Our mission is to transform your home with timeless and sustainable
rattan furniture that enables reforestation, atmospheric carbon reduction and the elimination of waste from fast furniture
When we moved into our home, I wanted to design a beautiful space that brought me joy to live in. But there was a problem. I couldn’t afford expensive designer-label furniture, and I didn’t want to buy cheap fast-furniture I knew we’d be replacing in a few years. Unlike designer furniture, there’s really no after-market for flat packs and chipboard furniture, so the vast majority just ends up rotting in landfill
Looking around our home it dawned on me that while it was reasonably easy to find smaller pieces that were sustainably made, bigger items like beds & tables were harder to find, often made of slow-growing hardwood.
Since houses can be built 25X faster than even a fast-growing pine tree can grow, this just didn’t seem sustainable to
In the natural world, trees are probably the best resource for capturing and locking up carbon from the atmosphere. Harvesting them to make tables, even from managed forests, seems at odds with the global necessity to battle climate change.
But what if we could rethink the way furniture is made? Big items like beds, tables and wardrobes can lock up a lot of carbon. Was it possible to turn furniture into an engine room for climate repair?
What are be doing about it?
We're flipping the switch on furniture production. Instead of less trees and more carbon, we want to build a model that leaves behind more trees and less carbon.

Rattan is made from the fast-growing rattan vine, so you’ll know no trees are cut in the production of your furniture
Our Big Goal:
By 2027 the production of Beach & Wood rattan furniture and furnishings will have enabled the replanting of 50,000 trees across endangered rainforest
Every item you order plants a tree. The bigger the item, the more trees we plant!
