A Designer’s Perspective: Vanguard Furniture

We follow lots of blogs on design and furniture. And we highly recommend you read designer Donna Vining’s. This post originally appeared there. It was such a great piece, we just had to share it with you! Read the original post in it’s entirety here.

Vanguard is a beautifully designed high-end furniture line that has been in the business for over 40 years. They are a fashion-driven company with a mission to lead the furnishing world in style, value, and quality.

Vanguard has many collections in the company, two of which are with impact designers, Michael Weiss and Thom Filicia. Each collection is has a distinct style, but with all 7 collections, Vanguard has pieces for all design styles. Another collection Vanguard offers is the ‘Make it Yours‘, which allows you some custom ability, ranging from case goods to upholstery. To see more of their collections, click Here.

Also, Vanguard is very aware of doing their part for our environment. Their green initiative recycles 95% of all manufacturing waste, recycle paper, fabric scraps, metal, wood scrap, plastic and corrugated products. Vanguard is a founding member of Sustainable Furniture Council. I’m always happy to hear about furniture companies doing their part to help our environment.
