Better Quality Products for a Better Quality of Life
In 2015, the Nielsen Company released a report concluding that a brand's comitment to sustainability was so important that 66% of consumers worldwide were willing to pay for more sustainable brands. That figure was up 11% from the previous year, and in recent years consumers across every region continually demonstrate that corporate social responsibility and sustainability practices drive their purchasing decisions.
Our commitment to superior quality products
The adage "you get what you pay for" always holds true. Buying the lowest price model or brand of a particular item doesn't always end up being cheaper in the long run. Our Italian-made wall beds, in particular, are highly technical and complex pieces of furniture, built to last and hand-crafted in the same family-owned factory since 1962. Not only do we offer the only lifetime warranty in the industry, the furniture is modular, so if an individual element is damaged it can be replaced rather than having to discard the entire unit.
We know from our 20 years of experience that sound corporate responsibility practices contribute to the production of high-quality products.
Our commitment to environmental sustainability
More than a third of the 2.2 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere each year comes from North American homes, offices, other buildings. Living in a smaller, more energy-efficient spaces is the most economical way to make a dent in greenhouse gas emissions. Beyond this more sustainable end result, our individual products boast many important, environmentally-sustainable features.
Our Clei wall beds, for example, are manufactured under the safest and most stringent, eco-friendly standards.
- Composite wood products are composed of a minimum of 90% recyclable materials.
- New chipboard panels are made of renewable, controlled virgin wood rated E1 or better, featuring the highest quality raw materials to allow for a 35% reduction of scraps whilst also reducing energy consumption.
- Paints and lacquers are VOC-free, water-based, and non-toxic.
- Any integrated lighting is LED which allows for 80% energy savings compared to incandescent bulbs.
- Ultra high-tech panel manufacturing enables sealed routing and edge-binding with sawdust recapture and gas by-product capture.
