Sitting with Upholstery Leader, LEE Industries

Journal | March 8, 2019

One of our all-time favourite furniture manufacturers, LEE Industries, is about to celebrate their 50th anniversary, and we felt it was fitting to share why we admire and stand behind this company as a vendor. Their story is one of steady growth and care for the environment, craftsmanship, and a dedication to the well-being of their employees. They inspire us to keep doing what we do and to continually grow our leadership opportunities.

Earth-Friendly 

LEE has partnered with some of the world’s leading innovators in earth-friendly solutions to create naturalLEE. Through this they have:

  • Introduced an option in upholstery that features soy-based cushions 
  • Began using fibres made from recycled plastic
  • Began using organic fabrics for all upholstery
  • Began using wood panels certified by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative)
  • Initiated waste reduction and recycling programs in all parts of the manufacturing process

Customizable 

With the LEE Custom Fit Studio, the possibilities for a new, custom furniture piece are endless! Beyond fabric selections, you can personalize most styles to fulfill any project or specification.

  • Change width, depth or height
  • Change seat height
  • Change leg style
  • Change cushion configuration
  • Omit skirt
  • Change pillow size

When selecting a piece of quality furniture, consider:

  • Who is going to live with it?
  • Which room is it going to be in?
  • What other objects will share the space with it? 
  • Who made it, how did they make it, and what is their story?
