Franklin+Emily Furniture

 

  

Frames

Our Baltic Birch frames are constructed of 13 layer plywood that is certified by the California Air Resources Board, ensuring trees were responsibly grown and harvested and that the bonding is free of toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde. 

Our Walnut and Ash hardwood frames are built from responsibly sourced wood from small local mills in upstate New York.

All our frames are assembled and finished by hand.

 

Finishes

Our finishes are derived from natural vegetable waxes and oils, are 100% solvent free, contain zero VOC’s and are safe for children and animals.

Resistant to dirt, liquid spills and abrasion, the finish is smooth and will not crack, flake, peel or bubble.

In comparison to conventional finishes, the use of plant ingredients creates a more evenly colored and more harmonious appearance. 

 

Fabrics

Our cushion covers are made with durable ultra-microfiber called UltraSuede® which is made with partially plant based materials.

It is beautiful, luxuriously and soft and ready for kids + life.

All covers are easily spot cleanable, removable and machine washable.

 

Leather

We use 8-ounce vegetable tanned leather from the USA.

Vegetable tanning is a natural, eco-friendly process that produces superior leathers that are full of character.

This leather ages beautifully with use, and is cleaned simply with a damp cloth. 

 

Shipping Materials

Our packaging is made from 100% recycled material and we hope you’ll give it one more use. 

We think the best part is inside the box, but some of our #acorncrew members would beg to differ. If you build, play or create a masterpiece with your box, take a picture and post it, tagged with #almostfullsize #playoutsidethebox.
