Today we celebrate our great planet by spotlighting one of our favorite eco-friendly furniture brands, Eugene Stoltzfus. Architect, Eugene Stoltzfus, founded his architectural and furniture design company in 2006. Their team is dedicated to incorporating natural elements into their building projects and object design. Their cork seating and table pieces are framed with steel in a modern fashion and designed for indoor and outdoor use.
“The bark of the Quercus Suber has been used for thousands of years for use as stoppers for wine,” says Robert Northington, Director of Sales at Eugene Stoltzfus. “After the corks are removed the waste bark is ground up and compressed. This post production waste is what cork flooring, wallboard and our furniture is made from. Cork trees that are harvested will store more than 5 times the carbon than non-harvested cork trees do.”
Cork is a fabulous option for furniture because of its impermeability and elasticity. It’s a sustainable raw material with fatty cellular components that make it water resistant. If stained, you can simply and gently sand the blemish away.
Cork is mainly harvested from the cork oak forests of Southern Europe and North Africa, most specifically Portugal. Cork trees are harvested every 9 years and because cork comes from its outer bark, it can be removed without damaging or cutting down the tree.
To find out more about Eugene Stoltzfus’ cork furniture, click here or ask about them at your next showroom appointment at HeartCabinet®’s flagship location in Chelsea, Manhattan. We’ll also be incorporating some of their pieces in our ICFF booth May 19th-May 22nd at the Javits Convention Center. Stop by booth 321 to check it out.
This spring we’ve warmed things up by developing new designs with award-winning furniture company, Cliff Young Ltd. Our collaboration showcases two cutting-edge contemporary-classic installations: one that features mixed metal materials inspired by images of modern skyscrapers and the play of reflected light and the other influenced by contemporary floating cabinetry. We’ve created this furniture line to reflect timeless luxury and effortless elegance. The audience these pieces attracted at both the Architectural Digest Design Show and High Point Spring Market confirmed that this collaboration was a success.
"You have to see them embedded in the furniture to understand how they revolutionize the idea of what a fireplace can look and feel like. A beautiful self-contained fire with no smoke and no chimney either!" says Cliff Young's owner, Leslie Azzolina Zarra. "We think the collaboration is the perfect marriage of sophisticated simplicity with the warmth of home."
Cliff Young Ltd. was founded in 1968 by Leslie Azzolina Zarra’s father, Cliff Young, an Italian-American who went from passionate musician to charismatic furniture designer. To this day their business maintains strong family values and exercises meticulous attention to detail while creating new signature pieces and when reproducing their classic products.
We have been honored to develop this line of quality furniture with Cliff Young Ltd. and hope to create more pieces in the near future.

NEW Geometric Ventless Fireplaces by HearthCabinet® is recognized by the 2018 NYCxDESIGN Awards under the Architectural Products Category.
Breaking the longstanding tradition of box fireplaces, the new design works because there is no venting required. A traditional shape usually encourages air to move up a flue, but that’s no longer a restriction with custom ventless geometric options, including trapezoids, hexagons, triangles, parallelograms and more.
