A.R.T. Casegoods Collection Earns UL Stability Verification
“We are proud to be partnering with UL in offering our customers furniture that is, not only simply beautiful, but is a safe choice for them and their families,” said Adam Tilley, senior vice president of product and marketing for A.R.T.
Artiste is a new custom casegoods program that allows consumers to create fine furniture with thousands of potential combinations of styles, materials, details, and finishes.
Using a kiosk at participating retailers’ store, or working directly from a dedicated website or app, consumers can “build” their custom piece, which will be delivered in six weeks. All Artiste casegoods are made with double interior box case construction and ¾-inch solid back panels. Drawers have dovetail joints and under-mount guides.
“UL is pleased to work with A.R.T. Furnishings to design a custom testing program for the Artiste products,” said Alberto Uggetti, vice president and general manager, UL Environment. “By achieving UL Stability Verification, A.R.T. Furniture’s Artiste products have been tested above and beyond current industry standards. The UL Verification Mark demonstrates performance, authenticity, and quality.”
“Safety is our No. 1 priority and obtaining UL’s Stability Verification is another way we are ensuring that our products are safe in our customers’ homes,” added A.R.T. Furniture CEO Jeff Cook. “We are happy to have this partnership with UL and intend to further explore their other safety certifications to ensure we are leaders in home furnishings safety.”
