeing a piece of furniture come to life is a wonderful moment each time. We know that the piece of furniture will live in your home and will accompany you for a long time. I will be of highest quality and also feature only natural materials, no plastic, no toxins, no harmful materials or chemicals. We pride ourselves in carefully selecting materials only from trustworthy sources and being able to build an eco-sustainable piece of furniture that will bring joy to any customer and their home.

Part 5: Inside and outside cover

Building a sustainable piece of furniture takes experience, craftsmanship and in our case: an extra dose of 100% natural materials from only sustainable sources. We chose to build furniture only in this way, because we believe that we should not live with, or sit and sleep on anything that is built using harmful materials. Harmful for nature, our environment or our own health.

Part 4: Cotton, felt and latex

100% natural latex. On top of the jute material on the seating area, but also for the armrests and all around we are now applying a layer of 100% natural latex. The latex is delivered in large blocks and we cut it down to the needed sizes in the correct height and length using our large scale vertical saw. This process takes experience and craftsmanship, as the material is very soft and any push or pull in the wrong direction will result in an uneven cut.

Part 2: Building the wooden frame

High quality and longevity through certified wood. We’re now going to engage in construction of the wooden under-frame which is the foundation for the sofa. Since we designed the piece in 3D, we can precisely measure any parts for the wooden construction. We pride ourselves in longlasting, sustainable products and make all of our frames out of solid, FSC or PEFC certified wood.
