Carolina Morning’s Sectional Eco-Sofa (aka Corner Group) has a sleek space-saving design, yet offers the seating capacity of full-sized upholstered couches. Its solid wood frame is modular and can be expanded or rearranged to become a chair/loveseat, sofa, coffee table, queen bed support, and more. The sofa part of the large sectional can also be used as a 1/2 queen bed by removing the back and side pillows; and the large sectional pieces can be moved together to create a regular queen-size bed.
Lining the Eco-Sofa’s removable, washable 8 oz. organic cotton canvas seat covers is an eco-wool felted barrier fabric. This wool layer provides fire retardance, moisture wicking, and temperature regulation. The eco-wool envelope is filled with kapok fiber that has been found to be free of chemical residues by third-party testing. Kapok is a soft, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly fiber that comes from the seed pod of the kapok tree (Ceiba pentandra). It is grown without herbicides, pesticides and chemical fertilizers because the tree and its fruit grow well in poor soils and are not bothered by pests. The fiber is breathable, and it can be reused for generations without developing mold or decaying, though it will biodegrade outdoors over time. One of the few sustainable rainforest crops, Kapok has been a prized possession for centuries…used by gurus, saints and spiritual masters who marveled at its unique characteristics.
The Eco-Sofa’s seating surface will be firm and supportive after the kapok settles down to a thickness of about 4″. The kapok filling can be re-fluffed and redistributed to eliminate body impressions. And if the futon becomes too firm over the years it can be easily and inexpensively replaced. Or, for a softer and more uniform seating surface, you can order a natural latex or a latex/wool/cotton cushion to insert into the cover, instead of the kapok.
EcoSquares, which form the frame, are constructed from poplar wood and finished with a non-toxic whey-based product from Vermont Natural Coatings. The legs are 16″, and you can easily shorten them to get the perfect fit for your family. Our standard configuration for the sectionals includes pillows on the back, but it can be ordered with yoga bolsters for back support instead of pillows. Pillows offer a little more height and seating depth than yoga bolsters, and they provide softer support for your back.
