Guide to buying organic furniture

Organic furniture is not such a clearly established category as is the case with clothing and food. If you say “organic” in this case, it should be understood more colloquially. People use this word to indicate that the product was made with environmentally friendly materials.

So when you say organic furniture, you mean environmentally friendly furniture. However, the selection is not based on any certifications. Rather, it is about keeping some objective criteria in mind when making the selection.

By and large, organic furniture, like other items of this type, is about not polluting the environment and not damaging our health.

Organic textiles and environmentally friendly wood

Ideally, the organic furniture is made from natural materials. That could be rattan or wood. Above all, they should be obtained in an environmentally friendly manner. The upholstery can consist of organic textiles.

The paintwork also plays a very important role. They must not be toxic. Organic furniture also excludes cheap labor. So buy organic when the products are made with valuable materials and by people who work with dignity.

Or you can opt for organic furniture from designers like these armchairs here from Paul Borrero

Mattresses

The mattresses that make up a part of beds or other pieces of furniture should be organic. There are clear criteria for this. They’re made from 95% organic matter and maybe a little bit of foam. The latter must ideally be made of latex and also organic.

This applies to all upholstery and furniture in which it is used.

Japanese mattresses

The Japanese mattresses are the cheaper alternative to the organic mattresses. They are an economical solution if you cannot afford the more expensive option. However, Japanese mattresses are not healthy for everyone. If you have any health problems, you should seek advice from your doctor before making such a purchase.

Recycled furniture

There are many ways to protect the environment and yourself. A lot of furniture has already been produced. That’s for sure. Whether we choose organic furniture or not, there is a lot of unsustainably produced furniture on offer. Nothing about that will change for a long time. By reusing the old furniture, you are making an environmentally friendly decision. Just make sure you renew these with organic materials.
