Decorating your home with modern natural décor made without formaldehyde shouldn't be hard.
That's why we founded Healthier Homes in the first place. You won't find any medium density fiberboard (MDF) or flimsy particle board on this website. No strong solvent-based finishes, either. We don’t take shortcuts in vetting our organic modern decor for durability and natural quality, because our mission is to create better living through a healthier home.
Tip! Use contrasting styles
Go with a sustainable home decor aesthetic that updates your furnishings with contrasting styles. For example, if your sustainable home products are soft and neutral, without a lot of clean lines, go for more contemporary lines in your organic modern wall art. Mix and match your modern natural interior design styles by trying out all kinds of methods, techniques, and designs to see what fits your space. Remember that your space is yours to make unique, comfortable and inspirational.
Things to avoid in sustainable home décor
What goes into your home also goes into the air you breathe. Always avoid chemical flame retardants and products that contain formaldehyde, organic and chlorinated solvents, petroleum distillates, synthetic rubber compounds, and highly fluorinated compounds. These are some of the most common bad actors you’ll see in modern home products, and they can wreak havoc on your health if you’re exposed to them over a long period.

Tips for Choosing Organic Modern Décor, Organic Modern Wall Art & Ethically Made Home Goods
What is sustainable kitchenware?
Sustainable kitchenware refers to any dishes, glassware, silverware, and other kitchen surfaces or tools that are natural, eco-friendly, and completely nontoxic. These products come in all shapes, colors, and sizes and are made using materials with minimal industrial processing that will never off-gas or leach harmful chemicals into food.
These include 100 percent pure ceramics, natural woods such as olive wood and organic bamboo kitchenware, as well as other non toxic materials that are safe for the whole family. (Note: You’ll want to avoid most strand board bamboo kitchen products and cutting boards since they often contain glues with phenol formaldehyde.)
What Exactly is Organic Modern Decor?
Sustainable home décor with a modern look will have cleans lines, interesting natural textures, neutral colors, and natural materials. For home décor that’s sustainable as well as nontoxic, look for certifications such as SFC (Sustainable Furnishings Council), GOTS, and CertiPUR.
Organic decor fits into a variety of categories, from sustainable home products to eco friendly decoration and even organic modern wall art. Most organic modern decor is made using processes and materials that are far healthier for home occupants than traditional manufacturing methods.
Look for ecofriendly, fair trade home décor, which is made using untreated hard woods, mechanical joinery, metals, natural plant-based fabrics and more, that are free from chemicals like flame retardants and will not off-gas into your home or leach questionable substances into your skin.
Organic, Nontoxic & Sustainable – what’s the difference?
While nontoxic decor is often organic and sustainable as well, these labels have different goals: sustainable refers to the impact a product has on the environment, while nontoxic refers to the impact it has on the people who are using it. As such, we prioritize sustainable home décor and modern organic interior design pieces that safeguard the health and well-being of humans and pets first. We certainly care about the state of the natural world, and our number one concern at Healthier Homes is the health and well-being of people in their houses.
What Are the Benefits of Sustainable Home Decor?
The health benefits of modern organic decor are as many and varied as they are with all other types of healthy home furnishings. With chronic disease numbers on the rise, many studies have suggested that a toxic indoor living environment may be the cause, and these toxic indoor spaces are created by items in the home that off-gas dangerous volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
That’s just one reason why it’s so important to research and purchase ecofriendly decoration products made using untreated woods, metals, fabrics, and other natural materials such as woven rattan. These organic decor materials won’t usually have serious off-gassing potential, so you can rest easy knowing you’re creating your organic modern home in the best way possible.
Every Piece Matters.
When it comes to your healthy home, every piece, from the fair trade home décor to the sustainable home products, plays a role in the health and well-being of you and your family. So many of the products in our lives are made using toxic chemicals, and those chemicals linger in the products you purchase, which can even emit them into your home.
Imagine if every item in the room you’re sitting in right now were off-gassing hazardous volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Those gases can build up quickly inside modern living environments, which are built to be airtight for energy conservation purposes. Sadly, those very efforts might be contributing to putting your health at risk.
Fortunately, you have the power to take control of your own living environment to make conscious purchases for your healthier home.
What if You Want Organic Décor on the Outside, too?
Out of sight, out of mind, right? Not exactly. When trying to source eco-friendly decoration and sustainable home products for the outdoor areas of your home, we recommend remembering all the same principles outlined above.
Even though you’re not bringing these items inside the house, their material composition—not to mention their style—can still have an impact on the people who live there. That’s because every component of a healthy home has an impact, however small, whether inside or outside.
Look for outdoor furniture and décor without chemical fire retardants or stain repellants. Solid teak and acacia woods are wonderful for outdoor use and patina beautifully over time.
