FURNITURE NEWS #406

Whatever your feelings about climate change, it’s getting harder to ignore the signs of Al Gore’s ‘inconvenient truth’. This month, we’re again talking sustainability, and offering a soapbox to the people, products and processes making our sector greener.

Hypnos’ group MD David Baldry talks us through his latest successes, and we look into the role of FSC certification in our sector.

Meanwhile, Richard Naylor (also Hypnos) kicks off a new series of columns on sustainability, Angela Moran chronicles Silentnight’s journey to net zero, Simba shares its latest innovations and Elaine Butler (The Circular Design Institute) reports on circular manufacturing in the upholstery sector.

Also this month, we explore Leekes’ latest refurb and look back at May’s Spring Furniture & Bed Show, Reborn’s Adam Ashborn takes our Q&A hotseat, and new BFM MD Phil Spademan outlines the association’s upcoming components show.
