Sustainability

We are committed to the sustainability and safety of the products we make.

BenchMark is available in 20 non-toxic stain and paint options developed in partnership with Sherwin-Williams, all of which are sealed with a non-toxic, Water-Based Lacquer.  Table tops get an extra step: a Catalyzed Lacquer topcoat which — while still being water-based and non-toxic — is extremely durable and resistant to spills, chemicals, heat, and the other realities of daily life.

Our solid Maple and Beech hardwoods are responsibly harvested from renewable Northern forests — woods you know from forests you can trust.  We do not use particle board or MDF in BenchMark, so there is no danger of formaldehyde or other hazardous emissions.

The foam in BenchMark upholstered seats — as well as the stain-resistant performance fabrics we offer — are free from dangerous flame-retardant chemicals.

We have families just like you, and we believe that we have a responsibility to help create a cleaner, less toxic environment both inside and outside the home.  While using sustainable solid wood like Maple and Beech and Water-Based, Non-Toxic paints and stains costs us a little more, we think it is a price worth paying.
