Rethink. Recycle. Reuse. {pure organic}

Recycle. Reuse.

Organic living isn't just about purchasing new goods from sustainable manufacturers, it's about being creative and recycling and reusing existing materials when possible to create a pure beauty in home interiors. It's okay, reclaim your grandmother's iron bed for your guest room and don't feel a day of guilt about it. It's all about balance. {lifestyle photo by scott morton}.
The {pure organic} lifestyle: the beauty of pure with the balance of nature.


When it comes to upholstery, true-vintage is not always the most {pure} nor does it offer the most comfort, so look to true-green upholstery manufacturers who are at the cutting edge of sustainability + design.

The Dinora Sofa by Cisco Brothers, when customizing with Inside Green™ technology, is true sustainable style. Made with FSC Certified Wood, 100% pure rubber latex for cushions and padding, jute and latex webbing for support, and certified wool and organic cotton: this sofa is completely petroleum free + biodegradable. The CB selection of natural fabrics range from organic cottons to 100% wool, plus a collection of recycled fabrics: all are washed for softness with earth-friendly detergents. Cisco Brothers. True ~ organic beauty.

"It doesn't need to be perfect, it just has to be real and self-sustained." ~ Francisco Pinedo.
The story behind the man + his company. Originally from the small rural town of Jalisco, Mexico, at the age of 13, Cisco and his family moved to South Central Los Angeles in search of a better life. In high school, Cisco discovered his passion for upholstery while working part-time in a small shop. In his early 20s, he began making custom furniture for neighbors out of his garage. Eventually, with the help of his wife Alba and his family {brothers}, he created one of the most designer driven, custom upholstery manufacturing companies in "the biz."

Today, his main passion: creating organic beauty. He is the first designer to create a 100% pure FSC certified sustainable upholstered furniture collection. For more innovative {pure organic} designs and to learn more about Inside Green™ technology visit
