Our collections go back to the essence of what we believe is good design: pieces full of character, made from quality materials that age beautifully. Our products are designed to age incredibly well, and this is an important part of our sustainability. We want our products to last, to pass on their history from one generation to the next.

The Origin of Our Solid Wood
The ultimate noble and renewable material, all our wood is sourced from responsibly and carefully managed forests compliant with the EU Timber Regulations and the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan. In addition, our wood sourced from Indonesia is verified under the Indonesian Timber Legality Assurance System (SVLK).
Our production favors locally-sourced timber. Much of our oak is sourced and processed in Serbia. The wood used in our Indonesian production includes legally-sourced teak, mahogany, rosewood and oak. Since 2013, rosewood has been a protected wood species according to the UN Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). For this reason, we carefully follow the required compliance procedures and will only ever use existing stocks from our facilities.
FSC® Label For Our Teak Furniture
Our teak collection includes products certified as FSC®. Our supplier carries the FSC® CoC (Chain of Custody) certification of their distribution centers.
The Durability of Our Textiles
Our cushion covers, throws, and rugs are crafted from the best weaving yarns which are primarily produced in Belgium, France, Italy, Peru and Pakistan. By consciously choosing natural fibers – such as cotton, wool, and Belgian linen – we stay true to our values: design pieces full of character, made from quality materials that age beautifully.
Cushion inners are made in The Netherlands and are Oeko-Tex 100 certified. The Oeko-Tex label is an international standard that guarantees no harmful substances are contained within the final product. It certifies both natural and synthetic fibers. For the filling of our cushions, our supplier has consciously opted for duck feather. As a natural product, duck feather far surpasses synthetic alternatives in terms of durability and sustainability. All cushion fillers carry the Downpass certification to guarantee high quality, ethical sourcing, and traceable supply chains.
Additional Certificates of Sourcing and Quality
Our manufacturer takes great care to ensure the chemicals used in processing and manufacturing do not violate human, animal, and planetary health. We require certificates and standards from our suppliers to ensure these criteria are met.
· All furniture containing plywood (such as our sofa’s) meet the TSCA VI standard which limits formaldehyde emissions from plywood, particleboard and MDF, etc.
· All upholstered furniture meets California TB 117-2013, the US flammability standard, which prohibits the use of hazardous chemicals.
· All textiles comply with the European REACH regulation.
· Synthetic fibers are made from recycled fibers with GRS certification where possible.
· Wherever possible, we use Blauer Engel certified leather, which guarantees environmental protection and consumer safety.
· Wherever possible, we use water-based finishes.
Craftsmanship has always been at the center for Be Home and we have been committed to connecting the dots between great design and the intelligence of the hand. Our designers work with four manufacturing sites and six ateliers, where products are made or finished by hand to ensure the individual character of each piece.
As we consider wood a precious material, we work to make the most out of each and every piece. We want to remain as environmentally friendly as possible, working to maximize waste reduction from the earliest design stage. With this principle, our team designs to reduce or reuse as much scrap wood as possible. Production waste such as leftover logs, wood and sawdust are re-used for other purposes. The sawdust from logs is either used as fuel for the drying ovens or compressed as a base for pellets. All the leftovers from cutting planks to size are recycled and used as base material or through finger-joint panels.
