Crafting Sustainable Comfort in a Fast-Furniture World

Feb 07, 2024 Sammi Chen

In a world where trends change as fast as a tweet, our homes are not exempt from the culture of disposability. The Wall Street Journal recently highlighted a concerning reality - couches, once cherished as decade-long investments, are succumbing to the fast fashion ethos, leaving consumers with furniture that barely outlasts a seasonal wardrobe.

The Fast Furniture Problem 

The article exposes the dark side of the furniture industry, mirroring the throwaway culture of fast fashion. Couches, once considered a haven for relaxation, are now produced with cheaper materials, driven by fleeting trends, and are discarded in landfills after just a few years. This trend not only disappoints consumers but also contributes to a staggering 12 million tons of furniture waste annually.
