Our Values

We believe our planet is precious, so we don't want you to buy things again and again and again. We want you to buy it once and buy it right - and then we want it to last you a life time.

We pride ourselves on working with manufacturers who shares these values.

We are proud to be Anti-Consumerism.

Consumerism is a social and economic order that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts

We take huge pride in working almost exclusively with companies whose products are designed to last decades. Many of the chairs we sold back in 1987 are still in use, and we have helped to repair many of the small number that needed it over the last 35 years.

Throughout the company we focus on reducing our impact on the world and the impact of the products we sell:

  • Recyclable packaging (we stopped using plastic bags nearly 15 years ago!)
  • Recycling at all locations
  • Carefully selected eco-manufacturers (see more detail below)
  • No single-use products of any kind
  • Our furniture and many of our other products are built to last decades not simply a few years. 
  • Green rated delivery companies
  • Eco fabrics on all our major ranges (our favourite is Dinamica)
  • Low to no air miles (97% of our products are made in Europe)
  • Many of our own brand items are UK-manufactured
  • We use LED lighting throughout our stores
  • All locations are using renewable energy
  • We minimise waste by keeping and re-using spare parts, gifting items to charity or re-purposing them

Top Eco Items:

These are the most environmentally friendly, beautiful chairs we have ever found - and they are totally wonderful for your body too. 

 

Unusual & a team favourite

One of the most unusual office chairs out there - this is an all time favourite for many of our team. In our own offices and showrooms this is the most commonly chosen chair.

It pairs beautifully with sit to stand desking (something all our staff have and we strongly recommend) and can help increase energy, boost productivity and reduce back pain.

This is a best seller for us so we hold many wonderful colours in stock for next day delivery. We recommend a really hard wearing fabric on this like Capture, Comfort+ or Leather as this is a chair you will have for many years. Its looks wonderful in bold colours because of its unusual silhouette

HAG Capisco

HAG Capisco Puls - In Stock!

The Hag Capisco Puls, 8010 and 8020 models are among the most unusual ergonomic office chairs out there. This is an all-time favourite for many of our team.
In our own offices and showrooms, this (or its fully upholstered sibling the Capisco 8106) is the most commonly chosen chair.

They pair beautifully with sit-to-stand desking (something all our staff have and we strongly recommend) and can help increase energy, boost productivity and reduce back pain.

Movement & Ergonomics

So good for creating forwards tilt - If you aren't familiar with the huge benefits of forwards tilt and what it can do for your activity levels / spinal health, give us a call to chat or head over to our blog.

  • The Sofi Mesh combines the comfort of an ergonomic mesh backrest with the firm pelvis support of a foam seat - firm seats are essential for maintaining healthy posture throughout a working day. 
  • Made with a free-flowing centre pivot tilt mechanism the Sofi Mesh allows easy low-level movement throughout your working day to reduce fatigue, increase muscle fitness, boost productivity - and it's beautiful too.

A hybrid of two incredible chairs

There is nothing else quite like it... The HAG Creed is based on two of our most loved originals: the H04 and H05.

These two chairs were both so wonderful we could never really choose which we liked best. Now we don't have to:
The HAG Creed is a beautiful hybrid of the two.
