I love to see a mainstream company starting to get it. “It” being the fact that if we don’t change the way products are made we may be headed towards a global meltdown. Oh, yeah, that again.
Pottery Barn is one company that is moving in the right direction, with more and more products in its catalog using sustainable materials. Just this week I stumbled upon the PB Comfort Grand Sofa, which features eco-friendly construction. OK, so it isn’t perfect but it is pretty darn close. The sofa’s seat cushions are made of 20 percent soy-based material, the frame is made of sustainably harvested SFI-certified hardwood and the sofa’s springs are made of recycled heavy-gauge steel. Pottery Barn now even offers organic cotton slipcovers for its furniture.
The PB Comfort Grand Sofa retails for $1,599.00 – $2,599.00 depending on your slipcover choice.
