Conclusion

While it is a very complicated subject, where everything comes in shades of grey, there does seem to be one question where there really is a clear answer;

“should we buy furniture of the highest possible quality that we aim to keep for generations, or should we buy the cheaper mass-produced stuff that will look good for a couple of years, tatty for a few more years and then end up being burnt, or rotting in landfill?”.

The former will capture the carbon for a lot longer, will use a lot less overall energy, and usually use less plastic, so from an environmental standpoint the answer seems clear.

As I do further research or I am made aware of new information, I will aim to provide updates.
