Why Choose Lee?
You can buy a car in an afternoon and decide on a house after a weekend of looking. So why is it so difficult to decide on the perfect sofa or chair? It's simple: You can't open up a piece of furniture and look inside. That's why it's so important to choose a manufacturer that reveres quality and uses only the finest materials available. And that manufacturer is undoubtedly LEE. We make every piece of our furniture right here in the USA. And we go far beyond just building a piece of furniture. We craft it, obsess over it and test it over and over again until it's perfect. In fact, it won't leave our plant unless we would put it in our very own home.
A few things - besides our unmatched quality and style - make us stand out from our competition. We only use steel coil springs in our eight-way hand-tied seat decks. This keeps your springs from shifting and creating uncomfortable lumps and bumps. Each spring is supported by polypropylene and steel strapping to provide you with the most long lasting and comfortable seating known to man. Also, all our frames are certified, select kiln-dried hardwoods. The joints are double-doweled and every corner is blocked, screwed and glued. That means that your furniture will not creak, sag, split or warp, no matter what. And if you know LEE, you know our fabric selections are a cut above with more than 1000 fabrics and 80 leathers to choose from.
Also, while many companies are adding the "green" label to their name, LEE has a long track record of eco-friendly manufacturing. We use naturalLEE soy-based cushions, certified frames, recycled filling for pillows, water based stains, and offer many organic and natural fabrics. In our manufacturing process, we reuse or recycle approximately 95% of all the materials that enter the production stream. Just by using the naturalLEE cushions, in 2007 alone, LEE Industries has saved over 10,000 gallons of crude oil and has eliminated 54,000 pounds of CO2 emissions.
LEE is demonstrating that making a change does not compromise the quality or integrity of the product. We are sourcing more domestic and organic fabrics to bring you additional alternatives in upholstery fabric. We are also offering an upgrade to our standard soy-based cushion called the Eco-Lux cushion. The luxuriously soft Eco-Lux cushion is made with a soy-based foam wrapped in a 50/50 goose down and Ingeo™ fiber blend. Ingeo™ is the world's first viable synthetic fiber that is derived entirely from annually renewable resources. You can also choose a frame that comes from certified sustainable forests. And we guarantee that the product you receive from LEE is made in the USA by craftsmen that are experts in their field and take pride in their workmanship.
So why choose Lee? With our unparalleled quality, style and love of the environment, why not?
