If you are passionate about the environment, then making careful choices about the companies you buy from may well be a priority. This is certainly the case for furniture as not every manufacturer is ethical about sourcing materials or the processes it follows. Raft furniture is a furniture making company with a difference. The brand is committed to using upcycled materials and reducing the impact of manufacturing on the world around us in every way. From natural fabrics to ethical farming and reclaimed timber, Raft furniture’s ethos is all about making beautiful products in an environmentally conscious way. Here at Vinterior we love Raft’s approach to promoting recycled, vintage and antique items and are delighted to include Raft furniture in our catalogue.

A bit about Raft furniture

Raft is a company committed to quietly changing the world of interior decor, one sofa at a time with their dedication to only using ethical materials. You may not have heard of them before, but they’re the leading manufacturer in the world of reclaimed teak!

All of the teak they use in their designs – including sofas, chairs and tables – has been reclaimed. This means it was previously used for another purpose, such as housing or shipping. Every time you buy a piece of Raft’s furniture, you can rest assured that a fresh tree wasn’t cut down in the process and a more sustainable route was taken.

As well as teak, Raft uses fabrics and leather, and there are a variety of options available to customers here too. Leather is obtained from farmers who follow ethical practices and it’s made from cold climate hide which is thicker and more durable. This means that your furniture will last for longer, once again reducing the demand on the planet’s resources. When it comes to tanning and dying, only organic products and eco-friendly tanneries are used. Other options include natural fabrics such as unbleached linen, cotton and wool which is 50% recycled.

Using Raft furniture in your home

If all of the above sounds good to you, perhaps you might be wondering how you could utilise Raft urniture in your home. One of the beautiful things about reclaimed teak is that it won’t be flawless; along its journey it will have acquired marks and scars. Although the final items will be superbly finished, these tiny imperfections will still be visible. This style of design, together with the solid wooden construction of their furniture, means that Raft is particularly suited to a shabby chic or farmhouse decor. Whether you use it in the bedroom, the dining room or the living room, you’ll find high-quality items which are nothing short of magnificent. The individual characteristics of each piece will reflect a rich history and a different life for every panel of wood.

Raft is particularly well-known for making sofas, chairs and tables but the brand offers a full range of furniture for every room in the house. There are beds, wardrobes, chests of drawers, shelving, cabinets, benches and garden furniture too.
