Alternatives to sofa - daybed?

losaltosmomJanuary 21, 2013
Hi! My husband read a recent article on New York Times about the adverse effects of sofa fire retardant chemicals (chemicals required by law / TB 117 in California) on young children and he wants to find an alternative to sofas/ upholstered furniture.

We saw online that a mom used a wood daybed frame, organic mattress, organic pillows to make a couch. There are also wood futons with organic mattresses.

Do you have any other ideas? The organic sofas without fire retardants cost $5000+ each.

Any ideas for sofa alternatives and suggestions to make daybed into sofa would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

There are some fairly snazzy daybeds around at various prices, starting with Ikea at the inexpensive end.

Please do not mind but now a days we have stopped living , just a article in N.Y.T , And we Panic , when I was studying In England I read a Graffiti that read The Greatest Cause of Stress Today is that We are Alive , so as long as we live we will have stress ; but we do not let go off the Life inside us , the spark is always there so don't pay heed to such small things , be safe , Over Hygiene and Excess Information is Killing us ! Lol , Do not Sweat the small stuff .
