Eco-Friendly Furniture

Let’s celebrate Earth Day by talking about sustainability when it comes to furniture. We’ll introduce you to a few companies that respect the environment, and then we have some great eco-friendly resources for you.

A Few Eco-Friendly Furniture Companies

1. VivaTerra
VivaTerra works with artisans around the world (in 20 countries!) to make beautiful eco-friendly goods from reclaimed or recycled materials. Their products are chemical-free and they use natural dyes. Four unique products we love:

Founded by one of the first few people to make sustainable upholstered furniture, Cisco Pinedo, CISCO HOME is all about FSC-certified furniture. That means they use wood chopped in responsible ways — no illegal logging, no pesticides, no disrupting fragile ecosystems (more info). A few great pieces:
