Sustainable Bedding & Furniture

There is a growing trend stepping towards  at-home sustainability.  Home décor and bedding brands are redefining our concept of what trendy bedding and furniture looks like.

“The rise in direct-to-consumer bedding brands not only translates to higher quality goods for fairer prices but also to higher quality goods made with fairer environmental practices. In addition to premium eco-friendly products, many of these companies also partner with environmental-protection groups to promote social action too; whether it’s planting a tree per purchase, exploring alternative energy options, practicing people-first employee ethics and equal pay, or even just minimizing water consumption.” ~ Refinery 29

Pottery Barn Early Fall 2019

I was recently viewing all the early Fall online home decor catalogs to take note of upcoming trends.  I was happy to note that Pottery Barn has made a strong move to provide sustainable bedding and furniture.

In fact, they are one of the top ten global purchasers of organic cotton and largest retailers of responsibly sourced wood and sustainability is a growing pillar of their brand. They have a large collection of organic, sustainably sourced, fair trade certified and handcrafted products. Quality is in the details and the combination of sustainable materials, timeless designs and a commitment to craft is setting them apart. They are on track to reach 100% responsibly sourced cotton by 2021 through their commitments to organizations like the Global Organic Textiles Standard (GOTS) and the Better Cotton Initiative.

I also thought their products this year were stunning.

Pottery Barn Sustainable Teak Bed

In their first reclaimed teak collection, the beauty is found in the details.  Sustainably sourced wood and exposed joinery are the defining factors. The Menlo Teak Canopy Bed brings rustic warmth to a bedroom. The sustainably sourced wood reveals inherent markings and grain, giving each piece its own character and beauty. Details like exposed through tenons give this substantial canopy bed its authentic look.

The Belgian Flax Linen Bedding is Fair Trade Certified™ that ensure fair and safe labor practices, improved livelihoods and empower workers to invest in their communities. As a proud member of the Fair Trade USA network of brands, they pay into a Community Development Fund for every Fair Trade Certified™ product sold so that a worker committee can collectively invest in projects of their choice.

What I love best about this Belgian Flax Linen Bedding Collection is that it takes neutral bedding to a whole new level.  Gorgeous layers of texture and subtle detailing create a look that is casual, yet romantic. From softly pleated ruffles to hand-stitched quilted shams that allow you to lounge in luxury, season after season.

Velvet Bedding

From soft, breathable sheets to luxe velvet quilts, cotton is the top choice for all things bedding.

Pottery Barn is committed to sourcing 50% of their wood through sustainable practices.  The Hensley bedroom furniture collection is made with reclaimed Pine, which reduces wasted materials and contributes to forest protection.  They are working with sourcing partners in India to find the most beautiful salvaged lumber to bring this collection to life.

Taking a page from Parisian design, the Toulouse bed effortlessly mixes relaxed linen upholstery with a gray-washed wood frame. The Ivana Organic Print Bedding has large medallions that are inspired by a traditional painterly damask, featuring updated hues for a timely feel.

Channel the style of your favorite boutique hotel with a cozy upholstered bed, a soft rug underfoot and luxe bedding that makes you want to stay under the covers a little longer.

A large-scale buffalo check is a statement look for the bed, and the Bryce Duvet Cover is a casual and comfortable choice. It pairs perfectly with the matching sham, or mix with solid colors to create your own look.

Every new season, Pottery Barn designers sketch, craft and concept original pieces from their San Francisco studio.  The result is inspiring looks that balance timeless silhouettes with the latest trends.  This season, there is a gorgeous palette of neutrals, soft grays, and shades of red, blue and green.
