Atmosphere Furniture

Atmosphere Furniture

Atmosphere is one of the US firms that has its high-quality custom designs manufactured in Brazil; Shelly Baduay, who heads the Los Angeles–based company, calls it a symbiotic arrangement. “We work only with wood certified by the Brazilian government,” she says. “That means we never use any tree until it has completed its life cycle, and we’re proud to be able to produce 300 pieces of furniture from a single tree. It also means that it may well be five more years before we receive another such specimen of a particular tree.”
