TUC Community Furniture Project
The TUC commissioned JPA Furniture to refurbish its landmark London offices in Great Russell Street, WC1. The Brief for this innovative project was to achieve zero furniture waste and measurable community impact by re-homing any furniture still "fit for task" via JPA’s 360° complete furniture solution.JPA Furniture was required to maximise redundant furniture via a combination of local re-homing or, recycling for materials recovery (diverting from landfill) as a tangible demonstration of the TUC’s commitment to the environment and the community.....
The JPA 100 Chair Challenge is an excellent idea to not only reduce waste and environmental footprint, but also to take part in supporting someone else in the local community. We look forward to (hopefully) being able to support the next one.
Director, Electric Blue
“We were delighted that JPA Furniture was interested in our project and quickly realised that there were ways we could work together. Our Ethos is very much about maximising the potential of spaces and likewise, JPA maximising the life and use of furniture, so it was a great fit. It was a bonus to find they operated in Camden and so locality has worked in our favour. It has been fantastic to have them supported and we’re delighted with the result.”

Oaklands Second Life Art
JPA Furniture has been working with Oaklands College Art Department
as part of their DODO unwanted furniture re-homing project.
Unwanted furniture items from JPA’s ‘One in One out’ furniture recycling scheme is providing valuable raw materials for the art students at Oaklands College at zero cost – and just look at the results.
Methodist Church Pew Project
A chance meeting at Sustainable St Albans week brought JPA Furniture into contact with the MRMC Team, which in turn led to the Pews to Go 2017 project as part of a grand refurbishment scheme. The 27 beautiful oak and elm pews dating from 1815 had to be cleared in order to make way for newer, more flexible seating which would allow the building to become a community multi-space venue.
1000 Candle Challenge
JPA Furniture joined forces with a local candle making expert to raise money for Isabel Hospice. A 1000 Candle Challenge was set and a portion, of the profits, of all candles sold, was donated to Isabel hospice.
The judges said they could tangibly feel in JPA Furniture an inherent "can do" culture that permeated all aspects of their business whether dealing with customers, employees or the wider community. They demonstrated a strong family ethos that cascaded into all of those areas whether looking commercially or compassionately. In particular, the breadth and depth of their Corporate Social Responsibility program were most impressive, focusing on engaging with many aspects of the local area and having a used furniture recycling program that is an integral part of their business to any potential customer.
