The main reason is their furniture can work with many different styles whether I am designing a modern city loft or a Cape Cod beach house I know I will always find something in their store! Another reason I like working with them is because 90%, let's say that again 90% of their casegoods are made in the U.S. and a high percentage of that made in New England. In this day of supporting our community and shopping locally this makes me feel good!
Their focus on being green is evident in the eco-friendly upholstery lines they choose to sell. For their eco-living upholstery, the woods used in the manufacturing come from sustainable harvested forests. The frames are made of engineered wood and soy based resins to reduce the use of old growth timber. The soy based cushions are made of BIOH™ Polyols, to reduce the amount of petroleum based chemicals used in the making of polyurethane foam, a commonly used product in furniture cushions.
Isn't this Catalina Bed fantastic? It is just one of the many beautiful beds Circle carries!
