When Anne Ebel began selling resin benches back in 1988 in Virginia Beach it is doubtful she knew just exactly how it would all end up. Fast forward to 2017 and you now have Ebel, Incorporated, a world-wide distributer of premium patio furniture. While its operations are now located in Jacksonville, Florida, the Ebel company is partnered with dealers across the entire United States, into Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean. You will find Ebel patio furniture in residential and commercial properties all over the globe. Yet Ebel continues to operate with the same family values that were the bedrock of that original business endeavor.
One of those values is to be environmentally conscious. Fully aware of the impact the manufacturing process can have on the global environment, Ebel makes every effort to be conscious of their carbon footprint. Every aluminum and wicker product they distribute is 100% recyclable and teak is harvested exclusively from sustainable plantations. Ebel is also conscious of providing products designed to last, which, in turn, reduces the amount of waste.
Taking their environmental concerns a step further, Ebel has been partnered with Trees for the Future since 2008. This organization is committed to advancing sustainable agroforestry in developing countries. In an effort to offset carbon emissions, Ebel, Inc. has committed to plant one tree for every piece of furniture they produce. Trees for the Future have planted nearly 50 million trees, estimated to remove one million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere every year; Ebel has contributed over 85,000 of those trees.
For the past 7 years, Ebel has also printed all of their marketing materials in a facility that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, an organization whose mission is to promote environmentally responsible, socially beneficial and economically viable forestry practices.
Environmental Ebel has another interest as well; providing you with beautifully designed, skillfully rendered and expertly manufactured casual furniture. A perfect example of this is their ever-popular and extensive Dreux Collection. The Dreux is constructed of the very finest raw materials; high density polyurethane wicker that has been UV tested to 5000 hours with no discoloring, fading or chalking. The internal aluminum frame is powder-coated, rustproof and built to last. Take a look below at Dreux Deep Seating.
The richly colored, extra thick wicker weave has the appearance of natural materials. It is available in both a dark and light weave . Within the Dreux Collection you will find dining chairs and tables, a sofa, loveseat, lounge chair, swivel lounge chair, occasional tables and this killer daybed!
Something Ebel does very well is to allow you the option for some mixing and matching. The trend today is to incorporate several textures and styles together for a look that is unique and personalized. For example, these Dreux dining chairs look amazing with the wood-like finish of the Napoli dining table.
And speaking of the Napoli, this gorgeous aluminum furniture has been hand-finished to give the appearance of natural wood without the upkeep or concerns wood furniture can present. The Napoli Collection features deep seating and dining options in a splendid driftwood finish.
A completely different look can be found in the Calais Sectional. This over-sized, contemporary wicker seating option can be customized to your particular needs and it is super comfortable to boot. The Calais Collection also features a coordinating deep seating grouping.
For a more transitional look, check out the Belfort. This modernized version of the traditional wing back chair looks phenomenal in a variegated wicker weave. The matching dining collection features a scaled down version of those same elegant chairs.
Another Ebel exclusive; their luxurious cushions are made to order and each cushion is tailored for each frame. Ebel offers a lovely assortment of fabric choices, all of them designer inspired and suitable for outdoors.
Keep Ebel in mind when you are shopping for your next and best set of patio furniture. In their own words, you will find “environmentally responsible elegance” in every piece.
