Flat-pack furniture is sometimes hailed as an eco-friendly wonder. Why? It reduces transportation, as you can fit more into a truck to prevent additional delivery trips and fuel stops. Unfortunately, that benefit is usually negated by the fact that flat-pack furniture simply doesn’t last. Once it inevitably breaks, cracks or wears beyond belief, it ends up in landfills or incinerators.
At Furniture.co.uk, we take a different approach. Larger pieces of furniture like beds and wardrobes are delivered partially assembled, so we can get it to the exact room customers need it. However, the vast majority of our products are solid furniture. While we miss out on the marginal gain of flat-pack delivery, we move much closer to true eco furniture with our commitment to longevity.
By designing and crafting solid furniture, our eco-friendly pieces are much too good to throw away. Whether it’s upcycling to match a new design trend or finding a new home for furniture that still looks great, our sustainable furniture can easily have a second, third or fourth life.
