Our sustainability efforts begin at the start of the manufacturing process with the raw materials. We understand exactly where our materials come from by owning Viitala Forest, our family timber business. We mainly harvest Nordic Spruce and Birch for our sofa frames. The life cycle of one of our forests is roughly 80 years, and replanted trees take their place after harvesting.
Throughout our production process, we produce roughly four thousand pounds of wood waste daily. Instead of writing it off as waste, we convert the by-product into pellets. It’s then used in wood-fired ovens to heat all three of our factories, local schools, and a local town.
Once our design team has perfected our foam core shape, a template is sent to our foam supplier. Locally outsourcing our foam necessities ensures our foam shape is accurate 100% of the time and prevents foam waste from entering the factory.
We strive to partner with vendors and suppliers that support our sustainability efforts enabling us to reduce waste and re-purpose scrap materials for continued uses.
By building a high-quality product, we consume less total resources while keeping up with the demands of functional furniture. Every product is engineered with attention to detail, resulting in fewer claims. We require fewer resources for repairs, maintenance, service dispatches, and replacements. Our furniture’s durability and length of life empower us to reduce our overall impact on our environment.
With these methods, we minimize our carbon footprint, secure our longevity and deliver fine functional furniture to you that can endure the demands of your lifestyle.
Research & DesignThe Luonto development team includes experienced individuals who specialize in specific production areas. They comprise a group that complements and works together to understand the strengths and limitations of every aspect of production. Our R&D team excels at finding solutions and achieving our goals.
Frame Cutting & AssemblyUsing CNC technology to achieve pinpoint accuracy, frames are cut and assembled by hand with careful attention to detail. Water-based glue is used in every wooden joint to ensure the best bonding. We only use the highest-grade raw materials, so our framework is clean, strong, and built to last.
Foam GluingOur solid foam cores are wrapped with Dacron to create a comfortable layer between the upholstery and foam. The gluing is important as it prevents the material from separating, thus avoiding any future lumping.
SewingLuonto artisans are known for their keen attention to detail. These artisans machine sew every stitch of your sofa to perfection. Our sewing department makes it happen, whether surging hidden edges to prevent fraying or stitching details critical to the design.
Upholstery CuttingWe have found through experience that technology cannot always match the quality of our artisans as they possess the touch and feel that machines cannot replicate. All top-grain leathers and patterned upholsteries are cut by hand.
UpholsteringDuring the upholstering phase, the piece begins to look recognizable as the furniture in your household. Our team of upholsterers is tough and works to ensure that each piece is perfectly fitted.
Luonto Furniture began in 1964 when Finnish farmer, Pentti Viitala made the most courageous decision of his life: He sold his cows, bought a truck, and started upholstering sofas in the hen house of the family farm, selling them door to door. The foundation of courage and commitment on which Pentti Viitala conceived and built his furniture company is ever-present in Luonto today.Read More
