MVFC in Natural Home & Garden Magazine

We are thrilled to have been mentioned by Natural Home & Garden Magazine in their article "A Healthier Home: Furnishings and Decor to Reduce Indoor Air Pollution." The magazine featured MVFC's Menemsha Side Table as an example of solid hevea wood finished in zero-VOC paint. 

 The Menemsha Side Table is part of our many shades of green™ line, which is constructed of solid hevea wood. Hevea trees are tapped for their sap, much like a maple tree. This sap is the primary source for most of the world’s latex production. When hevea trees stop producing sufficient sap after 25 to 30 years, the trees are typically cut down and burned; while a new tree is planted in its place. Using these discarded trees for furniture production is a great form of sustainability. Hevea wood is quite strong and can be compared to white oak or teak making it an ideal material for furniture construction. And, like the article said, each piece of furniture in our many shades of green™ line is finished in a water-based ZERO VOC paint. 

 The article provides readers with great tips on surrounding yourself with comfortable, clean, and healthy furnishings and finishes. Be sure to pick up the May/June issue soon!

Coordinates Coffee Table from the Destination Collection

Our Destination Collection unveiled last spring has evolved into a great success! The natural, reclaimed finishes matched with zip codes from around the island proved to be ideal furnishings for many island homes and residents. In addition to our  favorite pieces from the collection - the "Townie" pillows, the Longitude & Latitude Console Table (to name a few) - we are pleased to add the Coordinates Coffee Table.

First seen in the Boston Globe feature last fall, Liz's design provides table space and additional casual seating when needed.  As part of the collection, the table was originally offered in reclaimed barn wood, so we are excited to have just installed a white version in a client's guest house. The guest house features a crisp, white kitchen surrounded by neutral colors on the walls, sofa and rug. The white, high-gloss finished coffee table paired with four raffia finished ottomans draws the space together, creating a complimentary center point in the room. As every home is different, this table can be customized to suit any space!
