Cleaner air for your home

Low VOC emitting furniture for asthma and allergy sufferers. Our covers hold the Indoor Advantage Gold label for Indoor Air quality.


The quality of the air we breathe within our homes can have a direct effect on our overall health. Pollutants off-gassed by new furniture are considered carcinogens and have been shown to worsen allergies and asthma.  

The Problem

Cheap particle board, plastic materials and polyurethane/ petroleum-based foams make up most sofas. These materials aggravate allergy sufferers through VOC (volatile organic compounds) off-gassing and contain harsh, toxic chemicals and chemical flame retardants. 

Over 83% of sofas in the UK aren't reused. Resulting in 22 million pieces of furniture being discarded in the UK every year.
