Since the company began in 1989, founders Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams have been dedicated to running an eco-friendly business. The high-end furniture retailer implements a number of sustainable practices including using wood frames that are forest-friendly, eco-friendly fabrics and padding, and reducing waste by recycling scraps.

The National Forest Foundation, chartered by Congress in 1993, is a non-profit organization that engages Americans in community-based and national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the 193-million-acre National Forest System. They work with the U.S Forest Service to plant native trees in areas of greatest need and sustain “America’s Backyard.”
