In honor of today, Earth Day, we are featuring another of our favorite ‘green’ furniture lines. Lee is an upholstery staple for our interiors and our shop. They have been manufacturing quality, American-made furniture since 1969. Many people do not realize that Lee started making an effort to protect our environment long before the recent ‘green craze’.

As far back as the 1980’s they introduced their Ecology Plus program that used products that eliminated chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gases from their manufacturing components, and these have been identified as gases that eat away at our Earth’s Ozone Layer. We are getting scientific today!
They now offer naturalLEE products featuring soy-based cushions, recycled fiber fillings for pillows and organic & natural fabrics to simply name a few. The icing on the cake, however, is that for each piece of naturalLEE furniture sold a tree will be donated to American Forests!
Happy Earth Day from the entire crew at Tracery!
