Arhaus, a furnishings company, was founded in 1986 with commitments to design, craftsmanship, and responsibility. Today, they are also committed to searching out eco-friendly materials and methods. Arhaus has always focused on artisan crafted pieces, created by furniture makers from across the world whom Arhaus maintains "face-to-face" relationships with in order to assure quality and fair labor practices.
Their eco-initiatives include plantation grown wood, reclaimed materials, end of life materials such as mango wood from trees that are no longer producing, recycled materials such as copper and glass, and a refusal to use any rain forest woods.
The company offers a wide variety of furnishings including beds, tables, storage, and upholstered pieces in many styles ranging from traditional to contemporary. I found that you have to search their website, reading about each piece, to find the ones that are eco-friendly. There are many pieces made from mahogany, which is not known to be eco-friendly, as well as other woods that I thought were questionable. It would be beneficial if the website had an eco-friendly product section.
The company also offers a selection of accessories, including many recycled glass vases. The photos included in this article show a table from the Captiva collection which is made of Mango wood (reddish colored console table), a coffee table from the Pearson collection made of reclaimed Elm wood and a circular dining table from the Trieste collection which has a recycled copper top which has been hand hammered 3,500 times in order to produce unique coloring and texture. Pricing seems fairly reasonable. The Captiva table is normally $800, but is on sale for $500. The Pearson table is on sale for $500 and the Trieste copper table is on sale for $1700, normally $3600. Each style is available in a variety of sizes and you may purchase their pieces on Arhaus’s website.
