A business with roots

Introducing Sustainable Furniture, an innovative business whose beautiful homewares are complemented by an ethical stance.

Here at Cornwall Living, we love a good story, and we’ve found a fantastic one in Sustainable Furniture, a Cornish company that is doing everything right: a family business that’s competing on the national stage, committed to producing stunning, high-quality products with ethics at its heart.

“… no two pieces are the same…”

Founded a decade ago by Margaret Larson in response to the influx of cheaply made, mass-produced, flat-pack furniture that flooded the market, Margaret wanted to promote beautiful sustainable furniture that is made to last, with the smallest possible impact on the environment.

Each piece of furniture has its own unique story to tell. Take, for example, the teak root furniture, as seen on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen. Produced from ethically-sourced, reclaimed teak roots, no two pieces are the same, each individual piece with its own twists and turns, creating a real focal point in any room and a talking point at your next drinks party. What’s more, it’s inspiring to see an agricultural waste product turned into a thing of beauty, helping to rejuvenate previously barren land and boost the local economy – it’s a win-win situation.

Sustainable Furniture has everything you could need to kit out your home, holiday home, or boutique hotel, including indoor dining sets, living, dining and hallway storage options, sofas, coffee tables and conservatory furniture as well as beautiful mirrors and home accessories. The huge range of outdoor furniture, from garden seats, memorial benches and picnic tables, to sunloungers and parasols, is particularly popular with pubs, restaurants and cafés.

All products are available for delivery both nationwide (often within 48 hours) and internationally. What’s more the team also offer a bespoke service, assisting you in designing furniture to suit your space and requirements. So if you have a project that requires some stunning individual pieces, why not give them a call? With commercial clients including the National Trust, English Heritage, and the BBC, you’ll find yourself in good company!
