Eerlijk refurbished

Fair Furnished is the Fair Furniture Group’s new label that we give to products that are given a second – or third – life through our Circular Centre. This is something we do brand-independently. With the Fair Furnished label, we guarantee a quality at least equal to the original quality and with the same guarantee. Often, we even improve the product because any materials we replace are more sustainable and therefore even more suitable for a third and fourth life.

The name Fair Furnished was chosen consciously because it is about so much more than just the refurbishment of a product.

Circular Centre

The Circular Centre in Emmen is the circular heart of the Fair Furniture Group. This is where we give existing furniture a second – or rather – circular life. The Circular Centre in Emmen is the circular heart of the Fair Furniture Group.

Circulair Centrum

Across an area of no less than 12,000 m2, the following operations take place;

  • storage of existing furniture for circular contracts;
  • storage of components we use to repair furniture;
  • assessment, maintenance, cleaning and repair of existing furniture;
  • disassembly of incoming furniture which is then returned into the production process;
  • assembly of furniture after the components have been refurbished or reupholstered in various departments at our production sites;
  • sustainable separation of non-reusable parts from furniture.

Not all operations take place in the CCE, but ” just ” in the departments at our production sites, such as the upholstery shop and wood spraying shop. This effectively positions the Circular Centre as a hub from which departments are managed and where processes then converge again.

In short:

1

Used furniture sustainably refurbished to ”as good as new” condition in our own factories.

2

New circular furniture made from sustainable and circular raw materials.

Circular production

Our production runs on renewable electricity. There are over 3,000 solar panels on the roof of our Circular Centre and we use this electricity to produce our own green hydrogen. We restore biodiversity in our GreenField with flower mixtures, bee hotels and we grow crops suitable for circular production. In the food garden, we grow vegetables and fruit for the local food bank. Rainwater from the roof is collected in the wadi so it can infiltrate into the groundwater.

Circulaire productie

The quality of the products we revitalise is at least equal to new. We can guarantee this because our metalworkers, woodworkers and upholsterers have the most advanced production resources, craftsmanship and 70,000 m2 of production space where we also make our new sustainable and circular products. Production of circular new furniture and refurbishment literally intertwine in the factory. After all, at component level, the process is not any different.

Circular projects

In recent years we have helped a lot of organisations with their circular design. These solutions are very diverse. After all, every project requires customisation. Where in one project it´s ‘only’ a few chairs that are fitted with a new coat of paint and upholstery, in other projects we create a completely new interior of an office building where we use as many existing products as possible as a basis for the new furniture.

We highlight a number of circular projects here.
