C.R. Laine


Pardon us, our Green is showing

Why is it that we associate the colour of green with sustainable practices and products? Besides the obvious connection to the colour of grass, green is actually the colour that most represents balance and harmony. According to the president of SOAP (Sustainable Organization Advocacy Partners), John Rooks, “True sustainability does not need a colour, sustainability is transparent”. CR Laine’s story of sustainability is nothing but transparent …Did you know that CR Laine has been EFEC (Enhancing Furniture’s Environmental Culture) and SBD (Sustainable by Design) registered since 2008? After 9 long months of analyzing all environmental aspects of our company, CR Laine became the very first company to achieve the American Home Furnishing Alliance’s rigorous 5 step Sustainable by Design program on October 1, 2008.Although several businesses may see this process as a large undertaking and expense, we have found the outcome to be quite the opposite. By simply changing our way of thinking and by implementing new, yet simple, conservation and recycling processes, we’ve added thousands of dollars back to our bottom line and diverted several tons of upholstery waste away from the landfills. By making these small changes, we have become sustainable in all aspects of our company rather than simply creating a “green” line of furniture. CR Laine is committed to preserving the resources of our world for future generations.All CR Laine upholstery comes standard with the following sustainable features…

  • Frames made from responsibly harvested hardwoods certified sustainable from Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers, Inc.  
  • Water-based wood adhesives with no VOC emissions
  • Eight-way hand-tied coil springs made with recycled metal
  • Natural soy-based foam
  • Seat deck and trim pad made from regenerated fibers 






Polystone Moulding

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Moulded from real Florida limestone complete with fossil imprints, the closed cell construction is waterproof and can be used inside and out. Held in place with a Liquid Nails-type adhesive, or screwed into place, Polystone is then grouted using a mixture of latex paint and sand that is easily applied with a caulking tube. It can be resprayed with latex paint and cut with a handsaw.

The product is coated in a washable latex paint which makes cleaning easy with mild soap and a soft brush. The grout material used in the joints between the product is a latex paint mixed with sand which can be applied with a standard caulking gun. If the product is damaged in any way, it may be resprayed with a matching latex paint. The product is very easily installed with a construction adhesive, mechanical fasteners (nails, screws,etc…), and a simple hand saw. It can easily transform a room without having to hire a mason.

SeaCloth at Lee Jofa

SeaCloth was born from the combined talents and shared vision of two entrepreneurial women, Susan Harris and Deirdre Halper. Susan, an accomplished fine artist, became convinced that art should not be confined to a frame. Testing her theory she tried her hand at textile design. Deirdre, a former marketing executive, met Susan and after seeing her work, immediately envisioned not only textiles, but an entire lifestyle brand. The complementary skills of the two set SeaCloth into motion. In 2003, SeaCloth launched four initial collections – Gypsy Palette, Watermark, Sun Splash and Beach Party – in design showrooms including John Rosselli & Associates in New York City and Washington, D.C., and Ainsworth Noah in Atlanta. By early 2004, the first SeaCloth retail store opened in Greenwich, Connecticut, showcasing the company’s textiles and comprehensive line of home furnishings and decorative accessories. SeaCloth continues to blossom. Susan and Deirdre spend their time working with the SeaCloth team, designing additional collections and developing new products. With its 2008 incorporation into Lee Jofa’s diverse and exciting array of brands, SeaCloth has joined an illustrious tradition that serves interior designers across the country.

Kravet Fabric Care

Kravet Soleil [Sunbrella]

Fade Resistant * Mildew Resistant * Weather Resistant
These fabrics have been designed for indoor/outdoor use. Sunbrella fabrics are UV resistant and water repellant and will resist fading for 2200 light hours in direct sun. Sunbrella does not promote mildew growth. However, mildew may grow on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed from the fabric by frequent vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic bristled brush.
Most dirt and stains can be spot cleaned using a soft bristled brush and a solution of mild soap and warm water.
For stubborn stains, add four ounces of liquid bleach to one gallon warm water and clean with a soft bristled brush. Always rinse thoroughly and air dry.
For removable covers, machine wash in cold water with a mild soap and air dry. If machine drying is preferred, use a no-heat setting.
