Sustainability is a celebrated aspect of TemaHome’s modern style. The Portuguese furniture company has always presented sleek, contemporary furniture since its early days in 1981 when Portuguese and Norwegian principals came together to craft modern furniture under the name Norema Portuguesa.
This marriage of Scandinavian design and Iberian industry has helped TemaHome become the largest furniture exporter of Portugal. Their high-quality, veneered furniture utilizes the design principles pioneered in the mid century modern movement, featuring beautiful cherry, oak, walnut, beech, and zebrano veneers.
TemaHome’s commitment to providing superior home furnishings extends to ecological responsibility. The company strives to reduce their environmental footprint and increase social progress through ethical material sourcing and efficient manufacturing.
TemaHome’s sustainable approach starts in the design process. The design team, led by award-winning designer Filipe Alarcão, considers the environmental impact of all new designs. Secondly, the company seeks to conserve materials through efficient manufacturing processes, resulting in less waste of resources.
TemaHome’s strict quality control department monitors incoming resources to ensure that no protected wood species are used in their products and all vendors comply with environmental regulations. Lastly, TemaHome is a member of the European Union’s Green Dot society, an initiative for reducing waste and recycling natural resources.
These four tenets support TemaHome’s overall philosophy of finding a harmonious balance between simplicity and sophistication. Thus, the company is creating its own ideal existence as it seeks to help customers fulfill the philosophy, “Living Your Dreams.”
