A common concern we hear from new clients interested in creating a non-toxic home is “Will it still look beautiful?” Our emphatic answer: “Yes!” Take a peek inside Jennifer’s family home for proof…
Can You Spy the Non-toxic Upholstery?
The great thing about non-toxic upholstery is that the most significant improvements are invisible! We can design the perfect sofa with sophisticated fabric options and unique design details using healthier foam inside the cushions. For custom pieces we specify natural latex foam wrapped in organic wool which contain no harmful flame retardant chemicals. Frames are built from sustainably harvested wood with non-toxic, water-based glues. This is a perfect solution for those who are chemically sensitive or who suffer from allergies.
Create a cozy, textural vibe by layering natural fabrics such as organic cotton and linen, and selecting wool rugs which are durable and eco-friendly. Choose zero-VOC paints which eliminate off-gassing, resulting in safer indoor air quality.
