We've found a company giving old furniture new eco-friendly and gorgeous life (the above being before photos, of course) as well as helping homeowners navigate the confusing waters of green design. Weigh in on whether you feel like there are enough chemical and toxic free interior furnishing options out there!

Little Pond's owner Rebekah Gainsley really believes in creating products that help people live safer, happier lives. Her newly launched design business will offer clients lots of choices, like vintage chairs and sofas with non-toxic fabric, safely refinished old furniture, and even paint consultation with environmentally-friendly paints. Choose from vintage furniture Little Pond's creative team has collected or offer up your own; the team will help walk you through the most environmentally safest ways to give it new life. Though this isn't the first business to offer refurbishing, reupholstering or upcycling services, we really appreciate the simplicity and authenticity of Gainsley's claims---not to mention the great-looking products.

There have no doubt been many strides in the green architecture and building world, but how do you think interior product offerings stack up? Do you feel like there are plenty or hardly any choices for people who want to decorate chemical and toxic free? What do you think about Little Pond's work? Let us know!
