At PVI, we often describe some of our furniture as being “green”. Many people think that means furniture pieces are eco-friendly—but, it is way beyond that.

Green furniture can also mean the products that made the furniture are from a sustainable forest, have low toxic material levels, and are manufactured locally. These products are known to contribute to low chemical emissions. At PVI, our green furniture is part of the GREENGUARD Certification Program—meaning our furniture meets strict chemical emission limits, which contributes to the creation of healthier interiors.
