These Heirloom-Quality Pieces From CB2 Are Designed With Longevity in Mind
Sustainable design has found itself in a moment of collective consciousness over the last decade.
Consumers are increasingly aware of the environmental impact of their everyday actions, including where they shop and what they buy, and know the path to a better world often starts small—right in their home.
There’s, of course, the larger green initiatives you can take in the building and planning stages of your design journey, but outfitting your place with eco-friendly furniture is an accessible entry point for renters and buyers alike.
Now more than ever, design companies are making strides to support these decisions, taking a look in the mirror to create a more circular business model and a larger breadth of sustainable and long-lasting product options.
"For us and many more in the industry, ‘quality’ includes responsible design and smart craftsmanship–reducing our footprint on the environments we source from in the long run," says Andrea Erman, Product Design Lead of lifestyle brand CB2.
Responsible design starts with the material, whether it’s using wood from responsibly managed forests or timeless materials like stone and marble that, with continued care at home, can age in place with you for many years to come.
"We believe the changes we make today transform the way we live tomorrow and it is something our brand continues to embrace openly whether it be about environmental improvement, climate neutrality, or diversity in design," says Erman. For CB2’s own sustainability journey, that means 60 percent Certified Preferred Fibers grown without chemicals or pesticides in their textiles and 50 percent Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)®-Certified furniture by 2025.
