“Green furniture” has become an all-encompassing term to describe retailers and manufacturers that sell and sustainably produce furniture. In other words, furniture that’s both better for the environment and your home.
And as founding members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, it’s something we take very seriously. We partner with companies that use green practices whenever possible—from where they source their materials to how they manufacture their upholstery.
But what, exactly, does it mean for furniture to be green? We talked with Catherine to break down everything you need to know.
