Meet 3 Responsible, Under-the-Radar Furniture Brands
By Hannah McIntosh
Whether you identify with minimalist interiors or enjoy keeping a more elaborate home, one thing remains true: well-made, comfortable furniture will always be at the heart of your space. For this reason, we are highlighting a few of our most-loved furniture makers — ones that embody lived-in comfort, set the standards for sustainable craftsmanship, and whose innovative design and artisanal touches were consciously constructed to stand up against the homogenous aesthetic cultivated by big-box stores.
Why We Love Saba
From Italy comes Saba, a women-led furniture brand that’s well-suited for those feeling adventurous with color. Saba offers a stunning range of hues like bright yellows, deep purples, pale pinks, and shiny blues, many of which are enhanced by their velvet upholstery. Each piece is held in place with sturdy Velcro on the bottom of the frame, but easy enough to change its cover seasonally or whenever inspiration strikes.
The Saba Standout Factor
Sculptural silhouettes and quilted covers add a mix of elevated shape play and livable design to your home. Creativity and comfort meet in the hexagonal shapes of the New York Suite, the cozy modularity of the Pixel sectional, and spherical spirit of the Geo collection. Avant garde but not too precious to actually live with, Saba pieces tend to satisfy creative, elegant, and modern tastes.
Why We Love Cisco
Cisco pushes industry boundaries in its dedication to sustainable materials, helping to create a better world. In building each piece, Cisco uses responsibly sourced woods, natural latex, jute, hemp, and wool, as well as organic feathers and down. Not only are these materials naturally long-lasting, but they are also intrinsically flame retardant without the use of added chemicals.
The Cisco Standout Factor
Each piece from Cisco can be intricately customized to fit the specific needs of your space. Plus, Cisco has a wide assortment of certified natural fabrics, from linen to organic cotton, providing better choices for your lifestyle and your family.
Why We Love Cobble Hill
Cobble Hill makes approximately 25 frames in all the essential styles, including chairs, sleepers, sofas, loveseats, sectionals, and beds. The collection incorporates timeless modern elements such as deep seating, brass and steel legs, and wood and floating bases with customizable aspects like size, color, and fabric. With Cobble Hill, you can choose your seating size and style, and pick from 230 neutral or colorful fabrics in linen, cotton, blends, performance, velvets, and leathers.
The Cobble Hill Standout Factor
Cobble Hill imparts a relaxed air within your home, creating the perfect space for peaceful, rejuvenating moments. Each piece in the collection is an investment in long-lasting functionality and enduring style.
