Eco-Friendly Furniture Materials
Healthy Planet, Healthy Home
A lot of companies just offer one or two eco-friendly elements and just slap a label on to get with the trend. For us, eco-friendly furniture is a consideration for all components of every piece. It's about thinking about our planet, the eco-friendly focus for sustainable furniture. But it's also about our customers and their homes, what we call home-friendly. This is all about non-toxic furniture.
We're nature and wellness enthusiasts and incorporate natural materials whenever possible. Mother (nature) knows best, and what we put into our homes matters. Let's slow things down and connect back to the goodness of nature.
No fire retardants and no harsh chemicals
We take pride in knowing that every Medley product is made from the best available materials that are better for our planet and our homes.
All of the upholstered sofa and sectional frames are made with kiln dried hardwood from certified locally sourced forests, and FSC certified. The Alder wood we use comes from trees that took 25 years to grow. The strict FSC process helps protect the environment to ensure the trees are harvested in a sustainable manner. Plus, with solid wood the furniture last longer and doesn't require the chemicals used in most plywood frames.
Our case goods are made with either FSC certified, domestically sourced hardwoods, or bamboo sheets. Using solid woods ensures not only a beautiful, it's much easier to care for long term. For a beautiful matte zero VOC finish we use Daddy Van's, simply made of beeswax, carnauba wax, and olive oil.
On our upholstered furniture offer a wide range of fibers, textures, and weaves so you're sure to find something that's perfect for your space. We've done the research and only offer fabrics that are natural, recycled, or have removed harsh chemicals. The cotton lining we use for the internal frames and dust covers are certified organic via GOLS as well.
It's not enough to just focus on the visible materials, it all matters in terms of the impact on nature as our health. Natural twine is used along with jute for the frame lining. We never use fire retardants, formaldehyde, or harsh chemicals. For any wood glues we're using zero VOC.
None of our fabrics have fire retardants or stain finishes, and we even offer 100% natural like cotton, hemp and wool, and some certified organic textiles as well.
For the filling, you have the choice of CertiPUR-US® certified foam or certified organic natural latex. From the sap of rubber trees, natural latex is 100% natural, very durable, with no chemicals. it's also bacteria, mildew, and mold resistant. This is one of the most unique materials we offer for our eco-friendly furniture.
The eco-wool we use follows sustainability and cruelty free standards, and is free of all chemical additives. Wool is an amazing material for furniture that wears well, is comfortable, and of course is natural. It's also OEKO-tex certified.
