At CounterEv Home, we're always looking for ways to improve on our craftsmanship. After all, one of the best ways to be sustainable is to build our furniture to last for generations. That's always been our goal and the motivating force that led us to an innovative fastening system that's been around for over 100 years: RIVETING!
Riveting is a unique process of permanently joining two pieces of material with metal fasteners. It's how airplanes are put together (loosely speaking), and it was the preferred trade of the fictional Rosie the Riveter who mobilized the valuable female workforce in the United States during World War II.
So after months of research and development (read: trial and error), we created our SplashUps slatted series. A line of seating that uses rivets to fasten slats of reclaimed bowling lane wood to our domestically sourced, powder-coated steel. The result is a rock-solid seat.

With our use of rivets we're continuing to employ innovative manufacturing techniques to create the ultimate in stylish, sustainable furniture, built to last for generations. We think Rosie would be proud.
