American-Made, Earth-Friendly Upholstery July 2015

Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams were crafting sustainable and comfortable furniture long before it was trendy. When they opened their eponymous company in 1989, they set out to honor both the importance of American-made products and the vital need for earth-friendly designs.

Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sources materials from only the best suppliers to create eco-conscious designs, which are made by artisans in the company’s modern factory in North Carolina. . . American craftsmanship at its best. The factory is a gold standard for sustainable practices, focusing on manufacturing techniques that are not harmful to the environment.

“To stay ahead of the eco-curve, we’re a member and active partner of the Sustainable Furnishings Council. Our eco-strategy is designed around product, processes, and people and infused into our workplace and factory,” said Mitchell Gold, a national board member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council.

The council is a nonprofit that promotes sustainable practices by raising awareness of the sustainability issue, assisting companies with adopting good practices, and providing a symbol of assurance for consumers.

While there, please consider making a $100 donation (or more!) to support the important work of the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
