The family room couch is pretty much the epicenter of most people’s homes. I know it is in mine. A couch has to stand up to spills, grime and endless lounging, while also being comfortable enough to sleep on without being beyond expensive. But, the question of toxicity and couches was one thing that never really crossed my mind until I recently began to shop for a new one to replace the 10-year old one that had seen better days. Come to find out, most couches are doused with flame retardants that slowly release toxic chemicals into your home. Um, no thank you. So, off I went to find the best quality, family-friendly, yet affordable couches without flame retardants.
