Remanufactured office furniture offers as-new quality at a lower price
Shocked by the price of new furniture, we discovered how you can halve your bill. The answer may surprise you.
New furniture is expensive and mostly unsustainable. This article explains the alternatives and how to choose between them.
You can now buy as-new remade office furniture for less than half the new recommended retail price, thanks to the circular economy.
Our aim is to provide beautiful quality office furniture at a lower cost, with less environmental impact and creating local jobs through remanufacturing. So we have developed techniques and partnerships enabling us to remake furniture economically.
Our journey has been a long one. 20 years ago Greg did his PhD on green buildings. Since then he has designed offices and worked helping companies with circular resource use, amongst other things.
We are based in London, serving the UK.
The business was created by Lavery/Pennell, consultants and innovators who are focussed on unlocking the value offered by more sustainable approaches to business (including remanufacturing).
Together we can create attractive offices that are more sustainable for less money
