We are dedicated to developing products certified by the FSC. You’ll be pleased to know that the wood used in a selection of our dining and home office collections is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council—the “gold standard” designation for wood harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally appropriate and economically viable. This season, FSC–certified furnishings include our solid mahogany Kipling barstools, buffet and hutch top; and solid walnut Adler desk and bookcase.
Crate and Barrel is the first North American home retailer to work directly with the Tropical Forest Trust (TFT).
Since 2005, we have worked closely with TFT to ensure that certain hardwoods selected for the production of our furniture are from plantations that are responsibly and socially managed for their long-term conservation. We have worked diligently and are pleased to announce that several of our collections are now TFT–supported through the entire chain of custody, from harvest to final production. TFT–supported furnishings throughout our collection include the plantation–grown teak Pacifica dining collection; and the plantation-grown teak Blake media cabinets, home office, occasional chairs and accent tables.
Natural beauty and craftsmanship in a range of exclusive designs.
Our Teagan bedroom collection is constructed of solid bamboo—one of the world’s most renewable and sustainable plants—and is handcrafted with centuries-old Chinese joinery using no nails or screws. The amber glow of our Basque dining and media collections derive their beauty from eco–friendly mango wood, at one time discarded after a short fruit–bearing life. In addition to Basque, we are also pleased to offer the natural beauty of mango wood throughout our collection, including Cabria dining, Dawson bedroom and Faulkner media.
We are also excited by our innovative designs featuring reclaimed and repurposed woods—from as far and wide as buildings no longer in use in China to telephone poles from rural Brazil—which add character and a global sense of history to our Paloma dining, Atwood bedroom, Hendrix and Phoenix home office, and Seguro media and accent table collections.
Living green every day in every room of the house.
Sustainable bamboo is naturally anti–microbial, making it ideal for use in the kitchen or bath. We offer an extensive range of items crafted in this renewable material, including our Bamboo Cutting Boards, Bamboo Dish Rack and Bamboo Bowls. Bamboo bath accessories include our Bamboo Soap Dish, Bamboo Waste Can, Bamboo Toothbrush Holder and more.
Renewable acacia wood lends the character of its active grain to beautiful Acacia Salad Bowls, Acacia Chip and Dip, and Acacia serving pieces. Our eco–friendly Windsor Wood Salt and Pepper Mills also set the table green in sustainable beech wood.
For casual entertaining, our Miguel and Granada drinkware patterns get their hefty, rustic character from recycled glass.
This is only the beginning. There are many, many more eco–friendly products throughout our collection.
