Protecting Your Health, Beautifying Your Life

At Phelan’s Interiors, we offer beautiful quality furniture at affordable prices. In fact, we offer the lowest price on all new furniture for the same brands, models, and items you find anywhere else. But we also take it a step further by customizing our offerings and partnering with companies who protect the environment, as well as your health.

Did you know cheap furniture–like pieces made from particle board–can release harmful emissions? The resin glue that binds wood products contains formaldehyde. Even at low levels, this gas can be harmful and can affect your eyes, nose, and respiratory system.

These volatile organic compounds–or VOC’s–have a direct impact on health, especially in indoor environments. Mass produced furniture is one of the culprits. New products can release a variety of compounds, including benzene, toluene, and ethyl benzene.

That’s why, at Phelan’s Interiors, we’re so pleased to work with sustainable companies. Among our many environmentally conscious companies, we’re proud of the work by Century, Craftmaster, and Norwalk.

Since 1947, Century Furniture has embraced intelligent design, conservation, and recycling. They build beautiful pieces meant to last for generations. In all they do, they consider the impact on the environment. From lighting to living room sets and and beds to benches, you’ll love the outstanding quality of every piece manufactured by this North Carolina company.

Committed to cleaner living, Craftmaster offers an EarthCare Inside program for all their North Carolina upholstered products. This program results in a much smaller carbon footprint. In addition, this quality furniture maker is a member of the American Home Furnishings Association (AHFA) and they rely on a stringent energy conservation plan.

For their part, Norwalk produces furniture without harmful chemicals by following California’s strict TB 117-2013 standard regarding fire retardants. They test all their products to guarantee you’ll have no harmful indoor emissions.

With Phelan’s, you know you’re getting only quality furniture. You also receive complimentary design services from our experienced interior designers. We’ve improved the interiors of hundreds of homes and commercial spaces. One of the ways we can change the look and feel of your home is through custom upholstery.

As you stroll through our gorgeous showroom, you’re only seeing a fraction of the possibilities. If you fall in love with a piece, but it just doesn’t fit your décor, we’ll have it custom upholstered to suit your needs.

From leather to linen and microsuede to mohair, we’ll never pull the wool over your eyes. Once you’ve chosen the material, we’ll help you choose the pattern too. Mad for plaid? Dreamy about damask? Flipping over floral? Or happy about houndstooth? Our expert designers will help you pull the entire look together.

Safe furniture, sustainable companies, and new looks through upholstery . . . just a few more reasons Phelan’s has been your preferred interior design expert for nearly 80 years. Stop in today and see how we can transform your home.
