SAN FRANCISCO, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Futon Shop, America's largest futon retailer, is pleased to announce that they are celebrating their 40th anniversary after opening operations in 1976. Today, the company has 11 retail showrooms in California and distributes to customers across the U.S. from their e-commerce website. The Futon Shop recently relaunched their website in April 2016 to provide customers a new and improved shopping experience and retail platform.
The Futon Shop is an industry leader in the creation of chemical free and organic furniture. The mission-driven company aims to set the standards of excellence for furniture manufacturers and retailers alike by focusing on the highest standards of craftsmanship and transparency through all aspects of their products and company. From their manufacturing floor in San Francisco to their stores throughout California, their end goal remains consistent - to empower their customers and community to live a comfortable and healthy life in their homes. The breastcancerfund.org has vetted The Futon Shop's chemical-free line of futons and mattresses as an environmentally healthy furniture option for staying cancer free and eliminating toxins in your home.
Most bedding manufacturers looking to dominate the market create inexpensive mattresses and futons using polyurethane foams and polyesters, which are bi-products of refining oil into gasoline. These bi-products create a very cheap way to create a foam core in mattresses and futons to lower the retail price. The problem is that polyurethane foam breaks down and the chemicals become airborne and inhaled by children and adults alike creating very harmful health issues that are just being exposed today.
"The Futon Shop maintains a high level of eco-consciousness to strive for a healthier future for our planet and our country," says Suzanne Diamond, founder and CEO of The Futon Shop. "We work tirelessly to bring the best organic and eco-friendly futons, sofa beds and organic furniture options for the health and comfort of our customers."
Diamond started the company after having children and searching unsuccessfully for a chemical-free mattress. Having lived a macrobiotic lifestyle, Diamond turned to the Japanese way of making organic futons. Once she made some for her family, she put a sign in the local health food store and the orders started to come in. Diamond credits her community's desire for natural and healthy products for her continued business growth, longevity, and success.
The Futon Shop offers a variety of organic custom cushions, pillows, bedding, mattresses, toppers, and futons at factory direct prices. Mattresses are available from crib size mattresses to king size mattresses. The company even offers organic, chemical-free pet beds. Serving a number of customers across the U.S., The Futon Shop prides themselves on the accuracy and quality shipping of their products. By using compression packaging and reinforced structured containers, they ensure everything arrives safe and sound. The company has shipped to more than 2 million customers with a lower than one percent damage rate. To view the products offered, make a purchase, and learn more, visit TheFutonShop.com.
