The furnishings we choose for our homes are supposed to make us feel good: to inspire and entice, to create comfort or elicit joy. To say that we “love” a particular item we use, see or appreciate every day is to acknowledge a complex, and often highly personal, set of positive associations that we have with it. But in order to feel truly good about what goes into their homes, an increasing number of consumers are asking questions about their new furnishings that go well beyond the usual inquiries regarding provenance, history and materials. Increasingly, these consumers also want to feel secure that the item that brings them so much joy, day after day, hasn’t created distress for others on its long path to production.
