Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, September 1, 2008
Sealaska Natural Living will launch its tropical and plantation hardwood product collections at the Chicago Casual Market in booth 7-7054.
SNL, an outdoor furnishings manufacturer/importer that supplies high-quality sustainable products internationally, will introduce two collections, Natural Exotics and Natural Elements.
The Natural Elements furniture collection is manufactured in Brazil by locally owned and operated Tramontina using jatoba (Brazilian cherry) and cumaru tropical hardwoods, both 100% FSC certified. The collection includes a full range of products from conversation sets to occasional pieces and a line of mixed material products featuring French batyline mesh. Natural Elements’ designers hail from Italy and use chic European design elements. Through an exclusive agreement, SNL will be the only company to sell Tramontina’s hardwood outdoor furniture products in the United States.
“We are excited to be the exclusive marketer of Tramontina’s products in the U.S,” said Nicole Tillotson, SNL program leader. “The sleek design and natural beauty of their products as well as the company’s extraordinary environmental practices make Tramontia an ideal partner for a values-driven company such as Sealaska, and both companies look forward to a long, successful relationship”
The Natural Exotics collection is manufactured in Vietnam using two species of eucalyptus originating from FSC certified plantations in South Africa. Natural Exotics offers a range of products from full dining sets to compact loungers and is available through SNL in both the American and European markets. Through strategic and exclusive long-term partnerships, SNL can control and manage the raw material supply from log to finished product.
