Sulfaro Furniture, beautifully crafted and finished, is made with the goals of comfort, quality and durability. Add to this superb design and the very best in components and materials. The end result is superb, hand-built handcrafted furniture that is guaranteed on workmanship to last you a lifetime. But Sulfaro Furniture is offered for sale with another major benefit in mind – sustainability.
Currently there is a television advertisement running for another furniture retailer where a sofa is dropped from a plane, pirouettes through the sky to ultimately crash in a desert landscape. It’s a pretty accurate depiction of why cheap, poorly made furniture is not only a poor selection on quality and durability but it’s also accurate in that most imported, cheap furniture will find its way to landfill within a relatively short period.
Compare this to Sulfaro. The Sulfaro Collection is designed and built to last customers a lifetime. It’s not uncommon for Sulfaro customers to return ten years after purchase to refresh and recover their Sulfaro loungesuite or sofa. Often this is to refresh and renew the fabrics or leathers to meet with current trends or their new interior design. With classic designs there is a timeless beauty to each piece of Sulfaro Furniture.
Sustainability at Sulfaro
For Sulfaro sustainability means much more than just another buzz word. For many years now the Sulfaro workshops and studios have utilised sustainable practices – Recycle, Re-use and Reduce.
Fabric and leather offcuts are utilised by local Primary Schools for craft exercises and learning. Local Art Centres also collect leather offcuts and fabric remnants to create items such as clothing, bags and accessories – beautifully handmade leather bags, purses and other individually crafted items. Foam offcuts are returned to the manufacturer, Dunlop, for recycling. Timber offcuts are collected for further use by tradesmen and craft users. Sawdust is recycled with gardeners who then compost it and use it as a mulch or soil additive. Naturally as a responsible company, Sulfaro uses a reputable Waste Removal company to recycle all plastics, cardboard, paper and, where possible, general waste.
Old clothing remains a huge problem both here in Australia and to those countries in Africa and Asia where we export thousands of tonnes of used clothing to be recycled. Only a small proportion of this clothing is ever recycled. The rest goes to landfill. Sulfaro utilise a product made by milled old clothing as an adhesive dampener between the springs and framing on all furniture pieces and is now co-operatively investigating the potential for producing this milled fabric produce (from old clothes) locally.
Used furniture is both bulky and difficult to dispose of. Some councils require separate hard rubbish pick up for old furniture and if accepted as ‘landfill’ the furniture is very difficult to dispose of.
Purchasing from Sulfaro ensures a sustainable proposition is maintained. Sulfaro Furniture is built to last. With a classic and traditional or modern contemporary the idea behind our furniture is that it remains stylish, comfortable and attractive for many years. It is one of the main reasons why traditional furniture making has remained popular over many years. Robotic manufacturing and production line factories simply cannot replicate the quality achieved through hand finishing and handcrafting of upholstered furniture.
