10 Eco & Sustainable Furniture Companies In 2024
The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
Designing your home can be a daunting task, especially when looking for ethically made and sustainable furniture. Thankfully, there are various affordable and eco-friendly options available — from couches and consoles to kitchen seating and sectionals.
Why consider sustainable furniture?
Furniture is often made from natural resources like wood — and when mass produced has devastating deforestation and greenhouse emission impacts. Mindfully selecting sustainable furniture when elevating your space takes the environment into consideration, as sustainable furniture uses eco-friendly materials like reclaimed wood, recycled materials, and bamboo, limiting the need for sourcing new materials. Sustainable furniture is also most often made without toxic materials and harmful chemicals like VOCs, allowing you to keep the health of your indoor environment in check. Because furniture is a long-term investment, it’s even more important to consider sustainable furniture pieces that are ethically and responsibly made, as they can make a significant difference for our homes, our families, and the planet.
Our team has researched and tested dozens of sustainable furniture companies and scoured thousands of customer reviews for this round-up of our top picks. We update this list regularly with emerging favorites that meet our criteria below.
- SUSTAINABLE/NONTOXIC | The health of our homes and the environment is our priority — each of these furniture companies sustainably source and craft their furniture from reclaimed, recycled, and natural materials that are free from harmful chemicals that can pollute our air and harm our health.
- ETHICAL | Fair labor practices, traditional artisan craftsmanship, and sustainable practices that support local economies are valued by each of our selected brands.
- AFFORDABLE | Furniture can be expensive! We’ve made sure to include plenty of budget-friendly sustainable options to choose from.
We love the below furniture brands for their sustainable materials (including recycled fabrics and wood) and their focus on fair trade and responsible production practices. A beautiful home isn’t far off with a few statement items from these collections. For another affordable and sustainable option, don’t miss our guide for thrifting secondhand furniture.

Maiden Home Review | “I received my 85″ Varick in Emerald Velvet almost a year ago and I have to say that this has been one of the best purchases I’ve ever made! I spend quite a bit of time working remote and lounging on my Varick– it has held up very nicely with very minimal maintenance. I’ve also received so many compliments from guests and never have to worry about spills or accidents when eating– I literally just wipe everything away with a warm sponge and a little soap.” – T.M.

Sabai Review | “I’m really happy with my decision. Our family spent 3 years without a couch because we moved, then pandemic, and also having a young infant, toddler, dog, and cat… I just couldn’t imagine getting a new couch and seeing it destroyed. So we waited and we were looking for something that lined up with our values. The minute I read about Sabai, I knew this was it. The sofa itself is amazing, we’ve taken so many naps on it, and we enjoy reading on it a lot. It has held up to the kids and pets so far, and we do cover it with blankets because our cat seems to enjoy getting her claws out on it. The color is amazing – I got the seafoam and it feels sophisticated and classic enough that I know we’ll happily keep this couch forever…” -Nathalie L. [See all reviews]
