Top 5 Green Couches: Verde Design
A green sofa may seem foreign to some. Just like milk in a bag. But they are out there, and worth looking for.
The Gaylord Sofa by Chicao-based Verde Design Studio features non-toxic finishes and glues, natural rubber latex foam cushions, certified tropical hardwoods and even reclaimed woods. Every component of the pieces they manufacture are recyclable or biodegradable. Very cool stuff.
Plus, it’s hand-made in Chicago means a reduced overall carbon footprint (well, if you’re in North America, that is). Oh, and it’s beautiful too.
