Like that comfy-looking chair I’m sitting in?

Let’s pretend it’s part of La-Z Boy’s EcoComfort line -- a pleasing harbinger that more mainstream furnishing manufacturers are moving towards the green light. For the line, La-Z Boy -- America’s largest maker of upholsterefurniture -- is unrolling both eco-sensible fabrics and cushions. The company’s Oeko-Tex certified EcoComfort fabrics are made from recycled materials and plastic bottles and can be found in over 30 colors and patterns. The 20 percent soy-based EcoComfort cushions are offered with two different La-Z Boy styles: The Carlyle upholstered recliner (rght), and the Larson reclining sofa.

Kudos to La-Z Boy for proving -- first with the Todd Oldham-designed line and now with EcoComfort  -- that iconic doesn’t necessarily have to mean staid.
