“Our First Upholstery Company Is Also Our Most Earth Friendly”
Over the last 30+ years, we’ve sold thousands of Lee Industries sofas, chairs, ottomans, and beds. We have re-upholstered many of them for clients two or three times. As the very first upholstery company we ever used, Lee always contributed heavily to the Kibler & Kirch look. The infinite range of possibilities available through their selection of frames, fabrics, leather, welts, nail heads, stitching, sizes, and cushion options allow us to do our very best work creating interiors that reflect the personality of our customers. We love selling Lee products because we know they will faithfully serve the needs of generations. We’ve always thought that the most environmentally sound choice is to begin with an eye for quality and to invest in furniture that will provide product longevity to our customers–something that Lee helps us achieve every day.
As such, each one-of-a-kind Lee piece is handcrafted in Newton, NC by a team of craftsmen that are experts in their field and take pride in their workmanship. Add this to top quality, uncompromised materials and you have products that go beyond a piece of furniture to become pieces of art able to handle slumber parties and afternoon naps. They combine the style and quality that we take seriously. All Lee sofas and chairs are made with double-doweled frames that are corner blocked from kiln-dried hardwoods. All seats are constructed with 8-way hand tied springs and frames are padded for extra comfort. They are, without question, the most well-constructed products available for the price. As a third generation company, the youngest members of the Lee family are committed to making environmentally responsible choices at every level of production. Sustainability initiatives for Lee began in 1969–decades before it became the status quo. Today, sustainability for the company means certified sustainable frames, soy-based cushions, recycled metals and fibers, low VOC and water-based finishes, and a partnership with American Forests, planting trees for their Global Relief Projects. This helps reduce the amount of Co2 in the air while their FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and SFI (Sustainability Forestry Initiative) certifications allow Lee to manage the chain of custody for hardwoods used to build furniture frames. Add these responsible practices to paper-less communications, judicious internal recycling and energy conservation and you see why Lee is a leader among manufacturers, retailers, and consumers.
