Buying wooden furniture is climate smart.
At Karl Andersson & Söner, we are delighted with the forest. Most of the material in our furniture is wood. Did you know that the Swedish forest is more alive than ever? Two thirds of Sweden's area is covered by forest. For each tree that is harvested, at least two new ones are planted. Trees that bind coal. The Swedish forest binds more than 140 million tonnes of carbon dioxide. This is twice as much as the total Swedish carbon dioxide emissions. And not only that. The carbon bound in the wood continues to be stored in the manufactured wood products. Therefore, it is wise to buy furniture made of wood.

The wooden sofa Facile is also manufactured for circular economy.
Our sofa Facile is also resource-efficient. The slender solid wood frame leaves minimal waste. The whole idea of lean production, which we use in the factory, is to eliminate waste. As living in IKEA land for several generations, we have developed this into an art. In addition, the cold foam on the sofa leaves small climate footprint.
All upholstery in our sofas and seating furniture is certified according to the textile label OEKO-TEX®. The padding is harmless even when the couch has lived its entire life in a generation or so. Then it is easy to sort and recycle the wood and upholstery individually. One life cycle is closed. A new one can begin. If you want to learn more about the textile label? Read more on below link.
Kamon Dinner is certified according to Möbelfakta. What does it mean?
