A deeper interpretation of sustainability.


Skram minimizes waste and the use of harmful chemicals, and uses responsibly harvested materials. Beyond these practices, skram is committed to an approach that rejects built-in obsolescence and argues for the creation of objects of lasting beauty, crafted with care, and intended for a lifetime of use. Conservation and recycling are mainstays of the environmental movement, and the company is dedicated to such practices. But, in an era when trends of fashion and shoddy construction make quick biodegradability necessary, Skram is something of an anachronism—a company that believes that quality is more than a slogan, and that innovative design paired with meticulous workmanship and authentic materials yields objects of enduring value.


Traditional techniques and modern technologies.


The area where Skram is located, the Piedmont region of North Carolina, has for decades been a hub of furniture manufacturing. In recent years, thousands have lost jobs as furniture companies and ancillary firms closed or relocated overseas. Skram’s rise in the midst of this decline is no accident—it is the result of a model of manufacturing that achieves sustainable growth through the creation of objects of enduring value and sound design. Skram’s approach to manufacturing is rooted in the belief that the objects produced by a society are a reflection of the character of that society. The company promotes an interpretation of sustainability that shapes both what is produced and the mode of production. Thus, Skram furniture merges cutting edge technology with traditional fabrication techniques, bringing the artisan back to the factory and producing objects on a scale that permits the fulfillment of volume orders without sacrificing the attention to detail expected by a discerning clientele. Quality, durability, restraint, utility—Skram furniture is a reflection of these resurgent American ideals. Leading by example, the company embodies an ethic that merges innovative, useful design and an encompassing view of sustainability.

Skram exists for those who value innovative design, honest materials, and uncommon workmanship.
