Hotel Business and Design
"Earth's Friend Furniture, LLC is one of the handful of companies that is built around the idea of green, sustainable products for Hospitality".
"Hotel owners will continue to play more of a hands-on role, often collaborating with the design team when it comes to furniture choices for a project. 'The furniture is usually among the first decisions made in a new build or renovation project,' said Courtney. 'Ultimately, FF&E decisions are in the hands of the few individuals involved at this early stage of the project lifecycle.' "
"And when it comes to sustainability, Courtney commented it will not be a widespread trend until it becomes more accessible and affordable across all lodging segments. 'A hotel's approach to being green will vary greatly based on budgets and customer requirements. With premium prices on many green raw materials, the high-end hotels can absorb these costs while others cannot,' he said. 'In time, as green production increases, more earth friendly options will become available to a larger consumer base due to simple economies of scale.' "
