SVN Member David Berruto is opening a new store in Atlanta’s trendy Westside Provisions District. Environment, also located in New York, Los Angeles, and Costa Mesa, considers environmental stewardship as their responsibility and privilege. Their unique furniture is made with reclaimed and sustainably harvested wood, as well as recycled or repurposed textiles. Most of their raw matieral is sourced from derelict houses and abandoned buildings in Parana, Brazil that are made from 100 year old Peroba Rosa wood. Any other wood is sustainably harvested or SFI certified.

In the past year they have made important progress in identifying and addressing environmental impacts. They passed stringent entry requirements to become a partner member of the TropicalForest Trust, a leading global organization working to promote sustainable forestry at the local level.

A favorite of eco-celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon, Environment’s contemporary craftsmanship coupled with their attention to the provenance of their raw materials differentiates them from other furniture makers. To see their collections and for more information visit www.environmentfurniture.com.
