Oakland Furnishings combats the UK’s furniture waste issue

UK-based furniture company Oakland Furnishings is doing its part to combat the country's growing furniture waste problem.

Offering a variety of handcrafted sofas, recliners, chaise lounges and sofabeds, Oakland Furnishings is dedicated to providing quality pieces that stand the test of time, preventing unnecessary waste caused by the rising fast-furniture industry.

Unlike furniture companies that outsource their production, Oakland Furnishings handcrafts all of its furniture pieces in-house in the UK, and ensures that every piece is made with the highest-quality materials and attention to detail, resulting in furniture that is both attractive and built to last.

The company's commitment to quality craftsmanship and sustainable furniture pieces is more important than ever before. According to recent reports, over 22 million furniture pieces are disposed of in the UK each year, equating to around 670,000t – and with only 17% of discarded furniture being properly recycled, much of this is sent to landfill.

Oakland Furnishings is doing its part to combat this problem by creating furniture that is designed to stand the test of time, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

"We believe that furniture should be an investment that will last for years to come, not just a poor-quality, disposable item that will end up kerbside in only a few months’ time," says Alex, manager at Oakland Furnishings. "That's why we take pride in producing every piece of furniture in-house, using only the best materials and craftsmanship. We want our customers to feel confident that they are making the right choice when they choose Oakland Furnishings."

Oakland Furnishings offers a wide range of quality furniture options, from sofas and armchairs to footstools and accessories. It says its commitment to sustainability and quality craftsmanship is evident in every piece, making it an attractive option for anyone looking for high-quality, long-lasting furniture.

"If you're in the market for a new sofa and want to make the best choice, consider Oakland Furnishings," adds Alex. "With our commitment to quality craftsmanship, and furniture pieces that are built to last, you can feel good about your purchase."
