What We Do

What We Do

We team up with industry, design, media and advocacy networks to advance our shared commitment to bold systems change within the furniture industry.

Our focus is on creating educational content and displays, developing information resources, and facilitating cross-sector collaboration.

C O N T E N T & D I S P L A Y S 

We present at trade shows and industry events, such as the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and Brooklyn Designs, and we have operated pop-up & multi-year showrooms in New York City. Our founder/CEO, for example, was featured as a panelist in ICFF's 2019 ‘Artisans of Influence’ session, and mebl was simultaneously selected to exhibit in the Luxe Interiors + Designs Lounge.

I N F O R M A T I O N 

We produce articles and visual materials to accompany educational programming. mebl’s digital presence includes our Instagram account (@mebltransformingfurniture, with 160k+ followers), a monthly blog and e-newsletter, and our website. Through these media, we feature a range of resources on sustainability, circularity and regenerative practices in furniture design, production, transport and distribution.

C O L L A B O R A T I O N 

We make connections between furniture- and sustainability-related enterprises and campaigns. We’re looking to “connect the dots,” building awareness across fields through idea exchange and programming partnerships. In doing so, our aim is to “cross-fertilize” adjacent networks similarly committed to championing circularity. One priority is the incorporation of social equity and human well-being as essential to the definition of sustainability.

We also highlight the work of dozens of talented furniture artisans working with reclaimed materials. While we no longer sell furniture, we continue to connect potential clients with them.

F U R N I T U R E 

We help interior designers, architects, offices, hotels, restaurants, homeowners and others to identify skilled furniture-makers aligned with the style, geography and budget of their projects. In this way, we facilitate purchases of high-quality, original furniture that is built of reclaimed materials and/or features other facets of circular design. We have, for example, made the connections for just-the-right custom furniture for the Marriott Bonvoy Hotel (Manhattan), an Upper East Side apartment (Manhattan); Williamsburg Hotel (Brooklyn), Nürish Cafe (Brooklyn), a Canadian rock star (California), an art gallery owner's vacation home (eastern Long Island), and an architect’s vacation home (Hudson Valley).
