DESIGNING WITH SUSTAINABILITY IN MIND: FICARI'S COMMITMENT TO ECO-CONSCIOUS FURNITURE
As we have all become more mindful of our planet and the impact of industrial production, eco-conscious furniture has never been more important than now.
To be sustainable, furniture should be manufactured to meet the needs of the present in the most respectful conditions both for the environment and for people.
A variety of criteria play a role including responsible sourcing of material, employing energy-efficient processes, creating pieces with a long lifetime, and supporting the well-being of workers.
Driven by the realities of climate change and environmental stress, sustainability at Ficari plays a significant role—which is reflected in our ethical business practices, the handmade products we offer, and our processes to mitigate the environmental impact of production.
Why design with sustainability in mind?
The increased demand for furniture with a better environmental life-cycle has seen high-concept furniture companies sprouting into action to put in place practices that aim to reduce carbon footprint.
As we continue to grapple with environmental challenges, it is longer about focusing solely on showcasing the perfect blend of beauty and functionality.
It’s about taking into consideration the impact of each step; from raw material through to design and the product’s end of life. When designing furniture, these are considerations we keep in mind:
- Designing with high-quality materials
As a means to reduce carbon footprint and contribute to a greener future, the use of sustainable materials has become a significant focus in the furniture industry.
Ficari modern furniture is built using the finest selection of sustainably sourced materials. Our collection of high-quality upholsteries—from vintage boucles to soft luxurious leathers—ensures durable and long-lasting construction.
Incorporating these materials into our designs is a crucial step towards reducing environmental impact and catering to the evolving preferences of a more eco-conscious market.
- Innovation in manufacturing practices
In addition to sourcing honest and high-quality materials, we put great care into how our furniture pieces come to be.
Employing production methods and conditions that cause as little negative impact on the planet has been a priority for many years. Our efficient, sustainable-led innovations consider how something is manufactured, packaged, used, and ultimately discarded.
- Crafting timeless, long-lasting pieces
While we often pay close attention to responsible sourcing and the conditions in which the product is made, it’s also crucial to shift our focus toward the entire lifespan of the product.
One of the cornerstones of designing with sustainability in mind is embracing timelessness instead of short-lived trends. The reality is, furniture of inferior quality and style could still be discarded before the end of its lifecycle.
For this reason, the process of designing Ficari modern furniture takes a wholistic approach. We consider not just the materials used, but putting great care into crafting pieces that are exceptionally durable, timeless in their aesthetic, and suited for virtually any interior setting.
The furniture you choose should provide a style versatility that easily adapts to changes that may come in future: upsizing, downsizing, rightsizing, or evolving aesthetic preferences.
While Ficari has varied furniture offerings, the end result is the same: modern pieces that are stylish, functional, environmentally friendly, and enhance flexible living.
