LEE Industries is a North Carolina based family owned business that is a leader in fine furnishings and upholsteries. Lee Industries, already a leader in home furnishings adheres to all inspiring values: honesty, integrity and accountability while creating quality and innovatively styled furniture in their Eco-friendly line cleverly named, Natural LEE.
LEE Industries has been providing quality furniture, craftsmanship, and comfort that it has built it’s reputation on for over 30 years and are now using “responsible” components to offer handmade one of a kind pieces under the “Natural LEE” brand name.
Natural LEE wood frames are made with sustainable wood and 80% recycled metal components. Back cushions, throws, seat and arm padding are all made with renewable or recycled fibers. Finishes are water based and fabrics are made from natural or organic fibers.
As part of their ever conscious efforts to lessen the impact on the environment, they sweeten the deal (if you need that little extra incentive) by donating one tree to “American Forests” for each purchase. American Forests is the oldest nonprofit citizen organization for planting, restoration and conservation of trees in our forests. In addition, LEE Industries is working closely with the SFC, (“Sustainable Furniture Council”) to help develop guidelines for sustainability standards in the home furnishings industry.
Natural Lee is paving the way to a safer planet and a healthier home, making conscious business appear effortless and inspiring.
