It was very exciting to see the front page of the Business section of the Columbus Dispatch in late March and read our name in an article (http://www.dispatch.com/news/
We were honored that Sarah Lagrottteria and Tricia Wheeler, the new restaurant's owners, had chosen to purchase wooden tables created by our talented craftsmen from Ohio-sourced wood, but didn’t know that collaboration would receive any attention.
The mission of Flowers & Bread is to inject simple pleasures into their customer’s lives by igniting their senses with the beauty of nature and the wonders of healthy, tasty food. They also offer baking and floral classes, too.
Thanks to Sarah and Tricia for including T.Y. Fine Furniture in their new and exciting venture aimed at offering unique ways of living a healthful existence. We are doubly excited to become their neighbor soon, as we will be opening our new, expanded showroom in Clintonville at 4555 North High Street on May 1.
According to a study recently released by Duke University, EWG and other universities, the level of flame retardants in the bodies of adults and children has increased drastically between 2002 and 2015. According to the study, levels of chlorinated Tris, or TDCIPP, rose fifteen fold in adults while levels in children were found to have increased four times in that same time frame. While this isn’t the first time levels of flame retardants in humans has been researched, this study marks the first time the outcomes have revealed such dramatic shifts over a long period of time.
Flame retardants are used in everyday products to slow or stop the spread of fire. They’re commonly found in car seats, upholstered furniture, televisions, computers, clothing, baby toys and much more. While not all flame retardants are harmful, and there are Federal guidelines designed to limit the amount of the chemical in products, overexposure can be harmful to humans. That's because they have been linked to health challenges such as cancer, hormonal changes and even cause fertility issues.
Fortunately, customers of T.Y. Fine Furniture don't have to worry about flame retardants in anything purchased from us. That's because we don't sell anything containing flame retardants, or any chemical or unnatural material, for that matter. We are dedicated to promoting healthful, hypoallergenic living so our customers don't have to worry about anything unnatural contaminating them or their homes. That includes our hypoallergenic mattresses, bedding, pillows, leather recliners, luxurious massage chairs or custom-made wood furniture from us.
We wouldn’t have it any other way.
Even before Doris Day and Rock Hudson made pillow talk the rage, people have found comfort and enjoyment from pillows of all shapes, sizes and textures. Pillows are also an easy and relatively inexpensive way to spruce up a décor, introduce pop and color into an area or just be sure there’s somewhere cozy and comfortable for people to prop their head.
With all of that in mind, T.Y. Fine Furniture’s pillow inventory has expanded dramatically. For example, we now offer over a dozen organic pillow options in various sizes. We’ve also increased our offerings to include pillows whose covers are made from wool, kapok, cotton, shredded latex, solid latex and even Verona Blends made from a mixture of these ingredients.
Colors and shapes vary, too, so you needn’t worry you’ll be going home with a ho-hum square pillow. Because we know that sometimes pillows get dirty, we made
sure to offer only pillows whose covers are removable and machine-washable.
Our pillows range in price from $79 to $169 , so their cost is as soft and welcoming as they are.
Come on in to experience the comfort of these amazingly welcoming pillows.
You’ll feel like your head is sleeping on cotton.
Providing ways for our customers to live a comfortable and natural life is at the heart of T.Y. Fine Furniture’s mission. So when we learned about a luxurious couch constructed with the finest in natural fibers, we knew it was right for us. And hopefully, for you, too.
The Verona Sofa offers elegant and organic seating complete with cushions constructed of natural latex wrapped in luxurious organic wool batting. The finest in certified organic materials such as cotton duck, sturdy hemp and a soft hemp-cotton blend comprise the cushions, so you know every moment spent on this unique creation will be soft and luxurious. While this natural sofa is formal enough for a living room, its simple elegance makes it ideal for any décor. Not only that, seat cushions can be customized to the owner’s preference and, as such, are available as either firmer or softer.
The Verona Sofa features other characteristics that make it stand out among its lesser peers. For example, materials involved in creating the Verona include:
- Certified sustainable solid hardwood (maple)
- GOTS-certified organic upholstery (in hemp, cotton duck or a hemp-cotton blend)
- Cradle-to-Cradle certified Natural Talalay latex foam
- Natural jute webbing
- Natural coir (coconut fiber with natural latex)
- Zero-VOC natural linseed oil
- Low-VOC water-based stain with linseed coating
Moreover, the authentic Verona Sofa uses no flame retardants, formaldehyde glue, cardboard, metal coils, particle board, plywood or veneer. All natural means just that, so no fake fillers are used in these beauties.
Every Verona Sofa also enjoys unparalleled attention to construction details such as Mortise-and-Tenon joinery and removable seat and back cushions. Each Verona Sofa is built by hand by Savvy Rest, a highly regarded manufacturer of organic mattresses based in central Virginia.
Not only is this amazing sofa constructed from the finest in natural fibers and materials, it is available in several colors, too. Selections include Lavender, Navy, Brown, Black, White, Honey and Sweet Potato. Yes, Sweet Potato!
We look forward to welcoming you to the shop and showing you the amazing luxuries this wonderful organic sofa offers.
The changing colors of the leaves and pumpkins adorning people’s doorstops means that autumn is upon us. The cooler temperatures are a welcome relief from summer’s humidity, but when sweater weather is upon us, those frigid days of winter aren’t far behind.
When the skies darken earlier, people often take the cue and go to bed earlier in the night than they might in the summer. And what better way to get cozy and relaxed then a wonderful, welcoming organic mattress!
T.Y. Fine Furniture stocks several different organic mattresses to cater to our customer’s varying desires of mattress softness and thickness. Or, if you’re not in the market for a new mattress but still crave the comfort of an allergen-free sleep experience, we also offer organic mattress toppers ranging from twin size all the way to California King.
We have partnered with Naturepedic because not only are their products manufactured with top-of-the-line organic materials, the company is also dedicated to healthful living. For example, all Naturepedic products are tested by independent third-party laboratories and certified according to the Greenguard Gold Certification Program. Naturepedic itself has earned Greenguard’s “GOLD” Certification, meeting the most stringent standard.
We offer various Naturepedic organic mattresses to fit any size budget. For example, mattresses from the Economic Organic Sleep (EOS) series are designed for luxury and comfort while also keeping an eye on practicality. Its multilayer zippered construction allows users to customize the layers in the mattress, swap out layers and even change the feel of the mattress years later. And with a 20-year warranty, Naturepedic owners enjoy many years of comfort on their mattress.
Naturepedic’s Organic Luxury Series features heirloom quality construction and materials including organic cotton fabric and filling, organic latex and organic wool. Its coils are hand-assembled and topped with a comfort layer of supportive organic latex for a delightfully luxurious feel. The mattress’s quality constructive ensures isolation of movement and pressure point relieving comfort designed to contour to the curves of the bodies sleeping on it.
If a new mattress or mattress cover aren’t in your plans but you’re still looking for an extra dose of comfort, Naturepedic’s organic cotton and waterproof protector pads, organic cotton quilted mattress pads or organic cotton luxury sheets might be what you’re looking for.
