It’s no secret that most furniture ends up in landfills. That’s why we’re proud to provide environmentally-friendly options focused on waste prevention through our Removable and Replaceable furnishings.
Minimize wear and tear on your furnishings.
In fast-moving industries like student housing and hospitality, furniture upholstery can take a beating. Sofas, loveseats, chairs, sectionals… These common commercial furnishings come face to face with a lot of traffic, which can lead to significant wear and tear.
If this is a challenge you’ve faced before, we have great news: you don’t have to buy new every time your furnishings begin to fade. There are multiple benefits to choosing Removable & Replaceable upholstery (or as we say, “R&R” for your furniture) instead of buying new every time…
Put the sofa in the landfill or change the upholstery?
Both our customers and the planet benefit from Removable & Replaceable upholstery.
While recent EPA studies show that a portion of furniture is combusted for energy every year, the hard truth is the majority ends up in landfills. In 2018 alone, nearly 81% of this product sector was reportedly sent to landfills—translating to over 9.6 million tons of furnishings landfilled that year alone!
To us, Smarter Furnishings means engineering furniture that stays in rooms and out of landfills. Our upholstery pieces utilize Removable & Replaceable fabrics to help lower product waste, protect our planet, and reduce your expenses. This leads us to our next benefit…
Give your budget a little R&R.
In addition to the environmental impact, choosing Removable and Replaceable upholstery can be an extremely cost-efficient way to maintain and update your furnishings. Making the simple switch to upholstery furnishings that utilize R&R materials can be an easy way to reduce your costs associated with product waste and improve your bottom line long-term.
By considering this cost factor next time you’re in the market for commercial furnishings, you can extend the life of every product purchased, while also easily transforming the furniture and the overall look of your facility when that time comes.
Get what you want!
At Smarter Furnishings, we exist to do more than provide the furnishings you need. Our team will go above and beyond to ensure you get the furnishings you want.
Cushion covers, complete cushions, and arm & body covers are available with R&R upholstery to help extend the life of your furnishings, reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, and give you the look you want for less.
