Lee Industries goes Green with their Natural Lee line
By now most of you are familiar with “green” decorating, living a green life, how to make eco-friendly choices etc. In fact, so much has been written about green living over the past few years that the phrase “green noise” has been coined to point out that much of what we read and hear becomes background noise, similar to white noise. But every once in a while something new pops up on the green horizon that is worth paying attention to.
Lee Industries, a familiar name in the furniture industry, recently introduced their new line of furniture under the name Natural Lee. All of the pieces in this collection have been created in an environmentally friendly manner. Seating features soy based cushions; filling material is made from recycled fibers; all wood frames use wood that comes from forests certified by the FSC (forest stewardship council) and finishes on fabric and wood are water based. Not only do these measures protect the environment but they also insure that fewer toxins are released into your home from products like oil based varnishes and fabric finishes. For more information on this line and Lee Industries’ commitment to the environment visit their website at www.leeindustries.com/aboutenvironmentfaq.asp.
Lee offers many different styles of furniture to complement any decor from a sleek armed sofa to a comfy and cozy slipcovered loveseat. You can choose from their selection of fabrics or have the items made using a fabric of your own choice. This allows you to truly customize every piece you order for a one-of-a-kind look in your home. Check out the designer fabrics offered at www.onlinefabricstore.net that include names like Robert Allen, Covington and Waverly. Isn’t it nice to know that your beautiful sofa is allowing you to make a contribution to the “green” movement and still have a beautiful and comfortable home?
