Greater user comfort, less impact on the environment.
Choosing to consume responsibly is a major issue at the heart of our lifestyle and our future. It represents the opposite of throw-away culture, which puts a strain on our planet’s natural resources: it’s time to question the quality, durability and origins of the products we consume! We believe everyone can make a difference in this collective effort. We are committed to playing our part, both as a brand and an industrial manufacturer.
LAFUMA MOBILIER is 100% committed to this virtuous approach! It is a major advance both for our customers and for the Environment. We have been anticipating these social issues for several years, aware that we have a major role to play both as a manufacturer and brand.
We are designing furniture that is durable, repairable and produced in sound industrial conditions. Our lightweight, folding and durable furniture reduces issues of collection which is a key point of the AGEC law for the furniture market.
All this is explained for you in detail below!
At Lafuma Mobilier, we stand against planned obsolescence and throw-away culture. The choice of raw materials is paramount. Their quality and their origins are two important criteria. From high-strength steel (lighter and stronger) to 100% polyester powder paint (seven times more UV-resistant than conventional epoxy) and fibreglass-reinforced floor protectors... Some 98% of our materials are produced in Europe, and 68% in France. Our Reclining chair and Deckchair lines are the perfect example of enduring best-sellers, which are continually improved. Created in 1962, we have consistently reworked and innovated these products to guarantee the utmost comfort and durability.
LAFUMA MOBILIER is committed to reducing its environmental impact and, each year, we incorporate more and more recycled materials into our production cycle. Today, our steel is made of 15 to 75% recycled materials depending on the factory, and our aluminium, which is sourced from Belgium, France and Spain, is 80% recycled.
Our products are designed to have a lasting impact on life, whether you relocate or redesign your indoor or outdoor spaces. We chose to go beyond legislation – which only requires manufacturers to guarantee their products for 2 years – by guaranteeing all of our household products for 5 years.
At LAFUMA MOBILIER, we design our collections for the longest possible life cycle. The longevity of furniture depends on its ability to be maintained and to keep in step with current trends.
Access to spare parts is an important priority to us, in terms of availability (via our website or customer service team), price and ease of use. LAFUMA MOBILIER offers a wide choice of stylish replacement fabrics and spare parts, which are easy to replace at affordable prices.
Repairing a product is cheaper than constantly replacing a poor-quality product, and this approach conserves natural resources. It’s a win-win situation!
Moving forward, we will work with the Sermaco and Eco-Mobilier teams on our future developments to improve our approach to sorting. LAFUMA MOBILIER would like to thank Jocelyn Berne for welcoming our team at the site, and Benoît Godon of Eco-Mobilier for organising the visit. It gave our team a great deal of inspiration!
