Organic furniture. That's the business of Furnature, an organic furniture manufacturer and showroom in Massachusets. They create chemical-free mattresses, sofas, and upholstered furniture and sell organic bedding and linens. Their story:In the spring of 1994, our firm received a request for a custom sofa from a woman that would change the face of our business. Her immune system was compromised after her home was exterminated for pests. She became so ill that she couldn't tolerate ordinary furniture and bedding. After three years of extensive research, the first sofa using all chemical-free ingredients was produced and Furnature™ was born.
Their upholstered pieces are traditional in style, though we did see this modern Boston Lounge on a visit to Furnature's website. We also dig their O-Wool Organic Blankets, pictured up top.
