More than furniture. It’s an extension of character.
Each piece of GuildMaster furniture is a work of art, custom created just for you. From hand painted finishes and designs to carved Indonesian hardwood, you’ll find beauty in the details and satisfaction in knowing your furnishings are handmade of the world’s finest materials.
Artists go beyond the canvas to work in the richest colors and textures on hand-carved wood, recaptured door panels, aged fabric, terra cotta tiles, and more. Their extensive collection features unique styles from whimsical garden to timeless heirloom, taking inspiration from something old with a twist of something new. Then bring those creations to light with distressed finishes, hand-painted details, and rich textures to make each one distinct.
The Guildmaster Eco Story
At GuildMaster, we recognize it is every company’s responsibility to operate in a manner that is respectful of people and the planet. We employ hundreds of workers at our overseas factories and treat them with the same rights and privileges of their U.S. counterparts. We donate time and money to support orphanages in both Indonesia and China. And we are constantly working to improve the eco friendliness of all of our business practices. We are full members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, and our head of operations has earned accreditation through their GREENleaders Certified Sustainability Training program.
One of our main sustainability initiatives is a tree replanting program we set up in Indonesia. Deforestation is a significant problem in many countries in the developing world, nowhere more so than in this island nation where forest coverage has declined -20% over the past 20 years. To help combat this devastation, we created our own program to replace the mahogany trees that we use to build our furniture, replanting over a thousand trees so far.
We emphasize solid wood construction to minimize the use of adhesives and other additives and use only low formaldehyde formulations to reduce harmful off-gassing of VOC’s. We are currently experimenting with water-based lacquer finishes to reduce them even further. And we have an ongoing project to identify ways to pack products more efficiently to minimize transportation and waste.
