Environmentally Sound Fabric
We strive to work with certified fabrics to ensure that not only you are using the cleanest option for your home, but that the impact of fabric production on the environment is minimized. Some of our certifications include GOTS, Oeko-Tex® Standard 100,and EU Eco-label Flower.
Recycled Polyester - Rest easy with this earth-friendly fabric. Made from recycled soda bottles, it keeps plastic out of landfills and cuts down on air, water and soil contamination. Durable and easy to clean, this versatile fabric is soft to the touch and striking to the eye.
Organic Wool - Nature's wonder fiber. This resilient, luxurious fabric
refuses to pick up odors - even when the dog refuses to nap elsewhere.
Free-roaming sheep are gently shorn for this wool and never dipped or
treated with unkind chemicals.
Hemp - The ultimate environmentally-friendly fabric with durability that's ideal for the well-used sofa. Hemp is four times stronger than cotton, biodegradable, naturally non-toxic, and pest-resistant. Perfect for families with kids and pets. We offer hemp slipcovers for the Eli, Chelan, and Round D collections.
Frame & Cushions
FSC-Certified Wood Frames - All our sofa frames provide solid foundation you can trust and are made with wood you can feel good about. We use only FSC-certified wood, which is harvested in a sustainable fashion from well-managed forests that responsibly protect endangered species and old growth trees. It is truly feel-good wood.
Latex Foam Cushions - Sustainably-harvested rubber tree sap turns into totally clean comfort as foam in our chair and sofa cushions. Natural latex foam resists dust mites, mold, mildew, and bacteria and is durable, biodegradable and renewable. Most mainstream furniture is constructed with petroleum-based foam (polyurethane), which clogs up landfills and the air quality in your home.
Organic Cotton & Wool Batting - More chemicals are used on cotton than any other crop, and that just won't fly when it comes to a healthy home. We use all organic cotton batting in our cushions, coupled with naturally fire-retardant and anti-microbial organic wool. The result is furniture that is free of chemicals and critters known to cause allergic reactions and reduce indoor air quality.
Eight-Way Hand-Tied Steel Coils - This traditional, labor-intensive construction method provides superior comfort and structural integrity. Recycled steel coils are each tied with jute fiber cord eight times, from front to back, side to side and crossways, to prevent give in the frame. Perhaps the only instance in which we don't believe in giving, it does mean you're bound to get a whole lot more from your sofa.
Adhesives - We use 100% solvent-free, water-based glues on all furniture. These adhesives emit no VOCs (volatile organic compounds), unlike conventional glue products, making them less smelly and far smarter for use in the home. Water-based glues do not negatively impact indoor air quality, so you stay healthy while your sofa sticks together.
