The most sustainable furniture company in America must be sure to only use 100% reclaimed wood in its product thus harming no forest anywhere in the world. The next thing that is important is to develop a stain that looks beautiful, shows off the exotic grain of the vintage reclaimed wood and is non-toxic.
A lot of companies may claim to be “SUSTAINABLE” or “GREEN” but you won’t see this at other companies.
Yesterday I was taking pictures of a new product and put Nina (11 months) on the floor for a second. The next thing I know, she is covered in our stain. Someone in our office (I won’t name names) was working on a small test batch of stain for some samples and left a cup with a spoon in it on a table covered with wood samples. Nina likes to play with wood blocks (AKA wood samples) and headed over to test the product. Good thing the stain REALLY IS NON-TOXIC.
