Global Surroundings introduces eco-friendly commercial furniture
May 29, 2008,
“We felt the HD Expo was the perfect venue to introduce this unique collection,” said Jay Jackson, president of Global Surroundings. “Contract and commercial applications today are demanding the products going into the projects be eco-friendly and sustainable, and this new line delivers. Consumers today are conscious of the products they utilize at high-end resorts, hotels and restaurants. The reception on The Palisades Collection was overwhelming at the HD Show. This market is clearly asking for sustainable furnishings with cutting edge design.”
Global Surroundings partnered with Viro Fiber to construct the woven resin line.
“Viro Fibers are specifically designed and engineered for outdoors using non-toxic, 100% recyclable materials,” said Johan Yang, vice president of Viro Fiber. “Incorporating reclaimed teak into their designs with the Viro continues the theme of sustainable furniture design.”
