BERMEX™ Furniture Made in Harmony with the Environment

No Comments

As we celebrate Earth Month in April, the team here at Custom Home Interiors wants to sing the praises of some of our favourite suppliers, who are leading the way in sustainable development and environmental protection, in addition to designing products that we love.

BERMEX™ is one of the most important manufacturer of solid wood chairs, tables and bar stools in North America with more than 143 different finishes and colours and more than 190 fabrics and leathers. With five styles of furniture, from contemporary, transitional and traditional to American and French Country, the design options are endless ensuring the furniture we select for our projects has its own distinct look and personality.

Being a wood furniture manufacturer you can understand the crucial role of trees in BERMEX™ business. If the supply should shrink or disappear, their business would be in jeopardy. In order to minimize the chances of this happening, they have championed many initiatives to preserve the environment.

BERMEX™ exclusively uses solid North American birch in the manufacturing of their high-quality furniture. Only the best pieces of this wood−known for its exquisite beauty−are used. To sustain this process and ensure the renewal of this precious resource, BERMEX™ plants one new tree for every tree used in the manufacture of their product.

Because they control everything from the raw wood to the finishing of the furniture in their five factories, every possible effort is made so the wood that is cut away during production of BERMEX™ furniture is used for creating marketing tools or other items.

Residues coming from various products used by the finishing department are 100% recycled by CHEMREC; and shipping processes are structured to minimize carbonic gas emissions as well as fuel consumption.

When Custom Home Interiors chooses BERMEX™, we know that we are choosing products that offer an optimum life span while contributing to protecting our environment for future generations. And, we love that BERMEX™ is a Canadian company, based out of Maskinongé, Québec.

EGLO is one of the global leaders in decorative lighting solutions for residential purposes. They are a trendsetter on the mass market with numerous patents and new products every year. We choose many of their LED lighting products for our projects because in addition to being beautifully designed, they save on energy and money and avoid using hazardous substances like mercury.

Sustainable development and environmental protection are central to the vision and values of EGLO. Their products are made using only recyclable and environmentally friendly materials and as little packaging as possible; and used packaging is disposed of properly, and according to regulations.

The company headquarters are located in Pill, Austria. It is heated by an environmentally-friendly pellet heating system and lit mainly by LED lighting which saves additional energy. They have updated the insulation of all older buildings to the state of the art, and in the new buildings, they pay special attention to the energy balance. A decentralized warehousing system means that transportation distances are as short possible to help reduce their environmental footprint even further.

By designing products with LED technology and championing environmental protection, EGLO is encouraging customers all over the world to reduce their environmental impact as well. LED light bulbs are energy efficient and long lasting, which means customers save on energy and money, while also preserving valuable resources and eliminating the use of hazardous substances like mercury.
