Born in 2008, LivingOn is our sustainability program. The values that underpin LivingOn have shaped the way our business has grown, and our award-winning approach to sustainability has set a benchmark for our industry.
The LivingOn program began in 2008 with a recognition that our commitment to sustainability needed to be bigger than supplying product that met certain industry standards. We realised that we had a responsibility to the planet and its people to be a sustainable company in our own right, and that doing so could give our business an edge and even help to transform our industry.
Since 2008, the LivingOn program has evolved to focus on environmental, social, and economic issues in line with the ‘triple bottom line’ of people, planet, and prosperity.
We believe that our business can be a force for good. As a Certified B Corp, we’re part of a global community of businesses that meet high standards of social and environmental impact
B stands for Benefit for all
Living Edge became a Certified B Corp in May 2023. Becoming a B Corp was an important moment in our company’s history; it marked the culmination of 15 years of work and impact through our LivingOn sustainability program, and the start of a new journey as a member of global movement. We’re seeking to change our economic system to positively impact all stakeholders – our team members, communities, customers, and our planet. Achieving B Corp Certification also provides a valuable validation that we are on the right path to building a truly sustainable and socially responsible business.

Furniture for Life - Products designed and made to last a lifetime.
We choose to supply high quality furniture that’s designed to be passed down from generation to generation. We are committed to enabling the repair, re-use, remanufacturing, and resale of products to maximise their lifespan.
Live Responsibly - Understanding our impact and taking responsibility for our actions.
We recognise that our activities create environmental, social, and economic impacts throughout our value chain. We pledge to act responsibly, minimise the negative impact of our activities, and maximise positive outcomes.
Think Circular - Making our business more circular.
We strive to be a leader in the future circular economy in Australia. We are passionate advocates for the benefits of the circular economy and its potential to create a paradigm shift in the way we consume furniture products.
At Living Edge, we believe the circular economy has the power to help tackle some of our industry’s biggest challenges, and we want to become a leader in circularity in our market. We have defined three areas of focus that we believe will help us build a more circular business, they are: products fit for circularity, circular models of usership and ownership, and circular end-of-life pathways.
Relive is a sustainability program that aims to create a second life for authentic, original, and sustainable furniture. Relive achieves this aim by enabling the reuse and resale of Living Edge products through a repair & refurbishment and a sales platform for pre-owned Relive products.

Lifecycle is a circular procurement model developed by Living Edge to enable a more flexible and sustainable approach to furniture procurement. Lifecycle is delivered through a leasing model, allowing our customers to benefit from using our best-in-class products whilst Living Edge retains ownership of, and ultimately responsibility for, those assets. Lifecycle is based on the circular concept of usership over ownership.
Lifecycle includes a suite of integrated services that enhance the usership experience and enable Living Edge to deliver furniture-as-a-service. Through consultation, Living Edge can create a product service package that is tailored to your organisation’s specific needs and circumstances, all delivered through a simple monthly fee.
Most importantly, Lifecycle includes an inherent product stewardship commitment that focuses on keeping high-quality products in use for multiple lifecycles, before they are retired through sustainable end-of-life pathways.
