Design Thinking for Business

A Design approach to Business is where we started; now we take a Business approach to Design.

Trellis has provided business support through design & Marketing for 9 years and now that includes your business environment.

Trellis has partnered with Folio Interior Design to bring a complete solution for commercial spaces, and Trellis Interior Concepts is the sweet spot between business and design.

Folio brings their expertise in space planning, expert material  knowledge and aesthetics, while Trellis provides consulting services such as information gathering, research, software development, remote work strategies, digital solutions and brand integration.

Our partners provide expertise in the areas of Health & Safety, Fire-Rated Furniture and Technology to bring you that solution you need to help you take a wider view of the changes in your workplace and then set about creating a plan to follow to get you to your ideal work setting.

For condominium communities, this expertise is a point of big relief for corporate boards tasked with finding furniture for their lobby that will meet the fire regulations and also be super stylish and beautifully made.

We offer, on this website, a selection of furniture that you can be assured was burn-tested according to CAL TB-133; you need only to order and get a quote! A Folio designer will bring you the fabrics to show the board that are within the guidelines, so you don’t have to worry, and don’t have to pay to have a piece tested.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is all your furniture fire-rated?2021-01-26T18:43:41-05:00

All our furniture is covered with fire-rated fabrics that meet CAL TB-117 standards, and can be a “built to meet” CAL TB-133 standard (but not necessarily burn tested). We also offer several lines of furniture that have already been burn tested and meet CAL TB-133 standards.

Do we require fire-rated furniture in our condo party room or games room?2021-02-08T14:12:08-05:00

If residents do not need to exit the building through your party room, then your party room is not a means of egress. In that room you may use untested furniture.

We have a sprinkler system in our Lobby. Do we still require TB-133 Compliant furniture?2021-01-26T18:45:55-05:00

You do not need to have furniture that meets TB-133 if you have a functional sprinkler system in your Lobby. Should you wish to voluntarily choose furniture with this rating, you will be extra safe. But it is not required as of this writing. But always check with your local Fire Marshall for the latest changes.

What is Cal TB-117?2021-01-26T18:46:28-05:00

California Technical Bulletin 117, otherwise known as CAL TB-117 for short, is a regulation that sets the standard for fabric flammability in the furniture industry. It has become a nationwide standard. CAL TB-117 requires that certain materials pass both an open flame and smolder test.

What is Cal TB-133?2021-01-26T18:46:54-05:00

California Bulletin 133 is similar to CAL TB-117, except that it involves a lab test where the entire piece of furniture must be tested (burned), rather than just a few select components. So this means the fabric, foam and frame are built incorporating a burn-resistant layer.

What is the process for ordering fire-rated furniture with Trellis Interior Concepts?2021-01-26T18:47:28-05:00

First, find the furniture that you’re interested in and complete the online ordering form. After you submit your no-obligation payment-free inquiry, one of our designers will contact you to review your order and answer any questions. Then, our designer will send you physical fabric samples for review. Once your order details are confirmed and your fabric is selected, a deposit will be left and your furniture will be ordered.

When do I pay for my order?2021-01-26T18:48:20-05:00

You only pay after you have confirmed all furniture specifications and approved the physical fabric swatch sample with our partner designer. You do not pay using our online order platform.

Do you deliver?2021-01-26T18:49:55-05:00

Absolutely. We coordinate delivery of your furniture to your condominium, office or building. Our “white glove” delivery service includes delivery, installation, leveling, quality inspection and full cleanup. We can even dispose of your existing furniture.

How long does it take for my furniture to be delivered once I leave a deposit?2021-01-26T18:50:57-05:00

Once your furniture order is approved, it takes approximately 6-8 weeks for delivery.

Where is the furniture built?2021-01-26T18:51:41-05:00

All our fire-rated furniture is built in North America. We work with manufacturers in Toronto and in the USA.

Where are you located?2021-01-26T18:52:06-05:00

Do you have a showroom?2021-01-26T18:52:36-05:00
