Creating Sustainable Workspaces: Is a blended furniture solution the answer?

Sustainability and the workplace are increasingly inseparable terms these days, with businesses exploring effective ways to furnish their workspaces while maintaining environmental responsibility. One strategy that’s gaining popularity: the blend of new and recycled furniture in the workplace. This sustainable approach is a great way for businesses to contribute to the circular economy, reducing their carbon footprint, decreasing waste, and minimising the demand for new raw materials.

We can toss out the misconception that recycled furniture equals a compromise on office design. With diverse styles, materials, and finishes available, recycled pieces (including those we re-upholster), can seamlessly integrate into modern office aesthetics. Additionally, embracing a blend of new and recycled furniture introduces a mix-and-match approach that enhances flexibility, meaning businesses can change their workspaces without the need for a complete overhaul.

Client Spotlight

Boralex, a leader in renewable energy, put sustainability at the core of furnishing their new flagship office in Scotland. With 70% recycled furniture, including a reupholstered sofa, they not only achieved a fresh and dynamic environment but also made substantial steps in reducing their environmental impact. This contributed to the cohesive aesthetic of their space but also exemplifies the versatility and value that recycled and re-engineered furniture bring to forward-thinking businesses like Boralex. Similarly, ESG technology company Utopi opted for a blend of new and recycled furniture to furnish their expansion. The result was a visually appealing office through a tangible commitment to sustainability that resonated with both employees and clients.

A Sustainable Future Awaits

The blend of new and recycled furniture represents a progressive step toward sustainable, efficient, and visually appealing workspaces. As businesses increasingly prioritise environmental responsibility, this strategy for sourcing furniture provides a practical and impactful solution.
