Organic mattresses, furniture create non-toxic environment

You’ve probably tried to buy organic food, beauty products, even clothing — but what about your bed or your living room sofa?

The Futon Shop has been in business for more than 40 years, and CEO and founder Suzanne Diamond says the company prides itself on using eco-friendly and organic ingredients to create affordable healthy non-toxic furniture.

“Organic ingredients that are non-toxic offer you a safer, deeper and healthy night sleep,” she said. “Mattresses and furniture commonly use flame retardants, VOCs and petro-chemical pollutants that stay in your home and body and creates disease.”

It isn’t just organic mattresses The Futon Shop makes either. “We offer natural furniture including sofas, toppers, futons, platform beds, pillows, dog beds and even crib mattresses,” Diamond said. “We also specialize in chemical-free boat cushions, and handcrafting custom-size cushions for indoor or outdoor furniture. And, of course, we specialize in futon sofa beds.”

The Futon Shop does all the manufacturing and distribution from their workshop in San Francisco, enabling them to offer the highest quality ingredients at the best prices. “We buy organic cotton and wool from farmers,” Diamond said. “We manufacture our furniture with the best micro-coils, organic Dunlop latex, coconut coir and fabrics from all around the world. We combine these ingredients to produce comfortable and affordable chemical-free, natural and organic furniture.”

The Futon Shop is also excited about the launch of a new 100 percent organic latex and coconut coir mattresses “There are alternating layers of organic coconut coir and organic latex, with wool and it is completely customizable,” Diamond said.

The Futon Shop has a locations in San Marcos at 1232 Los Vallecitos Boulevard #118 and in La Jolla at 7470 Girard Avenue. For more information and to see the full line of products available, visit or call 800-44-futon for a store near you.
