A GREEN-FOCUSED, AMERICAN-MADE PARTNERSHIP

RWF is excited to announce a partnership with SHAW LIVING (shawfloors.com) during the upcoming Spring Furniture Market in High Point, North Carolina. Why partner with a flooring manufacturer? Because we share some very important business priorities—including our common dedication to an American-made product and our devotion to environmental stewardship. SHAW is a flooring industry leader in sustainability and has created a carpet recycling program as well as other forward-thinking initiatives known as "Shaw Green Edge." You can learn more about all of these at shawfloors.com.

The RWF High Point booth (IH-200) will feature a Paradiso Paisley rug from the Tommy Bahama Home Collection by Shaw Living. This gorgeous floor covering with an updated grand scale, elaborately hand colored pattern, and soothing palette of blue, green, gold, brown, beige, and a touch of spice, will be a beautiful under-foot accessory to the RWF collection of hand-crafted walnut pieces.

At SHAW's High Point showroom (IHFC, Green Wing, Suite 371) an RWF solid walnut low table will be accessorizing SHAW's beautiful flooring selections. Robin has been working with SHAW's showroom designer to choose additional pieces, such as four-foot long benches, for their space.

Be sure to witness this exciting, American-made, environmentally focused collaboration during High Point's Spring Furniture Market by visiting both showrooms. We'll see you there!

About RWF

Robin Wade Furniture is a celebration of nature—a melding of a forward thinking commitment to the environment and a quiet, harmonious design aesthetic. From his "slow studio" in North Alabama, award-winning wood artist Robin Wade designs and crafts one-of- a-kind handmade furniture.
 
Years before a piece is ready to enter a client's home or a gallery, the process begins—naturally—with the tree. Sustainably harvested, each specimen of hardwood is flitch sawn into natural-edge wood slabs, debarked by hand with a draw knife, and stacked to dry, usually for years, before the final cure in the kiln. From here, Wade and his team use both hand and power tools to bring Wade's vision to life, and then finish each piece with a hand-rubbed oil blend.
 
Each Robin Wade Furniture piece is a real, 100% natural product—something created in nature and made into functional furnishings by wood artist Robin Wade. With these works of art, there is no veneer to mask inferior products, no stain to hide a woodʼs natural grain or color, no clear cutting of forests foreign or domestic, no importing to pollute the earthʼs waters, no long-distance trucking to pollute our air.
 
Each organic furniture creation by Robin Wade Furniture balances the raw, natural beauty of environmentally, locally sourced hardwoods with minimally invasive, clean lines—a juxtaposition Wade calls both rustic and modern. “I havenʼt yet found a better artist than nature,” he says.
