Ire Möbel always strives to eliminate the use of environmentally hazardous raw materials and manufacturing processes by continuously working on improvements, thus avoiding contamination.
We only use material without freon and we use water-based glue. Surface treatment of metal parts is made with solvent-free powder coating. Textile covered models have loose washable and replaceable clothing, which reduces resource utilization, since after wear, only the clothing needs to be replaced.
Ire Möbel's employees must be constantly updated and motivated to use the most environmentally friendly materials, transport and manufacturing methods. Obviously, the laws and other requirements that concern the current environmental aspects to which the company is affected are followed.
In order to achieve this, Ire sets environmental goals for the business annually, and corrections and improvements are continuously made in connection with the overall and detailed goals.
Download Environmental Policy Signed
Sustainability has always been a fundamental part of our philosophy at Ire. This concept covers both our design and our production. It is our conviction that furniture that has a long lifetime is the best choice for our environment.
An important part of our sustainability philosophy is the timelessness of our design. The furniture will be able to age with pleasure in any interior environment.
We have hard quality requirements. Our wooden furniture frames are manufactured in Swedish woodwork and polyether molded and produced in Småland.
This means that when you get tired of the fabric - or the fabric is worn out - you can change the covering and continue to use your furniture for many years.
10 years Makeover guarantee!
This guarantee means that we save the patterns for your furniture for at least 10 years so that we can make a new cover in a fabric from the existing fabric collection. It is possible even if the model has been modified or expired from our collection. On each furniture there is an order number under the sofa. Save this number so we can get all the facts about your furniture and produce a new fabric cover. However, we can not guarantee that the same fabric is still available.
This certification, which we have since 2010, puts constant pressure on us to constantly review every detail of our business based on environmental sustainability. This means, for example, continually reducing our electricity consumption, sorting waste, working with renewable materials, reducing the number of chemicals, printing on fewer paper, and more. This rigorous program is followed up with internal and external audits every year.
Svanen and Möbelfakta
Some of our furniture are Svanen labeled. Some are also labeled with the Furniture Industry's own certification Möbelfakta, which includes environmental sustainability, quality and social responsibility. We are working that more of our furniture will meet the stringent requirements for these classifications.
To ensure the highest quality and comfort and the longest life expectancy for our furniture, we make strict demands in all our manufacturing. These requirements include:
We work with carefully chosen designers who, together with our own product developer and our craftsmen, work out our furniture from scratch based on sketches and prototypes. Based on long experience, we choose which materials and which construction are most suitable. We do not take shortcuts in the development of furniture with optimal design, comfort and durability.
Our frames are made exclusively of carefully chosen Swedish wood, mainly pine and beech. Our sturdy, well-made frames guarantee greater comfort and longer lifetime.
Cutting of fabrics
All cutting of fabrics is done with computer-programmed machines, ensuring maximum accuracy and minimum waste.
Selection of fabrics
Every year we visit large fabric fairs like Proposte in Como in Italy and Mood in Brussels and are constantly looking for fabrics that meet our high standards - aesthetically and qualitatively. For quality and environmental reasons, we choose our fabrics only from Europe.
Cutting of leather
To be able to chose the best parts of the hides we do all cutting by hand.
Every piece of furniture is approved by the upholsterer who personally signs the piece of furniture which she/he has made.
Sustainability is a fundamental part in our philosophy at Ire. Part of this philosophy is the ten-year Makeover guarantee that we provide for those of our sofas and armchairs that have removable fabric coverings. In this guarantee, the covering of the furniture are:
It is safe to know that the covering on your furniture is completely removable. This means that the covers on the sides, back, armrests and cushions can be removed in a relatively simple way.
You will find washing instructions inside the fabric covers. If your clothing is removeable and washable it is good to know that the fabric needs to be damp when you put it back on.
We guarantee that you can buy a new covering for your sofa within 10 years, even though the model would have been modified in the meantime. Save the order number under the furniture so we can get all the information and make a new fabric cover.
