Andreas Schwall, founder of www.EcoFurniture.ca in Victoria, BC has
been designing and building furniture for over 20 years. He learned
his trade in Germany, where he trained for 3 years using hand tools
alone. Today Andreas has gone back to the basics with a line of
simple, handmade, solid-wood, built-to-last functional furniture that
has a minimal impact on the planet. Conventional mass-produced
furniture is built with wood shipped around the globe and processed
abroad, burning an immense amount of fossil fuel. Plywood and
finished products are then shipped back to North America, where they
still need further transportation. Once this "cheap" furniture comes
into our homes, it immediately starts releasing gasses, like cancer-
causing formaldehyde from glues and varnishes, that will continue to
make us sick for years to come! Eco Furniture combines simplicity and
function to bring you furniture that is as safe as it is beautiful,
using local, fast growing softwoods and natural, food-safe, non-toxic
finishes. Old world craftsmanship and wisdom is used to create pieces
that will last as long as you need them to, but will return
effortlessly to the earth when required of them.
