How has sustainability evolved within the company?

We are establishing our carbon footprint. On the production side we are switching to all water-base finishes. The wood is reclaimed and the veneers are becoming all certified sourced. Within our showroom, we use recycled paper and glass for displays. We also look at the lighting and try to make is as eco-friendly as possible. For Environment going forward it’s really about the innovative use of materials that most people can’t find or use. I spend most of my time going to places no one else visits. It could come from a village or meeting with an artist and seeing what is really going on and trying to bring that to the US.
