Cisco Home Donates More Than 100 Trees

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Cisco Home is proud to announce the donation and funding of over 100 trees to be planted in urban environments throughout Los Angeles urban areas. As part of their partnership with Tree Musketeers, the sustainable design brand pledged to donate one tree for every dining table sold during their Annual Dining Promotion, which ended on December 1st, for the charity’s tree planting event.

The tree planting event is being organized by Tree Musketeers. It will take place on March 7, 2015, and include hundreds of volunteers, including local kids, planting and caring for trees along Imperial Highway between El Segundo and LAX.
 

Cisco Pinedo, Founder of Cisco Home commented, “We are thrilled to partner with Tree Musketeers and to be able to donate 102 trees – one for each of our tables sold during November. Planting a tree for each product sold is something we have done in the past and it is amazing to be able to continue our commitment to the environment through the partnership with Tree Musketeers.”

Pasadena's Holiday Look in Home Tour

Monday, November 24, 2014

If you're like 99% of Americans, you like to know what it looks like inside your neighbors home. "What does their kitchen look like? What stereo equipment are they watching the game on? Are their mojito parties better set up than mine?" If you're not, then you should probably quit reading this...just kidding! You should still read this and go and help a good cause. The annual Holiday Look In Home Tour delivers visual delights and this year will be no exception! From tantalizing to elegant, inventive to endearing, this  enormously popular event has become an anticipated community celebration, offering visitors a chance to view four distinctive homes in the Pasadena area, decorated for the holiday season by prominent floral designers. 

This year’s designers include Drew Domenghini, Margit Holakoui, Ixora Floral Studio, and Jacob Maarse. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through these architecturally distinctive homes festively adorned for your viewing pleasure. Take advantage of this opportunity to get an early start on your holiday shopping as well! They are going to have a boutique set up, offering unique selections of gift items that appeal to all tastes and budgets.


Proceeds from this event support the Pasadena Symphony and POPS annual concert series, as well as the educational outreach and community engagement programs such as the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra, Pasadena Young Musicians Orchestra, and Pasadena All-City Orchestra. These programs continually offer robust musical training and personal development for young musicians throughout the San Gabriel Valley, fostering music appreciation and aptitude in future generations..

Susie Bakes Saturdays

Saturday, November 22, 2014
Holidays are coming, holidays have gone and we just want to drink them all up in whatever red paper cup our local green apron-wearing barista gives us.  However, since bank accounts don't always allow us to consume soy-peppermint-white-mochas on a daily basis, we must resort to baking to get into the holiday cheer (while listening to Bing Crosby croon about Frost the Snowman no less) So here is a simple, classic chocolate chip cookie recipe to get us into the holiday spirit!

IMG_6318
Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Ingredients:
 1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:
1. set your little tikes oven to 350*
2. mix all the best ingredients together; white & brown sugar and butter. Get those nice and creamy and then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the vanilla…add a little extra if you’re feeling spunky.
3. mix the dry ingredients together; flour, baking soda, salt
4. combine the dry into the wet slowing making sure that everything is nice and combined.
5. throw in those chips and nuts
6. now plop a good size spoonfull of batter on ungreased cookie sheets and make sure to give them plenty of space. These cookies expand and they do not like to be touched by other cookies!
7. let them brown in your oven for about 10 minutes 
8. let them cool a bit on the sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack
9. eat.

Refinery29: The Most Beautiful New Stores In L.A.

Wednesday, November 19, 2014
Our newest Cisco Home store at SOCO was included in Refinery29's "Most Beautiful New Stores in L.A.":

"We can't say anything about Cisco Home's new store without first mentioning its size. At 8,000 square feet, it's a space you could quite literally get lost in. And, considering we've been longtime fans of the made-in-L.A., eco-friendly furniture company, this news is pretty much music to our ears. Go check it out — you'll find us wandering in the back. Oh, by the way, there's also a working, antique carousel in the middle of the store."

Fall Dining Event!

Monday, October 20, 2014

“Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile."
 
William Cullen Bryant

 

And what better way to send it off than with the loveliest of dining rooms!

 

Last weekend we kicked off our 6 week Dining Tables and Chairs Promotion! We are doing 20% off of all dining tables (including Tarracea) and chairs and right now in Pasadena we have several dining room tables and chairs in stock and ready for the holidays! If you're not quiet sure what will work for your space, Susie and Amanda are here to help! We offer in-home interior design services in Pasadena to make sure your new pieces fit your space perfectly.

 

In addition to our sale, we have partnered up with Tree Musketeers and are committed to planting a tree in California for every dining table we sell! Not familiar with Tree Musketeers you say? Well, here are a few fun facts about this amazing company:

Tree Musketeers is based in El Segundo, California. They were the first youth-led environmental organization and have received numerous prestigious awards over the years including from 3 U.S. Presidents! Tree Musketeers currently has 1,800 local trees in its care. Once the trees are at maturity, they will remove 88 tons of pollution from the air each year. On a global basis, more than 1,914,066 trees by 1,047,361 young people have been planted under Tree Musketeers programs during the past 15 years.Your impact will be made by planting tree's locally in California. For more information you can visit their website at: http://treemusketeers.org/

"TREE MUSKETEERS has a vision in which children all over the world are planting trees and becoming leaders of social change. With full knowledge that one person, no matter how small, can make a difference, they are united in action to ensure a healthy future for Earth and themselves. Altering the course of global warming is a huge challenge and planting trees is a meaningful solution to this problem. Help the environment! Plant a tree in a metropolitan area in the US."

 

So let’s give thanks for good people doing good things and with a new dining room table to entertain those good people!

Chemical-Free Furniture

Tuesday, February 26, 2013


In support of HB 1294 and Chemical-Free furniture.

There has been a lot of info and discussion in the news lately about Chlorinated Tris and  Technical Bulletin 117. TB 117 is an outdated list of requirements regulating the flammability standards of materials used in upholstered furniture. In short, it requires the use of a very toxic chemical treatment on cushions and filling materials in order to make furniture less flammable. The irony is that the supposedly ‘helpful’ chemicals required by TB 117 not only poison our environment and families, but have been linked to cancer, learning disorders, and reduced fertility. Recent tests have also shown that these chemicals become more flammable over time as they break down.

Senator Sharon Nelson proposed an act to modify TB 117 (SB5181, the Toxic-Free Kids and Families Act), but it was shut down by the Senate Energy and Environment Committee. Now, a House version of the bill (HB1294) is making it’s way through the committee, hopefully and eventually making it through the Senate.

Cisco is passionate about the safety and health of our families and planet. We are strongly in favor of this new bill, and the lifting of the legislation that requires the unnecessary use of toxic chemicals in our homes. As longtime supporters of chemical-free furniture manufacturing, we have invested countless hours and dollars finding and perfecting new building techniques that allow us to craft safe, comfortable, naturally fire-retardant furniture without using any of these harmful pollutants. Our [Inside Green]® technology was designed expressly for this purpose. By using organic wools, cottons, latex, and other natural ingredients, Cisco can build furniture that will add beauty to your home, not dangerous chemicals and gasses.

What is "organic" furniture, and why is it important?

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

The dictionary defines organic as: relating to, or derived from living organisms, simple, healthful, close to nature, relating to or affecting organs or an organ of the body


Cisco's Acacia chair planted with herbs.


We’ve all come to understand and appreciate these terms when relating to food and medicine, but the same principles and awareness are rarely placed on the furniture that we fill our homes with. The beds we sleep on, the couches and sofas that our children play on, even the dining table that we eat at are commonly made with chemicals and materials that are harmful to our health and ecosystem. Our goal is to build furniture that is made from only the finest organic and sustainable sources, and is free of pesticides and chemicals. Cisco works exclusively with vendors who practice humane and fair trade business, and is extremely selective when it comes to choosing materials that offer the most in both style and comfort.

Cisco strives to create high-quality, comfortable, beautiful furniture, while honoring and protecting our planet and our families. We take every step to ensure that all of our products benefit our customers and our environment in as many ways as possible. Every aspect of the construction, sourcing, design and shipping is researched and taken into consideration when we introduce a new product. By using Natural Latex, organic wool, goose feathers and down, and properly stained FSC® woods, Cisco offers the peace of mind that the furniture you own is not only the best looking and feeling, but the best for your health and family.


In the upcoming weeks, we'll be sharing articles, information and links to help you understand how and why we choose to work with organic and sustainable materials.

Fire-retardant law's back draft

Friday, November 30, 2012

  • The same warning label used since 1975 is visible on the bottom of a desk chair at the home Judy Levin, in Oakland, Ca., on Friday June 22, 2012. California has the opportunity to set the tone for a new national furniture fire-safety standard to replace the state's decades-old requirement that had led to the use of toxic flame retardants in couches, chairs and baby product sold throughout North America.

    The same warning label used since 1975 is visible on the bottom of a desk chair at the home Judy Levin, in Oakland, Ca., on Friday June 22, 2012. California has the opportunity to set the tone for a new national furniture fire-safety standard to replace the state's decades-old requirement that had led to the use of toxic flame retardants in couches, chairs and baby product sold throughout North America. Photo: Michael Macor, The Chronicle / SF

 

Talk about unintended consequences: A 1975 law that was designed to keep Californians safe from furniture fires is exposing us to potentially dangerous levels of toxic chemicals.

One study by UC Berkeley and Duke researchers released this week adds to the growing body of evidence that toxic or untested fire retardants have become commonplace in American couches - most likely a response to a California law that requires furniture foam to endure an open flame for 12 seconds without catching fire. It's the only such law in the nation, but the size of the state's market - and the cost and complication of altering a product for a single state - effectively make it a national standard.

Another study found significant amounts of potentially hazardous chemicals in 13 of the 16 Northern California homes it tested. The substances identified in the two studies have been linked to cancer, DNA changes, lowered IQ, hormone disruption, decreased fertility and hyperactivity.

Worse yet, even the most diligent consumers might not be able to determine which chemicals are in the furniture they buy, and at what level. That information generally is kept sealed as a trade secret.

These studies should add a sense of urgency to Gov. Jerry Brown's order for a revision of the 37-year-old standard. For years, the California Legislature had wrestled with a bill to outlaw certain fire retardants of concern, but the chemical industry always prevailed, even though some firefighters were among the most vigorous advocates of change. Their concern: The benefits of flame-resistant foam were more than offset by the elevated hazards of toxic smoke from a house fire.

A revision of the 1975 regulation, expected to take effect next year, could not come soon enough. It must include not only new restrictions on toxic chemicals, but clear disclosure for consumers.

HOUSE BEAUTIFUL'S NEWELL TURNER RALLIES FOR AMERICAN FURNITURE

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

HOUSE BEAUTIFUL'S NEWELL TURNER RALLIES FOR AMERICAN FURNITURE

Photo courtesy of House Beautiful

Home decor arrives on Capitol Hill Tuesday, when Newell Turner, editor-in-chief of House Beautiful, and Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) will hold a Washington press conference to encourage consumers to buy American-made home products in order to stimulate the economy and boost job growth.

Though 227,000 jobs were added to the economy in February,according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the national unemployment rate still stands at a staggering 8.3 percent. Turner, Hagan and leading members of the furniture manufacturing industry hope to expand the American-made home furnishings business to create more U.S. jobs. Worldwide, home decor is a multibillion-dollar market.

The domestic furniture industry itself is relatively small, but Hagan says it has a notable impact on American jobs, especially in her home state of North Carolina.

"Our state has a rich history in the furniture industry, and I am working to do everything I can to support and keep those jobs here in America," Hagan tells Stylelist Home in an email. "Many Americans buy American products as a way to support our economy as it recovers, and furniture is no exception."

"There's no better time than ever to promote American industries," Turner says. Moreover, he adds, "There's nothing more important than creating a home that makes you feel good and safe."

To strengthen his call for American support of domestic products, Turner is planning to discuss the findings of a new survey conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs, which questioned 1,000 adults about their furniture preferences and shopping habits. Some 91 percent of participants said they would choose to buy American-made furniture over products manufactured abroad. However, almost half of those surveyed either had recently bought foreign-made products or were unsure of their purchased item's origin. These findings suggest there is huge potential for growth for the American furniture industry.

With international retailers like IKEA offering competitive low prices, we understand why buyers might still opt for non-American-made products. Plus, international retailers employ a substantial number of U.S. workers. But Turner says there are affordable options made right here in the United States.

Additionally, there is the "strong unquestioning level of quality" of American furniture ensured by federal safety regulations, Turner argues, noting that even the Chinese want American-made furniture "because they know the quality is guaranteed."

If the quality and accessibility of American furniture have not persuaded you, there's also the environment to consider. "From a green perspective, you're lowering the carbon footprint of things," Turner says because U.S.-made furniture doesn't have to travel as far to your home.

Turner's efforts for American-made furniture don't end with the Tuesday press conference. The April issue of House Beautiful features the growing furniture and design sector in Southern California, with brands likeCisco BrothersElite Leather and William Haines Designs (the company founded by a former silent movie actor) shipping products across the country.

Although we agree that buying American-made anything is important to our economy, we believe the largest obstacle to buying locally remains the price. Budget is often the single biggest factor when it comes to choosing furniture. So although we may want the gorgeous coffee table handcrafted in California and made with locally harvested wood, if our budget doesn't allow it, we may just stick to our $20 Ikea Lack table ... for now.

Furniture Fresh from South Central L.A.

In our October 2011 issue we're spotlighting all of our favorite American-made design. To lend a hand, we've asked Michael and Ruth Storc of the great site Design Patriot to share their top Made in the USA finds with us. This week, they spotlight Cisco Home, a sustanable furniture company based in South Central Los Angeles.

 

When he was in his early twenties, Cisco Pinedo began making custom furniture for his neighbors out of his home garage in South Central Los Angeles. As his business grew, he started buying abandoned buildings on an industrial strip of Western Avenue in the downtrodden neighborhood where he started. Cisco Home still makes all their upholstered goods, case goods, and their welded and hand-blown glass lighting in Los Angeles (under the name Cisco Brothers), employing over 100 workers in their factories alone. Every item in the huge range of stylish pieces is made with an eye on sustainability and green practices.

California Look: Chairs by Gregg Fleishman, Cisco, Sidecar, Marmol Radziner

The California Look poll, Round 8: Indoor chairs

These days, how a chair is made can be just as important as how it looks. We continue our California Look 2011 poll by asking you to consider these four California designs. Vote for your favorite and tell us why you think it speaks to the idea of modern living. 

And the nominees are ...

Gregg Fleishman Lumberest chairA. Gregg Fleishman's Lumberest dining chair. Culver City architect Fleishman, no stranger to L.A. at Home, uses interlocking parts to create a chair that is cut from a single piece of 4-by-8-foot laminated plywood, reducing waste. It ships flat and unfolds for use. The intricately patterned design provides a springy seat and back for comfort. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cisco Home chairB. Katso from Cisco Home. Talk about modern times. The Los Angeles firm has made an admirable attempt to keep manufacturing local and in many ways symbolizes the challenges facing the furniture industry. Locally made, the Katso stool is a wonderful example of fashionable industrial design: a tractor-style seat carved from solid wood and set on a steel base. 

 

 

 

 

 

Maria BackC. The Maria chair from Sidecar Furniture in the Highland Park neighborhood of L.A. Owner David Johnson not only designed the chair but also builds them himself. He uses "urban forested" walnut for a frame constructed with mortise and tenon joinery, and he weaves the cane seat and back by hand. The result is exceptionally strong and stylish -- an example of classic craftsmanship that we think speaks to the desire for handmade work in a manufactured-in-China world.

 

00D. The dining chair from Marmol Radziner. The Los Angeles architecture firm's achievements include the restoration of Richard's Neutra's Kaufmann house in Palm Springs, the design and production of prefab homes and a line of furniture. The firm's Dining Group has a strong architectural presence and is made to order from solid walnut or maple. 

 

Which should take the throne? Cast your ballot below. We'll close voting in this category in three days, so share your opinion now about which chair best captures the spirit of home design today.

Dwell on eco-luxe green living

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Dwell on Design showed a range of green living design options — from energy-efficient LED lamps to gorgeously green modular homes.

Mon, Jun 27 2011 at 2:50 PM EST

Dwell on DesignPhoto: Siel Ju
To get a sense of how chic and fabulous a greener lifestyle can look today, you need only attend Dwell on Design. The West Coast's biggest design event took over a chunk of the Los Angeles Convention Center last weekend to showcase the latest in great design — much of it sustainable, green, and enviably beautiful.
 
Ecofabulous MODERN LIVING Showhouse at Dwell on Design 2011 in Los Angeles
 
Case in point: The Ecofabulous MODERN LIVING Showhouse, which tricked out one ofpieceHomes' eco-friendly modular houses with gorgeous sustainable furniture, energy-efficient appliances, and other green living accoutrements — down to pretty tableware made from natural and reclaimed materials!
 
Ecofabulous MODERN LIVING Showhouse at Dwell on Design 2011 in Los Angeles
 
If you saw the showhouse and want to live in it, you can actually own it — if you're the highest eBay bidder! The home will be auctioned off, so get your bids in between July 5 and 15 — with the extra bonus being that what you pay for the house will be donated to Global Green USA.
 
Cisco Homes at Dwell on Design 2011 in Los Angeles
 
Attendees also got to sit on Cisco Homes' sustainable furniture, look at big, all-paper structures from molo, learned about the humanitarian work of Architecture for Humanity, snapped up energy-efficient LED lamps from Koncept, and heard from speakers and panelists about green consumerism, eco-friendly design, sustainable transportation, and many other pressing green topics.

Expect to hear more about Dwell on Design in the coming days from MNN's Home blogger Matt Hickman, who hit the show on Friday, when author of "Cradle to Cradle" William McDough gave his keynote!

If you're willing to go off the beaten path at High Point, you find the best stuff. A few minutes from town, in an old mill, is the showroom for Cisco Brothers, from Los Angeles. A favorite with designers and ABC Home, Cisco Pineda and his family, have an amazing space and touch with furniture, all of which is made in LA in a sustainable, local way. Check these pics out!

Pop 5: Eco Shopping in San Francisco

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Pop 5: Eco Shopping in San Francisco

For our newly minted Pop 5 list, we've found the five best places in San Francisco for eco-minded shopping. Thanks to everyone who chimed in with suggestions; we even got some great spots to visit in the East Bay now. In honor of Earth Day this Friday, here are the five best places to shop for eco-friendly goods in SF.

  1. For fashion: Eco Citizen Boutique (2255 Polk St., 415-614-0100) This stylish stop carries fair trade and organic fashions from labels like Prairie Underground and Marais shoes. Better yet, the new-ish space on Polk is actually next door to an eco dry cleaner.
  2. For furniture: Cisco Home (580 Hayes St., 415-436-0131) Specializing in eco-friendly furniture from names like Epoch, John Derian, and Habita, Cisco (pictured) is the ultimate destination for sustainable (if aspirational) pieces.
  3. For jewelry: Manika Jewelry (11 Maiden Lane, 415-399-1990) An alternative to its more traditional Union Square neighbors, Manika carries work by many artisans who work in eco-friendly gold and silver that's reclaimed rather than mined, and the boutique contributes a percentage of sales to local and international charities.
  4. For books and gifts: Green Arcade (680 Market St., 415-431-6800) When I first heard about Green Arcade, I thought, how can they fill a whole store with eco-topical books? The answer: by expanding the definition of eco to include natural and local history, travel and lifestyle guides, even mushroom foraging how-tos, plus a selection of stylish gifts.
  5. For everything else: Branch (345 Ninth St., Ste. 202, 415-626-1012) Even if it weren't earth-friendly, Branch would be one of the best boutiques in town. This gifting haven carries eco accessories, home accents, kitchenware and tabletop items, bed, bath, and baby products, and much more.

Cisco Home has a similar philosophy as we do - sustainability being their standard.

They continue to be a leader, making beautiful creations that are also responsibly made.

While crusing by one of their stores recently, we caught a glimpse at their store window.

It bared our name. And made us blush...maybe even swoon for a second.

Cisco Home: Sustainable Furniture


082510CiscoHome_Logo.jpg

Cisco Home, where do I start? I could have stayed in their store all day admiring their unique furniture and furnishings such as the iron strap chandelier and glass jug lamps. Their furniture is known for their quality of materials and construction, which was evident when I tried to shift some of the furniture and needed a little help.

WEEKEND PHOTO: TIME FOR A BRIGHT IDEA!

Photo by Coco of Cococozy


I took this photo at Cisco Home in Brentwood awhile back. A blue glass jug pendant light and a large clock side by side.

I happened upon this photo in my archives yesterday and thought that this would make the perfect weekend photo.

Love the idea of time and light side by side...something metaphorical about this photo. The light symbolizes bright ideas and inspiration to me. The clock is a manifestation of the saying carpe diem (seize the day). Time does not stop so go pursue your bright ideas and your inspiration now.

Tomorrow, I'll write about nonsensical things that happen to me, dilemmas on how I couldn't buy something that I wanted, or some bad t.v. show...don't worry...you haven't lost the good old Coco...this post is just an aside.

Happy Sunday!

Stores we love: Cisco Home

Jump to Comments

Looking to buy furniture in the SF Bay Area? It’s just not that easy, is it? (And that’s even if you’re working with a designer).

There are the stores that do traditional, vintage, antique and all the wannabes in that genre. There are stores that do b-a-s-i-c modern (zzzz…). There are the stores that worship at the alter of Mid Century (ditto). There are stores that do clean, modern, minimalist Italian/French/Scandinavian (or aspire to). And let’s not even talk about that big warehouse of a store in Emeryville.

How ’bout some personality? Well, it took an LA store opening a high-profile retail branch here, but we think we’ve finally found it. The name’s Cisco. Cisco Home.

Where to start? It’s just great to look at…and you instantly feel good when you walk in. The look? Quintessential Californian. Laid-back, comfortable. Sophisticated, but organic-sexy. A little whimsical, a little flair, particularly in the form of vintage-like lighting (awesome, awesome lighting) and accessories. Sumptuous but not over-voluptuous. Scaled just right. The lines are moderned-up classic, with unexpected textures (think denim on a riff of a classic winged side chair). The shapes are strong, but don’t scream “look at me.” People coming to your home might actually want to look at you, you interesting, self-assured creature. Oh now there’s a concept.

The furniture would fit anywhere: Loft, Mediterranean, Victorian, Edwardian, Eichler, Craftsman, Mountain Cabin, even a Contempolonial (the name my friend Wendy Tabot gives to tract homestyle)….pretty much anything you’d find in these parts. And it won’t look generic. Crazy, but true. And, according to Cisco’s Robert Pintozzi (ex-Filamento and Mike, if you remember those fabulous, dearly departed stores), it’s furniture that also manages to bridge the gender and style divide. “Couples walk out of here happy. It’s a great thing to watch people start to trust and relax and have fun.”

And, if you don’t see what you want on the floor or on their website? There’s always the custom option. (They have in-house designers, too, if your head starts to spin.)

Then, of course, there’s the commitment to sustainable, natural construction. The company is FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified. The wood comes from sustainable resources. The upholstery is organic, grown without pesticides. You get the idea. Check out the site (www.ciscohome.net) for more detail.

And finally, there’s the commitment to craft and the people behind it (all in LA). It gives the furniture warmth, a little soul, and makes it all more human. And you know we love that.

Integrity. Great style. (And in the scheme of things, affordability.) It’s about time.

Cisco Brothers – Sustainable Luxury



The last company I’ll be showing you in this series of beautiful, sustainable and long lasting furniture is Cisco Brothers.  Based in LA, Cisco Brothers was founded by Cisco Pinedo, a furniture designer with an impressive commitment to quality and to the environment.  In fact, he has been making furniture for 20 years now and was the first to create 100% sustainable furniture furniture.  Here’s how: wood furniture and frames are FSC® certified (Forest Stewardship Council), adhesives are water based, and there are a variety of green cushion options including natural latex, down, feather or soy-based foams.  Upholstered items are made with natural and organic fabrics (which as I’ll describe in later posts, are not the same).  In addition, in an industry where many factories have been moved to China, Cisco Brothers furniture is proudly made in California.   For those of you who live in New York like me, fortunately you can find his beautiful furniture at ABC Home.

What I love about this furniture is its casual elegance.  Each piece is totally understated but the clean lines and unique design touches mean that they’ll be pieces you’ll love forever.

Since it would take pages for me to post every single piece of beautiful piece of furniture they make, you’ll have to jump to their website to take a look.  But I will leave you with a few shots of the interior of their showroom and some of their newer introductions.  Enjoy!

I love the combination of the crisp white sofa and modern lines of the chairs together with the rustic root sculpture

This is a perfect sectional to curl up on and watch a movie

This is a wonderful glamorous take on a traditional English sofa.  And as you’ll soon learn, I’m a huge fan of anything with nailheads on it!

These beds are beautiful.  I may have found the perfect bed for my bedroom!

Here’s a great view of their High Point Showroom.  You can see how big it is and how many different pieces of furniture they have.  I’ll be following up with a post on Cisco Pinedo’s house in later posts.  Suffice it to say, that his home is just as beautiful as his furniture.

Green + Vine; New Eco Luxury Living @ W Hollywood Residence (Part 1/5)

Monday, 10 May 2010 12:35 by May

Welcome to the W Hollywood Hotel and Residence, a newly constructed Eco Luxury Living for the green and gorgeous celebrity you! Featuring interview with Scott Rynders, VP of Gatehouse Capital and take a closer look at one of their unique model home Green + Vine with Nicole Landers, Sustainability Consultant of econnect grp. 

 

(Photo by Tim Street Porter)

 

econnect grp and Van Patter Design bring a new vision of eco-luxury living to the heart of Hollywood: VINE+GREEN, created exclusively for the W Hollywood Residence. VINE+GREEN was born from the W Hollywood Hotel and Residences’ vaunted LEED certification, the largest to date in Southern California.  Perched twelve floors high above the corner of Hollywood and Vine, the one bedroom residence enjoys inspired south facing views, making “green”, breathless. This eco haven combines urban loft sensibilities with an environmental theme that primarily utilizes local (from within a 500-mile radius) eco-manufacturers and artisans – qualifications compliant for LEED regional materials.

Topping the list of our eco-urban luxe collaboration is Cisco Home, an eco furniture designer; todosomething, artisans with a purpose; a new outdoor lifestyle line, HOM Escape in Style by Cisco Brothers; and LED HD flat screens from LG. To organize the space we incorporated The Container Store’s sustainable selections, Royal-Pedic’s organic mattress, LED custom light fixture with IOS LED 6W bulbs and Union Eighteen’s floor coverings made from recycled carpet remnants. Also featured in our urban sanctuary is Animavi’s new concept in refined, urban lounging, as well as exterior foliage design by Inner Gardens. You’ll find these and countless other uncommon offerings in this sanctuary amidst the clouds. Witness, our branding partner, developed the brand concept for this eco-luxe, urban home- VINE+GREEN.

Cisco Brothers: Stylish Sustainable Furniture & Lighting - The Best of High Point Market Spring 2010

Friday, April 23, 2010
The gigantic Cisco Brothers showroom was one of my favorite stops at High Point. A former pantyhose factory outside of the center of town, the showroom is the perfect showplace for the Los Angeles-based company's collection — an artfully industrial backdrop for the entire range of sustainable furnishings that are made in LA.
 
 

Founder Cisco Pinedo was the first to create 100% FSC®-certified furniture — and they continue to improve upon that foundation:
• water based glues
• natural latex, down, feathers, or soy-based foam cushion options
• vegetable dyed leather
• made in Los Angeles

CISCO BROTHERS MUST-SEES
• Raw-edge leather slipcovers
• raw-edge leather chairs with nailhead trim
• new lighting collection
• extensive range of ottoman poufs

Lighting: Handblown Glass Pendants from Cisco Brothers

When I visited the new Cisco Home Studio in San Francisco last week, I was immediately drawn to the hand-blown glass pendant lights in jewel-like colors.

Shopper's Diary: Cisco Home Opens in San Francisco

From Janet

This past Saturday, LA-based furniture makers Cisco Brothers opened a retail showroom in the happening Hayes Street shopping district in San Francisco. The tidy white storefront opens into a wonderfully airy space filled with Cisco's Belgian-linen-upholstered furniture, John Derian's line of elegant, small-scale furniture, and Cisco's own line of glass pendant lighting. Cisco's 100 percent FSC Pure sustainable upholstered furniture is made with FSC pure certified woods and water-based glues and the company's casegoods are made with reclaimed hardwoods.

Cisco Brothers Sustainable Furniture

2-19-2008cisco.jpg
Driving through the Potrero Hill neighborhood in San Francisco this weekend, we saw a billboard for Cisco Brothers Furniture. We're always on the lookout for green furniture, so when we saw the word "sustainable" somewhere in the text of the ad, we looked a little closer and made a mental note to check the website when we got home.

Cisco Pinedo + Cisco Brothers

Cisco Pinedo + Cisco Brothers

A couple of years ago I bartered with an interior designer client — my graphic design for two of her Cisco Brothers’ chairs. The beauty and comfort of those chairs made me an instant fan. Then I kept noticing blurbs about Cisco popping up in my favorite magazines... Exquisite, sweatshop-free craftsmanship, devotion to South Central LA neighborhood development, serious commitment to sustainability. I was am impressed. 

Cisco Brothers’ founder, Cisco Pinedo, arrived here at age 13 from Jalisco, Mexico. He learned to upholster furniture as a teenager and fell in love with the craft. Today, Cisco has a handful of retail showrooms including a design gallery at ABC Home Furnishings in NYC. Pinedo’s belief is that furniture should be made around the owner’s needs and that it should last a lifetime.

Here are photos of Cisco Pinedo’s home. The house is all about gathering. It’s a place to welcome friends and hang with family. Several walls were removed for a more open layout. Loads of crisp white combined with natural wood. It’s a peaceful interior, an extremely personal space, and very warm and comfortable.

Anyone who has visited a Cisco Brothers showroom knows that you don’t have to sacrifice style for sustainable furniture. From unique shapes, surprising textures, and bold colors, Cisco Brothers furniture is designed to inspire while blending with how people live. Hear from founder Cisco Pinedo about his design philosophy (and check out some fabulous blue chairs!)

Not only is Cisco Brothers furniture about great style, but it is also designed with sustainability in mind. They use Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood in their upholstery frames and wood furniture. Cisco offers a variety of cushion options that incorporate natural latex, down, feathers, or soy-based foams. And they use water based glues. Environmental impacts are an integral part of their design process. Take a look at some of their great products.

Cisco Brothers — Inside Green™

Cisco Brothers "Inside Green" Couch, inside view.In the fall of 2003 Rowena Finegan, owner and founder of Eco-terric, approached Cisco Pinedo, owner of Cisco Brothers Corporation, a furniture manufacturer in Los Angeles, California, with the idea of producing a totally clean and healthy line of furniture. After two and a half years of collaboration, Cisco Brothers was excited to share this first step in providing sustainable furniture for people who live responsibly and who are committed to protecting our planet—the Inside Green line. This has been a natural progression for Cisco Brothers, a company that has always been socially responsible, providing employment through apprenticeship programs to underdeveloped communities in South Los Angeles since the early 1990s.
