Home Furnishings Demand + Severe Storms in the South
In addition to our HDPE being sourced in the US, we also proudly source our foam and Sunbrella fabric for our soft seating collections within the US, as well. While not relying on shipments from overseas gave us resiliency throughout most of the pandemic, demand for outdoor furniture products has increased exponentially creating shortages in raw materials. This pinch was further aggravated by the ice storms and cold temperatures that swept the southern United States in February. This area is responsible for producing a significant amount of the foam in the U.S. and they are still recovering from major infrastructure damage.
As factories begin producing again, they are working feverishly to not only produce the foam from orders today, but also for orders they received while shutdown or while operating at minimal capacity. As decimating as this is to the furniture industry, we are happy to see our fellow American manufacturers recover and begin producing high quality materials that make our soft seating collections so special.
Orders for Loll’s Soft Seating Collections
As we wait for the foam industry to bounce back, you’ll see unusually long lead times for our soft seating collections which include the Nisswa, Platform One and Sunnyside. The lead times shown on our products pages reflect the best information currently available for new orders, however these can be subject to fluidity based on potential unforeseeable factors outside of our control.
If you recently ordered one of these collections from us, we’ll update you as soon as we can with revised ship dates if your order was affected.
