Benchmark furniture

Description

Benchmark understands sustainability and wellness very well.

The company was one of the first furniture makers in the UK to have chain of custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).

They are ISO14001 certified, and are extremely proud to have been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Sustainable Development category twice.

 

To challenge the way upholstery is usually made, Benchmark has chosen not to use plastic foam.

Instead, they have developed upholstery in collaboration with the Naturalmat Company, which uses natural, sustainable and biodegradable materials – coir, latex and sheep’s wool.

This is better for our health as well as overcoming the significant environmental concerns surrounding the disposal of plastic foam in landfill. Check out their furniture here.
