The Mindfully Made Wangari Sofa

At Sage Interiors, we are committed to sourcing eco-friendly furniture that bring warmth, joy, and a guilt-free conscience to your home. Our designs are crafted with sophisticated, mindfully-made materials that are either FSC™-certified or sustainably-sourced to ensure our signature collections always meet the highest eco-craftsmanship standards.

We are excited to add the Wangari Sofa to our sustainable furniture collection here at TREE. As a tribute to Wangari Maatai, we named this timeless sofa Wangari. Wangari was an environmental activist, politician, the founder of the Green Belt Movement, and the first African American to receive a Nobel Prize. Embedded in eco-craftsmanship, the sofa honors her and her honest work.

Historically, the textile industry has contributed significantly to water waste and freshwater pollution. Currently, production is shifting to better align with consumer awareness, and we're eager to contribute to that. Wangari has been built with sustainable values in mind. Find out more below.

"When we plants trees, we plant the seeds of peace and hope."

Water bottles diverted from landfills were repurposed to produce recycled yarn for the Wangari Sofa, which is then woven into its luxurious fabrics.

Wangari's Sustainable Process:

  • Constructed with FSC-certified woods
    Post-consumer bottles are collected, washed, chopped, melted into chips, then made into yarn

  • The back, seat, and arms are constructed with PET bottle fibers

  • Produced in a North America-based factory that generates more energy via solar power than the factory utilizes

This eco-chic, sophisticated sofa is available for you to experience in our heritage gallery today. The billowy cushioning and exaggerated proportions bring fresh European vibes to everyday lounging, with overfilled arms that provide structure and softness. We are thrilled to add an exceptional piece like this to our Sage collection of eco-chic furniture made from the heart.
