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.
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.
A circular approach whereby each step of design and manufacture considers the impact on your and the planet's wellbeing.
Our wood of choice, bamboo, is FSC-certified, fast-growing, non-destructive and carbon neutral in its primary production process, without the use of pesticides or fertilisers.
Our natural cushions contain a core layer of spongy latex, padded with coconut coir – and a triple layer of cotton and lambswool.
