Natural can mean bold and beautiful. When using natural-fiber fabrics such as cotton, wool or linen, buy organic when you can. Otherwise, the harm caused by chemicals and pesticides used to grow and manufacture the fabrics may outweigh the advantages.

Organic cotton comes in many forms: high end, indie designed or straight from a web retailer. Designer Nina Jizhar upholstered the wingback chair above in an organic cotton she designed.
