Gallery: EKLA Home’s New Sustainable Sofas Unveiled

 

A confessed dumpster diver always on the look-out for abandoned treasures and grand-daughter to both a furniture designer and a scrap metal recycler, Emily Kroll was destined to launch EKLA Home. With a fresh new brand of sustainable sofas, Kroll’s green-minded design endeavor takes its eco-mandate very seriously. If you didn’t catch the Los Angeles-based designer’s off-Javits East Coast debut at Design Lush during ICFF, here’s a quick and delicious recap.

Our faves include the modular Box Sectional that can be re-arranged at your whim; the elegant and surprisingly comfortable Milano that ensconces you in your own private little world with its regal height; and the brightly patterned Chesterfield, a modern and decidedly feminine riff on an old world classic. Each sofa is made from FSC-certified alder wood and eco-fabrics such as tencel. Pure rubber with no chemical additives is used for the cushions and no chemical flame-retardants are applied. Beyond the products themselves, EKLA’a Home workshop operates on natural light as much as possible and $15 per sale is contributed to the Sierra Gorda Biosphere project and $15 per sale is contributed to the California State Parks. Rumor has it that an artisan’s bedding collection might be coming soon so keep an eye out for more fresh design ideas from EKLA Home!

    I live in LA and I am trying to find a comfortable couch for my kids that is not made with harmful flame retardant material. I have seen some beautiful offerings , but oh soo expensive. Any suggestions? I am a kid from the 70′s where saving a buck meant everything and now being green dshould not mean that I have to give up the green stuff to boot.
