The Milton rocking chair

The Milton custom organic mcm chair by Carla & Chandler Pyle of Living Home Furniture

The Milton rocking chair

The Milton spring rocker was the debut chair in our organic Living Home Furniture line in 2008. Named after my grandfather, the design recalls his favorite chair – at least as I remember it from early childhood. He used to sit in it as he enjoyed the Boston Red Sox on one of the first color TVs in the 60s. The cover fabric is beautiful hand dyed, hand woven silk from a weaver’s co-op in Thailand. The upholstery includes local organic wool batting and felt, 100% natural latex foam, organic cotton/bamboo batting &  hemp canvas. The arms and base are FSC certified solid walnut, finished with pure tung oil (no petroleum distillates) and beeswax.

Although the Living Home Furniture line is no longer in production, we continue to offer natural and organic alternatives in upholstery materials.

About the Author

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →
