Your living space isn’t just your sanctuary—it's a little ecosystem.
Eco-friendly furniture is not only a plus for the environment, but also for the place you call home. We want the materials we use to be as clean and sustainable as possible. It’s a constant work in progress, because we’re always finding new things to improve on. The way we do things is surprisingly different from the rest of our industry. Learning about this stuff can get confusing, but we’re here to make it easy for you.
We use kiln-dried alder hardwood for our furniture frames and solid walnut and maple for tables and other hard goods. Backs, bottoms, drawer bottoms, and shelves of our storage pieces are crafted with FSC-certified, low-VOC CARB 2 compliant plywood (strong, lightweight, and smooth, plywood on the inside of our storage furniture helps lighten these sturdy pieces).
FSC-Certified Alder, Walnut, and Maple
We use domestically-sourced, kiln-dried alder hardwood for our furniture frames, and solid walnut and maple for tables and other hard goods. It always comes from FSC-certified forests.
FACT: Good materials take time: our alder wood comes from trees that took 25 years to grow.
We offer two kinds of fillings: CertiPUR-US®-certified foam and natural Dunlop latex.
All synthetic foams are not created equal. Our 2.5 lb. high-resilience CertiPUR-US®-certified poly foam is the cleanest synthetic choice and is better than other available polyurethane foams because the material consistently meets updated emissions and durability standards. CertiPUR-US® leaves out unwanted chemicals like flame retardants and formaldehyde. This material provides a medium-sit and holds it shape for years and years to come, providing outstanding comfort and durability.
Natural Dunlop Latex
Made from the sap of rubber trees, this foam is comfortable, breathable, and amazingly durable. It's also mold-resistant, antimicrobial, and doesn’t transfer motion the way cushions and mattresses with coil springs can, making for a smooth and bounce-free lounge. When you choose natural latex foam, it means your furniture is 100% natural from the inside out (which is hard to find!). We use Dunlop latex for its durability and completely natural composition. If you want to know more (like, way more) about our natural latex, we nerded out about it here.
Wool is such a magical material. It’s naturally breathable, hypoallergenic, temperature-regulating, antibacterial, moisture-wicking, and stain-resisting (not to mention biodegradable and renewable).
OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Wool
Our wool is gently shorn from grass-fed crossbred sheep, and sourced from farmers who genuinely care for the environment, encourage healthy ecosystems, and follow the “five freedoms” for animal welfare.
Our Wool meets the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 international mark of textile quality, indicating that it’s free from APEO, NPEO, pesticides, carcinogenic colourants, and heavy metals. We use it as an upholstery fabric and as a fluffy, comfy filling for chairs and sofas.
FACT: Wool is unexpectedly amazing when it comes to fire safety. Due to the way the wool strands are structured, they are naturally flame-resistant. It’s science!
We spend a lot of time obsessing about fabrics, and we’re continually sourcing new options and raising our standards.
The all-natural fabrics in our collection are selected for their beautiful textures and durability. We offer several cotton and linen upholstery fabrics, as well as some certified organic textiles. All are Greenguard Gold Certified, GOTS Certified, or Oeko-Tex 100 Certified.
When a fabric is synthetic, it’s a better synthetic, chosen for durability and healthier materials. Synthetics are generally easier to clean (and keep clean), making them a go-to for customers with busy households, kids, and pets. Several of our offerings incorporate plant-based water repellents to counter spills and stains, and are almost all certified eco-friendly by third-parties: Greenguard Gold or Oeko-Tex 100.
It’s not just the fabrics you can see and touch. All the linings inside our furniture are made of natural fibers like breathable cotton and jute, including some organic cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard.
Our plant-based and natural beeswax finishes protect and accentuate the beauty of our woods, bringing a matte finish and gorgeous, subtle glow to each piece.
Safe for people and the planet
We nourish and protect our furniture with a plant-based, hardwax oil wood finish that is odorless, 0% VOC, and water- and heat-resistant. Exposed wood bases on sofas, sectionals and ottomans are sealed with a 100% bio-based finish made of beeswax, carnauba wax, and olive oil.
