Why Sustainable Furniture is the Future of Home Interior Design

Environmental awareness is growing steeply, and more people are aware of the implications of low-cost, mass batched furniture, fashion and interiors.

The future is sustainable.

Environmental awareness is growing steeply, and more people are aware of the implications of low-cost, mass batched furniture, fashion and interiors, meaning they are taking more time to consider their purchases and how they will affect their future on this planet.

Due to this, furniture retailers who specialise in beautiful bespoke designs made from raw materials and natural, ethically sourced wood are growing in prevalence because they can better control their source materials whilst continuing to create stylish and innovative designs.

At Parker Howley, we are proud to champion this.

We are furniture manufacturers who have stayed true to our core beliefs, this includes using locally sourced raw materials, natural timber and quality craftsmanship.

1. Timeless and Durable Designs

Bespoke, handmade furniture that is sustainably sourced can last far longer than mass produced furniture. Made with a loving hand, sustainable furniture is built to last and you won’t want to replace the personalised design with anything else.

At Parker and Howley, we invest in only the best natural materials which means our collections are not only strong and durable, but also unique and characterful in their own individual ways.

Let’s not forget to mention that the elegance of our wooden furniture never goes out of style.

2. Modern and Stylish

Reclaimed wood and upcycled designs are in high demand because they create modern, stylish and statement furniture.

More people than ever are seeking one of a kind designs to make their home feel special, unique and true to them, and furniture made using sustainable sources and production methods can achieve this feeling.

3. High Demand

Demand for eco-friendly furniture is on the rise, and the market for sustainable furnishings is set to nearly double by 2027.

People are becoming more conscious of the carbon footprint their household leaves, and this isn’t just reflected in the smaller things like toothbrushes and straws anymore, but the overall design features like furniture.

Speaking of high demand, do you know we’re the UK’s leading supplier of sustainable bespoke vanity units?

4. Free from Harmful Chemicals

Natural wood furniture built from raw materials is free from chemical treatments that are harmful to both people and the environment. There is huge demand for chemical free furnishings and fabrics to improve health and harmony in the home.

This also extends to using sustainably sourced fabrics and fabric dyes in the production of sofas, mattresses and other fabric laden home furnishings.

5. Fair production

Sustainable wood furniture is produced ethically and fairly from design of the product until the moment it arrives with the customer. This means it is made and designed by people who are being paid fair wages in factories that meet only the highest standards of trade production.

6. UK sourced materials

At Parker Howley, we use UK sourced raw materials and natural timber to create our fully bespoke, highly tailored, luxury furniture. We believe in the power of wholly ethical carpentry that is British sourced and British made to boost the economy, support local trade and reduce the carbon footprint of the furniture industry by keeping travelling distance to a minimum.

If you believe, as we do, that the future of interior design lies in sustainable furniture, please feel free to get in touch or browse our gallery of designs to discover how eco-friendly bespoke design can give your bedroom, bathroom and kitchen project a personalised, luxury look.
