An Organic Futon For Color, Play & Happiness! #TheFutonShop #spon


We are absolutely thrilled this post and giveaway is sponsored by The Futon Shop - organic & eco-friendly home decor options for your healthy family


The giveaway is over, but style is forever!  Be inspired to create healthy spaces for your family! 

                          Organic Living, Color & Play is Pure Childhood Happiness! 

As a mom, organic living, color and play are all a necessary part of childhood (and adult) happiness!  Childhood can and should be magical - full of wonder and delight.  To me, a huge part of that is a green and eco-friendly environment - not furniture that emits toxic VOCs, "air fresheners" from a spray bottle and not fire-resistant chemicals added to...well....everything.  Creating a home that is free from these synthetic and toxic chemicals is extremely important to me and my children's health - now and their future health.  I feel as strongly about that as I do about eating organic and chemical free food.



Let me start by saying - we were given a sofa years and years ago when my daughter was born and it was pretty heavily used when we received it.  When the kids got older we came up with enough money to replace it (sofas can only take so much jumping and fort building on them) but to be honest every single time I went to look at sofas or even futons they smelled so bad of chemicals I just couldn't do it.  Everything I read about the process of furniture making and what they are made of and the toxic chemicals that are used...well, I just decided we would keep what we had - falling apart or not.  That seemed infinitely better than subjecting my children and myself to such an unhealthy environment.  I am extremely sensitive to any chemical smells.  I think most people inherently are, they just become so accustomed to chemical smells, they aren't even aware that your laundry should never smell "mountain fresh" - unless your laundry is actually line dried in the mountains!  We have got to RE-think our idea of what is healthy!  The scariest commercial I've seen is the air "freshener" spray that is sprayed in children's bedroom as they sleep!  Agh! NO NO NO!  Please don't do that.  We wonder why America's children are among the unhealthiest of the first world countries? 


So, we took out our older-than-creation sofa and put in The Futon Shop's organic futon mattress.   There was no smell upon opening!  I can smell the faint scent of wool - which to me, is extremely soothing.  (I would do great having a sheep farm)  I can't tell you how very pleased we have all been with the organic futon!  I am not sure why I ever consider a sofa over a futon?  A great quality large futon is a must, in my opinion for Friday night movies, sleepovers for the kids and when company comes in to town!  


The Futon Shop has all-the-colors, sure to go with your family's style!
Absolute happiness! 


The Futon Shop has the same values and philosophy as I and other eco-minded moms and dads!  The Futon shop was gracious enough to let me try out one of their organic and sustainably and humanly harvested wool futons  - Oh. My. Gracious.  I kid you not, I have never been SO pleased with a bed or sofa - ever!  


The organic and wool mattress is thick, firm and stands up to my little one's constant playing (jumping off) on it - a healthy mattress indeed! 


A chilly, rainy day is the perfect time to unplug for coziness! 



Saturday Morning Relaxing!


Please visit The Futon Shop online or in stores all over California! 

The Futon Shop is giving away this healthy organic futon mattress - a double / full size -  values at $2399.99 and it is completely awesome! (the frame is not included) 


Please note - the futon shown in the pictures is covered with a futon cover!  The giveaway is for the  mattress itself.  The mattress is off-white, heavy (not light from cheap material that squishes down within two weeks) and so well-made - absolutely spectacular and no doubt will become your most favorite place in the house to relax! You're welcome.


 The giveaway is for US residents only.  We would like to ask that the winner would share a pic via social media (Instagram or Facebook) - 

The Futon Shop loves to see their futons in the wild!
