Sustainable Furniture: Redefining Eco-Friendly Living

Saturday 22 July, 2023 Sustainability

Your lounge suite is the heart of your living space, providing comfort and style to your home...

As environmental consciousness grows, the demand for sustainable and eco-friendly furniture is on the rise. Embracing sustainable furniture not only reduces your carbon footprint but also supports responsible manufacturing practices.

Many of our products contains a high amount of foam, particularly our mattresses. Oscar Living uses only the cleanest and greenest method of foam making, with the use of Variable Pressure Foam Technology (VPF)

VPF captures all emissions, exceeds EPA requirements, requires no Auxiliary Blowing Agents and produces virtually no VOCs.

This means we don’t use or emit additional CO2 or Methylene Chloride as is required in traditional foam lines. For more information visit our material vendors website

Now let's explore the world of eco-friendly furniture and discover how it can redefine your living space.

  1. Recycled Materials: Many sustainable furniture pieces are crafted from recycled materials, such as reclaimed wood, plastic bottles, and even discarded textiles. By giving new life to old materials, these pieces reduce the need for new resources.
  2. FSC-Certified Wood: Look for furniture made from FSC-certified wood, which ensures that the wood comes from responsibly managed forests. This certification promotes the preservation of natural habitats and supports ethical logging practices.
  3. Low VOC Finishes: Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are harmful chemicals found in traditional furniture finishes. Opt for low VOC or water-based finishes that emit fewer pollutants, creating a healthier indoor environment.
  4. Sustainable Upholstery: Choose upholstery fabrics made from organic materials, such as organic cotton, hemp, or bamboo. These fabrics are free from harmful pesticides and chemicals, making them a safer and eco-friendly choice.
  5. Ethical Production: Consider furniture brands that prioritize ethical production practices. Look for certifications like Fair Trade, which ensure fair wages and safe working conditions for artisans and factory workers.

By investing in sustainable furniture, you not only contribute to a greener planet but also surround yourself with pieces that have a unique story to tell. Join the movement of eco-friendly living and make a positive impact on the world through your furniture choices.
