If any single piece of furniture could be called the heart of the home, it would be the sofa. It is the place where family and friends nest together, where you stretch out after a long day's work and where you settle in to be entertained by the internet or television. These bold and bright sofas will delight your brain and relax your body.
When shopping for a sofa, construction materials is something you should consider, not only for the longevity of the piece, but also to minimize the indoor air toxicity at home. Construction material considerations for clean home air include: yes to water-based glues and no to brominated flame retardants in the fabric or foam like PBDEs and other BFRs.
