Can your home be more than beautiful?

Absolutely. It can be healthy.

At BY DESIGN we truly care about our customers. We take the time to ensure your experience is exceptional. When starting with By Design I was thrilled to learn that all of our upholstery companies are GREEN! I’m excited to share this with all of you as it is something very near and dear to my heart. I love working for a company that backs a safer, healthier way of living. We want your home to be furnished with beautiful, custom pieces that are safe, functional and perfect for your family’s home. Because we care, we take pride in selling Norwalk Furniture in our store. Norwalk is an all American made, chemical free company based out of Ohio offering you a healthier and environmentally friendly home that you can be confident in.

Your Norwalk pieces are not only handcrafted by American suppliers and local artisans but are toxin free. Norwalk has eliminated toxic chemicals which has lead to improved fire safety by producing a chemical free flame retardant. Norwalk’s cushions are made from recycled plastics, all of which have been rigorously tested and certified to meet specific criteria in performance, content, and environmental stewardship.

Offering over 850 of the highest quality fabrics and leathers, Norwalk excels by sourcing from local factories and suppliers. Studies have shown that chemical flame retardants are toxic and are believed to cause hormone disruption, neurological and reproductive issues, and cancer in humans and animals. During the testing phase it was determined that flame retardant chemicals were in 94% of upholstery purchased after 2005. As a result Norwalk Furniture dropped toxic flame-retardant chemicals from its products and are proud to say that their company’s line meets the California’s new flame-smolder law TB-117-2013.

When you purchase furniture at by Design, you can feel confident that it will be beautiful… as well as a healthier choice for your family!

About the author: I’m a wife, mother of two boys and live in Waukee with my family and two puppies. When decorating my own home I am drawn towards natural light, light and airy spaces, and love anything blush! Lots of clean lines, neutrals (and of course comfort!) in a modern, casual style are my signature.
