Happy New Year to all!
Each piece of furniture in there many shades of green™ line is made to order and constructed of solid Hevea wood. Hevea trees are known for their natural rubber-like sap.
These trees are tapped for their sap, much like a maple tree. This sap is the primary source for most of the world’s latex production. Hevea trees reach their maturity in 15 years, but stop producing sufficient sap after being tapped for 25 to 30 years. After this time, the trees are typically cut down and burned; while a new tree is planted in its place. Using these discarded trees for furniture production is a great form of sustainability.
Hevea wood is quite strong and can be compared to white oak or teak making it an ideal material for furniture construction. Each piece of furniture in our many shades of green™ line is finished in a water-based ZERO VOC paint by Mythic Paint, a leader in low VOC products and color design.
Just looking at the line will make you smile!
Wallpaper is making a come back (although it was never really gone, perhaps just a bit of a vacation!). A new line I am carrying by Madison & Grow gives a nod to the whimsical in all of us along with a sprinkling of mid-century modern (never a bad thing). They are also based in LA which automatically gives them hometown points! All Madison & Grow papers are crafted with the utmost care and are eco-friendly. The designs are hand-drawn before being scanned in for pre-press production. Screens are created and each roll is hand silkscreened using a water based ink. The papers are clay coated for extra durability and can be wiped clean with a damp sponge. Their manufacturing process emits no VOC's whatsoever.
