Leaders in Recycling

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015 : Upholstery Blog

Welcome to Trevor Brown Upholstery’s inaugural blog post!

So glad you could be here!  The aim of this blog is to entertain, educate, provide some insights into the upholstery trade and industry and show off some of our amazing work.

For those that don’t know, the industry of upholstery has always been a friend of the environment; reducing consumer waste by transforming hand me downs into rejuvenated pieces tailored to suit your individual style and space.

That makes us a business built on promoting sustainability while providing you with fabulous new pieces for generations to enjoy!  We even carry a selection of eco-friendly “green” fabrics to complete your project.

Reupholstering furniture….

  • Prevents landfill waste: reengineering and reupholstering furniture prevents hundreds of valuable, strong and well made pieces from being sent to the landfills
  • Reduces carbon impact: even “sustainable furniture” carries a considerable carbon footprint when it has to be manufactured, packaged, stored and shipped to your location. Across all industries, recycling and reusing existing goods requires less energy than the creation of new items from virgin materials
  • Saves trees: extend the life of those older, well built, sturdy pieces of solid wood furniture as opposed to a new piece constructed of composite board, and save those trees!

So before you decide to purchase new furniture, see if your existing pieces can be refurbished.  Not only is it good for the environment but you’ll get exactly what you want….
