About Carolina Morning Since 1984 Carolina Morning™ has helped thousands of people around the world to turn their homes, offices, bedrooms and yoga spaces into healing sanctuaries. Our simple organic bedroom and living room furniture, office furniture, and eco yoga/meditation props are designed with the best natural materials, including organic cotton, eco-wool, chemical-free kapok, buckwheat hulls, sustainably harvested hardwoods, and non-toxic finishes.
Our expert design team has spent over thirty years evolving an eclectic, minimalist line of modular furniture and meditation props with powerful health-enhancing qualities not found anywhere else. Our designs are inspired from traditional floor based cultures such as Vedic, Taoist, and Native American who used the floor to create simple and elegant surroundings. We have developed a line of meditation and yoga props as well as minimalist modular furniture based on these same traditions.
On our quest for a simpler life and safer environment we became pioneers in what is now the Green Building movement. This design approach provides a different comfort that goes much deeper. Our products help you get in touch with your body, harnessing the power of breath and prana/chi/kundalini, to bring you closer to the earth and source/spirit.
We are a small business operating in Western North Carolina in a community called the South Toe River Valley or Celo. You get a sense of the beautiful place where we live in the painting that decorates our website, as well as our office. Painted by a friend to show many of our products, it depicts an actual place–the Cade’s Mountain Farm, which resides a short distance from Carolina Morning, and is a part of the South Toe community. The beautiful Black Mountain Range is seen in the distance.
This quality of mind and heart is the inspiration for meditation and for finding our own inner balance. We feel that harmony with nature, growing food without chemicals, and connecting with the land are a part of the solution to finding inner peace. We are located on Highway 80 South, right outside of Burnsville and 50 miles north of Asheville, North Carolina. It’s a beautiful drive to see us, and we love visitors
Our products are made from meticulously sourced organic, eco and/or recycled materials including recycled cotton, organic cotton, kapok, buckwheat, organic flax, 100% recycled wood non-toxic Medite 2 fiberboard, organic beeswax, pine resin, and linseed wood finish. We buy domestically produced and local/regional materials as often as possible.
We have eliminated most plastic from our packaging, and are diligently researching alternatives.
We employ LEAN-manufacturing techniques, which makes our operation super efficient and competitive even in the Global Economy. We are constantly working on reducing our energy needs. Our employees live nearby in a rural Appalachian region, preventing extra driving and helping the local economy.
