Parker Knoll’s evolving eco emphasis

Niamh Logan, Marketing Assistant at upholstered furniture manufacturer Parker Knoll, talks about their latest collection and how it has an evolved sustainable focus. 

In an age where environmental consciousness and sustainability have taken center stage, the furniture industry is undergoing a remarkable transformation. As consumers become increasingly aware of the ecological impact of their choices, the demand for sustainable and eco-friendly furniture options has surged. In response to this global shift, Parker Knoll has introduced their ‘evolve’ collection, a testament to their commitment to environmental stewardship and innovation in design.

“evolve encapsulates the essence of sustainability, blending elegant aesthetics with eco-conscious practices,” Niamh said. “It stands as a testament to our belief that exquisite design need not come at the cost of the planet. This collection comprises three stunning sofas and chairs: Hazel, Rowan, and Juniper. Each piece not only showcases exquisite craftsmanship but also tells a story of sustainability and ethical sourcing.”

The evolve collection is crafted from recycled materials and speaks volumes about Parker Knoll’s dedication to repurposing resources and reducing waste. “It’s a symbol of our commitment to preserving forests and minimizing our carbon footprint,” Niamh continued.

“Redefining comfort whilst still emphasising sustainability is very important to us. Every deep, comfortable sofa cushion in our evolve collection is foam-free and padded with Quallofil Blue, an independently verified and fully traceable planet-friendly polyester, made with 50% recycled ocean plastics.

“In fact, every sofa repurposes around 170 bottles. But Quallofill Blue does more than use old bottles, they have a mission to also help those in poverty build a better future.”

The collection also demonstrates how sustainability can be integrated into contemporary living. Manufactured from sustainably sourced, renewable materials, evolve speaks to the longevity of eco-friendly design and encourages responsible consumption, avoiding the pitfalls of disposable furniture.

“In a world where every purchase holds the power to make a difference, our ‘evolve’ collection invites you to make a statement — a statement for sustainable living without compromising on style,” Niamh said. “Embrace the future of furniture today with Hazel, Rowan, and Juniper.”
