New Furniture

​JPA source and specify new furniture from trusted and robust supply chains with products that have proven credential such as ecolabels, certified timber, low VOCs and EPDs.  Suppliers are audited against a range of social, environmental and economic factors to ensure best practice and compliance.

In addition, we try to source locally where possible, bringing together local workshops and manufacturing partners who reflect our own values and those of our clients, encouraging collaboration and innovation.

JPA provide support, due diligence and information gathering for projects where furniture is required to have impact for BREEAM, LEED, Ska and WELL.

2nd Life Furniture Supply

2nd life furniture prevents unnecessary virgin materials from being sourced for refurbishment works and is a great way to reduce furniture related project carbon. Savings can be measured and fed back into reporting plans.

We can provide high quality 2nd life furniture for all sizes of projects although more notice is often needed to meet your exact requirements.

2nd life furniture can be a badge of honour, worn with pride!

Furniture maintenance

We provide furniture maintenance services with contract frameworks ad as a stand-alone to extend furniture lifecycle and financial investment.

This is enabled by locality to our client base and or own highly skilled in-house fitting teams.   JPA provide a wide range of circular repair services which typically include the supply and fitting of spare parts, repairs, reupholstery, refreshing, replacement keys and locks etc., all designed to keep items in use for longer.

Contract furniture is made to last and can have several lifespans if maintained properly.  Benefits of this include less use of valuable natural resources, carbon savings and cost savings but also a way to show stakeholders how your organisation is contributing to climate change - we need to make re-use cool.

Furniture Reconfiguration Solutions

Furniture Reconfiguration

Sometimes you don’t need new furniture or all new furniture to freshen and re-invigorate your workspace layout. We can reconfigure the existing furniture into new designs and layouts which may now be more suitable as your workspace evolves, and then simply top up with the odd extra item from new or second life stock.

It’s amazing what can be achieved with the furniture you already have – you could even consider rotating it around the premises in order to give spaces a refurbished appearance. So before you go and order new, let’s see what can be done with the furniture you already have, you may be surprised.

Furniture Recycling

We provide a collection and recycling for unwanted or truly redundant furniture. This can be co-ordinated with the delivery and installation of new furniture or be provided as a stand-alone service. Either way, we ensure that nothing goes to landfill.

Furniture recycling is certificated showing saved volumes of landfill kg and CO2e which is reported back to stakeholders and interested parties.

Eliminating furniture landfill seamlessly improves the environmental performance, reducing air, land and water pollution, vermin and disease.

Furniture Rehoming

Contract furniture is made to last and is often still fit-for-task when no longer required, despite looking slightly worse for wear. Once furniture is collected by JPA it is signed over to us, and prior to recycling we do our best to re-home it locally, for free in the community.

We aim to rehome unwanted items in the community, transforming waste into a much welcomed asset, enhancing organisational social impact as well as saving carbon from unnecessary purchase of new.

This saves community organisations vital funds and freeing valuable monies to be spent elsewhere.

Do you deliver and install my furniture?

JPA deliver and fully install all furniture supplied, with our very own teams of fitters in easily recognisable red liveried vehicles. Our fitters are fully trained (and DBS checked for peace of mind) and will deliver and assemble your new furniture as part of the job, leaving it ready for you to use straight away. We’ll show you how it works just in case and then also remove any packaging materials for recycling, with nothing going to landfill.

Can you help me with planning my space?

Our design team can help you plan and furnish all types and sizes of workspace including fixed desks, hot desks, breakout and collaborative spaces, chill and café spaces, meeting and mixing spaces. We help you make the most of your space, dealing with all legislative and regulatory issues so you don’t have to, whilst creating effective, engaging areas for your teams to work, rest and play.

What if I need help after my furniture has been delivered?

Because we only sell products from robust, tried and tested manufacturers, we underwrite all factory warranties free of charge. We’re happy to work with your cleaning and maintenance teams to show them how to get the best from your furniture, and also to give product training and refresher training as needed. If hot desking means that someone else keeps adjusting your chair, you need to know how to re-set it to make it work for you and get comfy. We’re here to before, during and after furniture installation.

The good news is that JPA have an award-winning furniture collection, re-use and recycling programme already in place.

I need a chair for my home, can you supply it?

How can my office be more sustainable?

Better sustainability can be achieved by all organisations of all sizes. Firstly we can help by keeping the furniture you already have in use for longer, by repairing, refreshing and reupholstering it – we call this PROJECT DODO, preventing your old furniture from becoming extinct! Not only does this prevent furniture landfill, but it’s also a cheaper option than buying new and using more resources. We can also reconfigure your furniture, re-arranging it into different set-ups to suit changing workflow and business requirements

How do I know where my furniture comes from?

The furniture we supply is from ethical and sustainable sources – with materials from managed and renewable sources. Standard fabrics carry the EcoLabel. Our supply chain is checked against stringent criteria to also make sure that product manufacturers are actively promoting social welfare both internally and down their own supply chains. You can rely on JPA for quality, sustainability and long-term value.

What is PROJECT DODO?

JPA’s Project Dodo is our own award-winning furniture maximisation programme! We work with you to help your furniture last longer before you buy new, through repairs, refresh, reupholstery, reconfiguration or off-site relocation – there’s no excuse for single use! If you really can’t use it, we’ll simply collect it and try and rehome it in the community or recycle it for materials recovery. Either way, we make it easy for your organisation to reduce furniture waste and eliminate furniture landfill.

Do I have to dispose of the packaging?

No, the good news is that after unwrapping and assembling your furniture ready for use, we collect all the packaging and take it back to our warehouse for re-use or recycling.

Can you help me re-locate my office space?

We can dismantle, pack and move organisations of all types

Can you repair furniture?

We can certainly come out to have a look to see if we can repair existing furniture, or you can send us an image. We can then advise whether repairs would be cost effective and worth the investment.

A collection of happy clients

"We really appreciated JPA's involvement in Sustainable St Albans Week; it was brilliant to have a local business so involved, and show that sustainability can absolutely be combined with running a profitable business….As a local, family-owned firm, they are always thinking of ways to live their values through their work, and offer great customer service."

Sustainable St Albans Week

We have worked with Fiona, James and the team across various schemes, however one of the most exciting is the re-manufacture of end of what would normally be termed ‘end of life’ furniture. By providing such a forward thinking service, JPA are able to demonstrate reduced costs to the companies they are working with as well as genuinely supporting the green agenda by significantly reducing waste through their innovative approach to recycling and reuse ensure zero landfill impact. The Green Triangle are delighted to be involved in supporting JPA in pushing this scheme out to businesses and organisations across Hertfordshire and beyond and highly commend JPA for their approach to sustainability, carbon reduction and their push to become as environmentally friendly as possible!

The Green Triangle

I have worked with JPA Furniture on the IOE Level 4 & 5 Project and found them to be helpful, supportive and proactive. The project was initiated upon the Merger of IOE and UCL and was a politically sensitive project. JPA provided great service and helped harmonise the relationship between IOE and UCL estates by providing rapid response and excellent service. The project manager James and his team had a ‘can do’ attitude and nothing was too much trouble.
Great job!

Arcadis

Fiona was brilliant - we were looking to buy a few chairs to put on stage for our conference and she loaned us a couple of chairs and they were perfect - she deserves a big bonus!
