Contract Furniture Company and Lilianne Steckel Design Team Up for an Eco-Friendly Endeavor in Austin, TX

Lilianne Steckel and Contract Furniture Company

Broom Recycled Eco-Friendly Chair

While working on the Austin Bouldering Project – a hot new bouldering gym in Austin, TX – designer Lilianne Steckel found herself “… under a time and budget constraint.” She called Contract Furniture Company and, after speaking with Project Manager Carrie Sharer, told us that she “was happy to have been able to order everything and stay within budget.” Her search for chic eco-friendly furniture was over.

Eco-Friendly Emeco Broom Chair





Designer Eco-Friendly Chairs

When designing the upstairs public area at Austin Bouldering Project, which is a huge social lounge on the mezzanine, Ms. Steckel knew her client’s desire to create “a big, friendly, welcoming and beautiful space, a comfortable place to crack open the laptop, or the newspaper.” The Broom Recycled chair by Emeco was chosen as the primary seating for this lounge, so that the look was both modern and eco-friendly. Says Ms. Steckel, “People love these Broom chairs! They are really comfortable, we’ve already ordered more!”

Eco-Friendly Industrial Bar Stool





Urban Farm Reclaimed Wood Bar Stool




In addition to providing a social space for clientele, ABP also wanted to provide a work/study area that overlooked the bouldering gym. For this area, Lilianne Steckel Design chose the eco-friendly Urban Farm bar stool with reclaimed teak wood seat. The result? “Everyone loves them. They are a great industrial addition to this work counter area. Providing an industrial vibe yet still warm and appealing to sit in for hours.” We couldn’t agree more, as the Urban Farm is one of our favorite stools. It’s eco-chic at its finest.
