The changes we make today, change the future. 

Porter Designs is committed to sustainability by partnering with manufacturers and factories using sustainable processes. We partner with organizations that follow social and humanitarian practices, sourcing our materials ethically. This allows us to create high quality, heirloom furnishing solutions that customers can keep longer, reducing the amount of furniture found in the landfill.


We are dedicated to safety. All materials in our product meet or exceed industry standards. All fabrics are tested and certified by our suppliers to comply with UFAC1 fire retardancy requirements. We meet the California TB 117-2013 requirement and this is verified on the law label that attaches to the furniture.

We are active members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, following their guidelines for sustainable practices and healthy manufacturing and distribution. 


Quality and durability are at the core of all of our products. We focus on sustainably sourced, kiln dried, handmade hardwoods from India. Our heirloom quality furniture is built to last for generations.

Our Good Earth Collection features solid corner block construction, heavy gauge recycled springs, recycled foam and dacron and packaging that is recycled and recyclable/biodegrade. with a collection like Good Earth, we ensure our products are not only built to last, but will be a safe and healthy option for your home as well as our Earth.

When developing the Good Earth Seating Collection, we took our commitment to sustainability to the core. Using fabrics made from recycled plastics or sustainable tanneries, springs made from recycled metal, and recycled and recyclable/biodegradable packing, we are able to create a new standard in sustainable seating. Good Earth is leading the way by using every possible sustainable component. And we won’t stop researching sustainable alternatives. It is important that our upholstery is not only made well, sits well, but is also long lasting and affordable. 

35% of the fabrics are made from recycled water bottles

Top grain leather is sustainably produced to the highest European standards with a Gold Star rating

Packaging is made from biodegradable plastic wrap and recycled/recyclable cardboard

Seat backs use repurposed foam made with leftover foam remnants and recycled dacron


We focus on sustainably sourced, kiln dried, handmade hardwoods from India which provide a truly one-of-a-kind piece that offers durable heirloom quality, while supporting long term solutions to the effects of climate change in the countries where we source.
