Body Friendly Furniture
Why Body Friendly Furniture?
Most modern furniture puts us in unhealthy positions which contribute to poor health and back pain. The alternative is furniture which puts you in healthy aligned positions which energize, tone and restore you as you work.
Why Movement Matters
The sedentary lifestyle has been found to cause major health problems sometimes called Metabolic Syndrome and Office Illness. Putting healthy movement into everyday life is the only way to alleviate the damage of prolonged chronic sitting.
There is nothing like the feeling of being alive and inspired rather than stuck at a desk all day. Our designs put you in energizing as well as restorative positions depending on your energy needs and type of activity.
Our designs are built with modular concepts as the cornerstone. Each piece has mulitple uses and can be combined with other pieces to create entirely new arrangements any time your needs or whims take you to a different place.

And third, as a Stand Up Desk.

This couch is composed of Eco Squares™ with railings, a Futon, and extra firm Queen and Standard Pillows with removable covers.

Japanese Living Room Suite
Floor seating is being rediscovered as a sleek and attractive design alternative especially for small spaces. Our Japanese Living Room Suite helps create a comfortable floor living environment. Suite includes four Zabutons with a variety of seats (two Zafus, one Peace Bench™ and one Smile Cushion™). Feel free to mix and match from our variety of floor seats to fit your needs.
The Tilt Seat™ is one of our most versatile products. The forward tilted angle aligns your spine for active sitting and deeper meditation while sitting at chair height. This chair provides similar benefits to floor sitting without going all the way to the floor. It is also used for several other purposes such as a floor sitting desk and a standing desk. Comes apart like a Chinese puzzle. Comes in three sizes and with optional cushion.
