We are Optimists.

There's nothing quite like the feeling of being alive in nature!

We believe that life should follow the promise of abundance that’s inherent in the natural world. Nature demonstrates by its own example – how to create communities that feed & support each other, in cycles that eliminate the very concept of waste (a la Cradle to Cradle). Natural Upholstery’s intention is to embody this promise!

We are Building an Open Resource for the Upholstery Community.

We want to help you create healthy homes, while actively supporting the broader vision of a more sustainable furniture industry. Whether you are a design or upholstery professional, a maker, or hiring a professional, we hope you’ll take advantage of the tools we have available to assist you in choosing the right materials for your project. You’ll find videos & free downloads for measuring, and practical applications for natural upholstery materials. We look for and share with you the highest quality products we can find, and our objective is to help you get the most out of your investment while creating healthier home environments.

We Are a Resource for Natural & Organic Upholstery Materials.

Here at Natural Upholstery (formerly known as Living Home Furniture) we’ve been working with natural & organic upholstery materials since 2009. After selling online for 3 years, we discontinued sales in October 2019 in favor of becoming an unbiased resource for information and education about natural upholstery products on the market today. This includes 100% natural latex foams, organic & natural upholstery battings and tickings, and many less common materials. Our intention is to provide peer-reviewed listings, with actual customer feedback for each product from a specific vendor, so if you’ve purchased natural upholstery materials from any retailer anywhere, please share your experience in the comments here: ‘Where to Buy Healthy Non-Toxic Materials for Upholstery’. Need help with a specific project? Sign up for a one-on-one consultation with Carla.

We Offer Limited Upholstery Services (local only).

Is your old favorite chair looking (and feeling) a bit rough around the edges? We provide limited upholstery services in Livingston, Montana (no sofas or recliners please). Unfortunately we are not set up to take in remote work at this time. That said, many upholsterers are willing to work with the non-toxic natural materials once they know that they are not so very different to work with than ‘standard’ materials, so check with your local upholsterer and send them a link to ‘Natural Upholstery Information for Upholstery Professionals and Designers’ where they can learn more.
