Avoid toxic chemicals: When furniture shopping, keep paint and other finishing products in mind. Paint, waterproofing treatments, leather treatments, stain-resistant products etc. can contain harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Look for products are VOC-Free outside and in. Remember that chemicals can also be found inside furniture – in the foam or webbing of sofas, chairs, bedheads or in the adhesive used. Flame-retardants for example sound like a great idea, but some studies suggest that these chemicals could lead to cancer, autism, obesity and reproductive issues.
