Shared space in C&D Building with Urbia Imports reflects synergy rooted in sustainability
CONOVER, N.C.– BKIND3, a manufacturer of eco-friendly upholstery, has moved its High Point showroom to the Commerce & Design (C& D) Building (Spaces 5E and 5J), where it is exhibiting together with Urbia Imports, which specializes in furniture crafted from reclaimed and re-purposed wood, as well as select plantation-grown resources.
BKIND3 founder and upholstery designer Carl Gustafson said the C&D Building is a perfect showcase for his company and Urbia Imports, since the complex attracts retailers and designers seeking original designs and sustainable products for their customers and clients.
“With BKIND3’s focus on creating eco-friendly upholstery built by North Carolina craftsmen and the wonderful wood products that Urbia Imports produces, our shared showroom is a showcase for embracing a sustainable philosophy,” Gustafson said. “The shared showroom also puts a spotlight on designs that fit together in a natural way because of the eco-friendly approach of each of our companies.”
From the beginning, the focus of BKIND3 has been simple; to produce well-styled, affordable seating and enable customers to make a conscious choice that is eco friendly, green and sustainable—and that also brings jobs back to North Carolina.
BKIND3 has reviewed every aspect of its business to be in compliance with best practices and social responsibility. Its frames are PlyFrame harvested in US SFI certified forests. Seating is made in part with soy-based BiOH polyols that leave a smaller environmental footprint than the petroleum materials they replace. Those efforts earned BKIND3 membership in the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
