Story Of Autism & Special Needs Furniture
at 16 in an auto accident and left paralyzed on the left side of
my body, I needed special comfort and support other furniture just
couldn’t offer. While attending the University of Oregon I
decided to design a new type of chair, one which employed specially
cut foam to create this type of support and relief. As time went
on more and more people saw my first chair and wanted one of their
own, which lead to the creation of Robb’s
Pillow Furniture in 1973.
As the business developed, demand for new and different types of
pillow furniture grew. This in turn lead to the birth of a wide
variety of pillow furniture; everything from pillow chairs, to “raindrop”
chairs, to pillow beds, massage sets, pet beds, and more.
What sets our furniture apart from
other designers is the unique engineering that goes into the support
system in our furniture. The process begins by applying a one of
a kind cutting method for the polyurethane foam that acts as the
backbone for our furniture. This patented process cuts the foam
into specific multi-sided dimensions, creating air spaces around
the pieces that gives a loft of comfort as well as a “zero
pressure point” feel. We don't add any additional chemicals
to any of our products, and the foam is out-gassed during the cutting
process, so our furniture works well for chemically sensitive individuals.
Our furniture is then covered in only the highest grade synthetic
fabrics to ensure durability for years of use. Our furniture will
never go flat because fluffing enriches and returns it to its original
shape even after years of usage. Our furniture can even be customized
for firmness and support to satisfy any special needs!
Needless to say my customers have
been a great inspiration. Over the years numerous people with special
needs, everything from autism, Asperger's syndrome, fibromyalgia,
lupus, and many other physical disabilities, have benefited from
my unique brand of furniture, and offered great advice on how to
improve our products to suit their own special needs. As more and
more customers with special needs purchased our products, it was
clear that there was a great demand for my unique brand of furniture
tailored to the special needs community. It is with this idea in
mind that Austism & Special Needs Furniture was born!
