To challenge the way upholstery is usually made, we have chosen not to use plastic foam.
Instead, we have developed upholstery in collaboration with the Naturalmat Company, which uses natural, sustainable and biodegradable materials – coir, latex and sheep’s wool.
This is better for our health as well as overcoming the significant environmental concerns surrounding the disposal of plastic foam in landfill.
