Anyone who has visited a Cisco Brothers showroom knows that you don’t have to sacrifice style for sustainable furniture. From unique shapes, surprising textures, and bold colors, Cisco Brothers furniture is designed to inspire while blending with how people live. Hear from founder Cisco Pinedo about his design philosophy (and check out some fabulous blue chairs!)
Not only is Cisco Brothers furniture about great style, but it is also designed with sustainability in mind. They use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood in their upholstery frames and wood furniture. Cisco offers a variety of cushion options that incorporate natural latex, down, feathers, or soy-based foams. And they use water based glues. Environmental impacts are an integral part of their design process. Take a look at some of their great products.
But they don’t stop at considering the environmental impacts of their products; they also have a significant focus on social responsibility. Cisco Brothers manufacturers their furniture in south central Los Angeles – providing jobs for local crafts people to learn new skills. They also support education and mentorship for Hispanic youth in southern California through an organization called meta – Making Education the Answer.
Cisco Brothers products are sold through several retail outlets. In fact, you can catch a glimpse of their retail showrooms through videos on their website. Or maybe you’ve seen their products featured in popular magazines. They are still a family run business as Cisco shares below –
I think Cisco Brothers upholstery comes with a great story…and even better style. What do you think?
