At SofaSale we are sincerely concerned about the lack of alternative solutions brought forward for reduction of the annual waste production of its local residents in combination by the limited waste disposal or treatment facilities. With our Recycle your Blues campaign we would like to create awareness of the waste problem we are facing in Hong Kong. We would like to educate Hong Kong residents, that some items in our daily waste stream can be valuable and deserve a second life. In many countries Denim jeans are being recycled, shredded and re-used for home isolation, this kind of initiatives do not exist in Hong Kong.
We think, this needs to change, with your help we can make a difference.
On a daily basis we are working on furniture designs and furniture production. We see creative opportunities using recycled jeans in our furniture designs. We started by creating unique Sofa furniture pieces from recycled jeans, and we are quite excited about using recycled materials in our designs. We hope by bringing this Blue furniture products to the Hong Kong market we can make a statement towards different government organisations and hope to start up a constructive and open dialogue on how to the solve the Waste Crisis in Hong Kong. We believe we need to do this together to ensure both the recycling rate is going up and the waste treatment will become green and sustainable.
We would like to encourage all readers to share their ideas and if you like our idea of recycling jeans furniture, do check your wardrobe and see what jeans are worn down and no longer useful. Please do not throw them away, instead please send them to SofaSale. We will use your jeans and hopefully transfer them into unique Blue furniture!
Advantages of Solid Ash Furniture
Ash gives furniture pieces a solid, crisp line – the honey-toned wood has a subtle elegance and a timeless look. Ash furniture has a clean natural look and feel and does not overpower a room. If you want to keep the atmosphere bright and create the impression of space, choosing ash furniture opens up the room and makes the most of natural light coming in. For the best space-creating layout, use furniture that is similar in style and with the same colour of wood in order to create order and calm. Using a mirror to reflect light also enhances the sense of space in a small area.
Solid ash wood sourced from renewable American forests brings a warmth and tranquility to the room. You can choose from a variety of pieces in our ash collection, including dining tables, solid ash bed frames, wardrobes, benches and stools.

Having a bar or an island in the kitchen is pretty much a must. It’s a very functional thing to have, plus it gives you the opportunity to incorporate bar stools in your design and they’re one of those elements that elevate the style in a room. There are numerous types of bar stools you can choose from and the decision has to be based on the overall style of the décor. So let’s focus on the Oriental BarStool.
The idea behind the Oriental High Stool-collection has been to develop a chair with conspicuous simplicity. A chair which works just as well around the dining table as around a conference table, in a canteen or at the office. The ambition of designer Lesley Too has been to reach a higher level in the combination of form, function, comfort, detail and aesthetics.
Universal, timeless and ultra comfortable, the Oriental High Stool consists of a large shell in of curved poly wood and thick leather seating cushion. Feet and base in powder coated steel form the natural extension of the seat. Tilt, curves or variations in thickness: the seat is designed in every detail to fit perfectly the body and provide optimum comfort.

Chesterfield sofas are the large couches with rolled arms the same height as the back, with deep button tufting and nail-head trim. The lore around the Chesterfield is that it was invented when the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Stanhope (1694-1773), commissioned a similar sofa in the mid-18th century.
The Chesterfield sofa - one of the oldest and most desirable sofa styles - is seeing a very well-deserved resurgence in popularity. As "the king of sofas," the Chesterfield bring a huge amount of style and comfort to any home or business.
Chesterfields make an impact - that's why we love them so much. But without balance, their massive forms and attention-grabbing tufts can steal all the attention from the room surrounding them. To balance out a Chesterfield, consider bring in some clean-lined modern elements and/or rustic forms. Integrate furniture and artwork with strong colours, and experiment with a fun area rug.
CHESTERFIELDS MAKE AN IMPACT - THAT'S WHY WE LOVE THEM SO MUCH.
One of the best positions for a Chesterfield is floating in the middle of a room. The distinctive rolled back rest looks great from behind (unlike the backs of many sofas) and the low profile prevents the sofa from becoming a visual barrier in the room. This is perfect for creating a conversation area within a larger space. Your Chesterfield won't block the view across the room, but will still define the space-within-a-space. This unique ability to float while adding interest is why Chesterfield sofas are so popular in the lobbies of luxurious boutique hotels and sophisticated lounges.
Placing a Chesterfield in a more modern environment may mean opting for brighter, bolder colours like orange, light blue, or bright red, or lighter neutrals like mid-tone grey, white, or linen. These lighter colours prevent the visual mass of the Chesterfield from overwhelming the room with too dark of a colour - a good option for rooms without dark walls.
Chesterfields are typically shown with ornately-styled legs. Turned legs are the most common, followed by a variety of bun feet, some fluted, some with casters. Square tapers make occasional appearances for a more modern look. Chesterfield legs vary from around four inches tall to about six inches. We offer our Chesterfield sofas and armchairs with a variety of leg styles and colours. In addition to standard wood stain colours, we can match a specific stain or even paint the legs.

Such is the iconic status of the Barcelona chair that it has its own page in the Barcelona Yellow Pages. Not only that but it is one of the oldest modern classics still around. It was designed in 1929 for the Spanish Royal Family by the German designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
Mies (as he is commonly known) is regarded as a pioneer of modern furniture. His style was deceptively simple with clean lines and he used modern materials such as stainless steel and plate glass in his buildings, which he referred to as "skin and bones" architecture.
Born Ludwig Mies, he added the van der and his mother's maiden name, Rohe, perhaps to hide his humble roots as a tradesman's son, who began his career in his father's stone-carving shop, and had no formal training.這是巴塞羅那標誌性地位的椅子，它在巴塞羅那黃頁上有自己的頁面。 不僅如此，它是最古老的現代經典之一。 它是1929年德國設計師Ludwig Mies van der Rohe為西班牙皇室設計的。 Mies眾所周知的被認為是現代家具的先驅。 他的風格是簡潔的線條，他使用現代材料，如不銹鋼和玻璃在他的建築上，他稱之為“皮膚和骨頭”的建築。 Born Ludwig Mies，他補充了van der和他母親的婚前名字Rohe，他隱藏自己是一個石匠的兒子，他在父親的石雕店開始他的職業生涯，沒有正規的訓練。
He came up with a set of pioneering designs in the search for a style that would be suitable for the modern industrial age. While many of his ideas remained unbuilt, in 1929 he was asked to design the German Pavilion for the Barcelona Exposition. As part of his design (a replica of which stands on the site today), he made two chairs for King Alfonso XIII and his wife, Ena, in case they required a rest while visiting. According to the aforementioned Yellow Pages, Mies drew his inspiration from an Egyptian folding chair and a Roman folding stool. It was supposed to bring to mind a throne. Unfortunately the royal couple never sat in the pavilion.
他在尋找適合現代工業風格途中想出了一套開創性的設計。 雖然他的許多想法仍然沒有實踐，在1929年，他被要求為巴塞羅那博覽會設計德國館。 作為他的設計的一部分（今天在網站上的副本），他為國王阿方索十三和他的妻子Ena做了兩把椅子。 根據前面提到的黃頁，Mies從埃及折疊椅和羅馬折疊凳引出了他的靈感。 它應該是一個寶座。 不幸的是，皇家夫婦從來沒有坐在椅子上。
The following year, he was appointed director of the Bauhaus school until 1933, when it was shut by the Nazis. Four years later he moved to the United States and eventually became an American citizen. He designed several high-rise buildings there, from the Chicago twin towers to the Seagram in New York. He was also asked to design the new national gallery for Berlin, and while he visited several times during its construction he never went back to live in Germany.
第二年，他被任命為包豪斯學校的導演，直到1933年，當它被納粹關閉。 四年後，他搬到美國，最終成為美國公民。 他在那裡設計了幾個高層建築，從芝加哥雙塔到紐約的Seagram。 他還被要求為柏林設計新的國家畫廊，雖然他在建設期間訪問過幾次，他從來沒有回到過德國。
In 1950, Mies redesigned his old Barcelona chair using modern techniques which allowed the frame to be moulded from a single piece of stainless steel rather than being bolted together. The original pigskin seat was replaced with cow leather.
The chair was taken up by Knoll, who still produce it to this day.
While it is a mass-produced item, the upholstery consists of 40 individual panels from a single hide, so it has the qualities of a hand-made piece, which is now selling at HK$ 4,990.
