Lazar has always been focused on eco-conscious furniture--however this was recently brought to the forefront with the launch of their Earth Designs product line. Recycled and recyclable materials are used throughout the manufacturing process, including the frame, cushions, seating system, packaging and other materials. Non-toxic glue and water-based stains are also used. The sleepers within the Earth Designs line have also been drastically upgraded--and re-launched as the Every Night Sleepers. Each Every Night Sleeper includes a larger, better quality mattress than competitors offer in the market place--with an 8.5" thick pillow-top bed measuring 76" long as opposed to the 72" industry standard. The Every Night Sleeper mattress recently passed the Cornell Evaluation for a 10 year mattress standard--a first in the sleeper sofa industry!
