TY Fine Furniutre's Organic Solid Wood Handmade Furniture
Here at T.Y. Fine Furniture visitors often comment on how much they hear the words "organic" and how often we talk about health. In fact, we are one of very few furniture stores taking Organic seriously. You may notice that we carry a wide selection of organic mattresses and bedding. This is not a coincidence. When we opened our Columbus Ohio showroom, we wanted to represent a brand that went hand in hand with our ideals. For us, Organic has been a subtle set of decisions that we have consistently made since inception.
Tarik Yousef founded T.Y. Fine Furniture in the summer of 2004. Early on he experimented with endless numbers of finishes. Most were so toxic that it was hard to tolerate application of these chemicals and the process always seemed to strip the wood of its natural beauty and charm. All the hard work going into making a beautiful solid wood piece of bespoke furniture seemed to be wasted on common industry finishes.
It did not take long before Owner Tarik Yousef decided to take matters into his own hands. Enlisting the chemical expertise of his father Dr. Ahmed Yousef a Microbiologist at The Ohio State University, Tarik went out to create a Beautiful, Organic and Heirloom quality finish that would become the corner stone of his company. From there the perfect finish blend was born, it was an overnight success. In fact, once woodworkers got wind of this new creation, they started clamoring for the finish to be bottled for their own use!
These days, not much has changed. All the wood used in T.Y. Fine Furniture is selected from Naturally Fallen Trees, all coming from local Ohio Forests. The glues are age old milk based blends that are tested for food contact. And the finish remains as it has since its inception, Organic, Non toxic, zero VOC and Food Grade components.
At T.Y. Fine Furniture Organic Furniture is not about saying 'me too', it is an honest part of our core philosophy and founding principles. We do not want to provide you with furniture that we would not put in our own homes. We want to enjoy building furniture, even if it is a little harder or takes a little longer, and we definitely do not want to expose ourselves or others to Carcinogenic Chemicals.
As part of our commitment to building the highest quality Organic and Sustainable furniture using environmentally friendly practices, we have become certified by Green America and by the Sustainable Furnishings council.
