ISFD launches corporate partner program with Canadian Wood

HIGH POINT — The International Society of Furniture Designers has launched its corporate partner program, with Canadian Wood as its first partner.

“Our corporate partner program recognizes preferred industry suppliers who support ISFD’s mission to promote great home furnishings design,” said David Blair, executive director of ISFD. “Canadian Wood promotes the use of world class, environmentally friendly forest products from British Columbia, Canada. With specialists located in Vancouver, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and India, it is a great resource for furniture designers and manufacturers seeking information and support for using sustainable wood products from B.C. forests.

“We plan to share with our members the benefits of using beautiful, resilient and versatile Western hemlock and Douglas fir in their work.”

Jim Messer, vice president of international marketing at Forestry Innovation Investment, added, “We are looking forward to introducing our sustainably sourced Canadian wood species from British Columbia to the ISFD furniture designers and manufacturers. Wood species from B.C. are popular because of their natural beauty, durability and strong environmental reputation. They are affordable alternatives over traditional hardwood species, are versatile and easy to work with, and are ideal for a wide range of traditional and contemporary furniture and home furnishings solutions.”
