Sustainability is becoming an important concern for people when they buy furniture. The design world, brands and manufacturers are widely accepting this eco-trend. To that end, UPPAREL, a sustainability-focused Australian brand that toils with upcycled textile, has introduced children’s sofa made in its signature style.
Called FlipUP, it is the world’s first circular flip-out children’s sofa made from 100-percent upcycled textiles and is recyclable at the end of life. Its unique foldable design allows it to be expanded to serve as a cozy bed for kids. Once flipped out, the mattress and a bed are ready for a quick nap after a long day of play.
Using specialized machinery, the company upcycles old clothes into a comfortable and sustainable cushion for the sofa, while recycled filling is used to keep up with the sustainable theme. FlipUP sofa is also accompanied by a fabric cover made entirely from recycled plastic bottles.
This zero-waste couch takes care of its eco-responsibility and serves as an elegant and functional item at home. When your kid’s grown up, the FlipUP can be returned to the company for upcycling. Available in four colors, it can be pre-ordered right now at a discounted price of $135 from the official website.
