FSC Certified Furniture Attracts Diverse Luxury Markets

Sublimehome is a company in Scottsdale, Arizona that designs and manufactures innovative custom-made home furnishings with a limited production of eco-chic furniture. Owner Paul Jeffrey offers a contemporary style with master craftsmanship. “Transcend the ordinary” is his motto.

What makes Sublimehome green? Well, the FSC certified hardwoods that Paul uses are rapidly renewable, including exotics. Other materials are plyboo, kirei board, bamboo and palm wood. His stains and sealers are water and soy based while adhesives are formaldehyde-free. Finishes are with low VOCs.

Paul says his secret to distinguishing contemporary luxury eco-furniture is by utilizing each customer’s unique personal characteristics to inspire the custom design process. He explains that in doing so, new aesthetics not previously known always develop.

Impressive skills are site-illustrated for handsome home basics, offices, doors and closets. Find decorative glass accents and hand-forged metal detailing.

Paul’s company satisfies both green markets: those that demand respect for Earth, and those that pamper their sensitive immune systems. Not only can individuals take advantage of his expertise and talents, but so can retailers and commercial businesses. Green interior decorators have a gem to work with here and can follow Paul’s standards for their conscious clienteles.


Eco-Friendly Interior Design: Sustainable Furniture For Your Modern Home

Say Hello to Cisco! Cisco Brothers Green Furniture

Written by Delia Montgomery

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design."

Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers.

From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases!

My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs.

I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here.

Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style.

In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
