Ethically Sourced, Fair Trade, Earth Friendly, Sustainable, and Green are all words that get tossed around a lot in todays saturated, consumer market. A lot of us are familiar with these terms when it comes to buying things like cleaning supplies, where the options for organic and non-toxic are becoming more and more accessible. But how do these trendy words translate when it comes to decorating your home? At Coveted Home we take great pride in seeking out product lines that are in line with our values. Here are some of the brands we are proud to work with, giving you the opportunity to dwell in a more natural home.
