Meet the Sustainable Team

At Sustainable Furniture we work closely as a small business to pull together exceptional service and high quality products. All of our teams are critical to the running of the business and every person is a vital cog in the workings of Sustainable Furniture.

Whilst this isn't everyone that works for Sustainable Furniture, these are some of the key players that you should come across should you speak to us on the phone or email. We are lucky enough to have such interlinking job roles we can all be covered when away with minimal effect to our service, the perk of a small business when you work so closely together.

All of our Sustainable Furniture team are dedicated and motivated individuals essential to the growing success of our family run company. Sustainable Furniture is proud to present our hard working team…
