Designing the Slobproof Way and A Giveaway!


We all love a beautiful home, we find inspiration all over and sometimes we can use it in our house and sometimes we can't. We either have kids, pets, husbands, wifes or other dilemma's to contend with or that don't make it practical in our homes. Well Interior Designer Debbie Wiener has a soulution for our dilemma's! She has an ingenious line of furniture in which she calls "Slobproof with Crypton." What is Slobproof you ask? It is comfortable, sustainable, chic, and just that "Slobproof!"

From the website:

It’s the fabric!

Crypton is a specially engineered fabric system with an integrated moisture barrier that promises - and delivers - permanent performance. No stains. No spills. No surprises. Impervious to the dirt and grime of everyday living, it resists whatever life can throw at it, remaining clean, dry, and beautiful. Life's too short to worry about spilled milk, errant markers or muddy paws! Finally, furniture designed for the way we really live. We call it mess-free, stress-free slobproof living!

It’s the furniture!

My “all made in the USA” seating line is environmentally friendly - manufactured with sustainable maple hardwood and fluorocarbon free foam. And it’s built to last with screwed, glued and corner-blocked frames, inner springs and luxury seat cushions that are guaranteed for life!

It's the style!

Simple and sized for city living or sprawling suburbs, I hand-selected each piece for comfort, versatility and durability. With so many colors, patterns and seating options, Slobproof! with Crypton fits in any lifestyle, in any home.

Slobproof facts:

-Slobproof! is a small, Maryland-based furniture and design company that is certified WBE - Women's Business Enterprise.

-All Slobproof! seating is made in the USA. All of our furniture frames are made in the USA. Not many manufacturers make 100% of their products in the USA, which is why we're so proud that we do!
-All Slobproof! fabrics are certified SCS Indoor Advantage™ Gold and complies with Section 01350 California standards. We offer a five-year warranty on our moisture barrier. What that means for you is that we absolutely stand by the statement that our fabric will remain spill, moisture, bacteria, and odor-free!
-All Slobproof! seating frames are Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) Approved. Our 100% kiln-dried maple hardwood frames come from forests approved by the sustainable forest initiative. Each frame is screwed, glued, corner-blocked and guaranteed for life! The glue that is used to reinforce our screwed and corner-blocked frames is water based and contains no harmful chemicals.
-100% of the materials used in Slobproof's frames and cushions come from the USA and most of the materials come from within a few miles of our North Carolina furniture factory, so that no questionable materials or hazardous materials are being used in the product, thereby minimizing our carbon footprint.
-Slobproof! cushions meet the highest environmental standards and include these materials:
-Ecru fabric: Down proof ticking is 100% cotton unbleached fabric.
-Regenerated Fiber: 100% recycled materials. Made from clear and white plastic bottles. This material is renewed into its original form, then reprocessed into fiber.
-Feather/Down: Feather and down are natural products. All of our feather and down are washed in an 8 - step process using biodegradable soaps which allow our fill to not only be natural, but also hypo-allergenic. All of our toss pillows are feather and down.
-Soy Foam: (seat cushions only) - Plant-based soy beans replace 20% of the foam with natural soy ingredients.
-Every material that is used in our cushions is chosen with the environment, the health and the comfort of our customers in mind!
-Our seat cushions come standard in 2.5lb foam core banded with polyester fiber. This cushion is then     encased in a down proof tick cover, offering superior, long-lasting seat comfort that's guaranteed for life.
-Slobproof! furniture comes with a lifetime warranty on the hardwood frame; a lifetime warranty on the 2.5lb seat cushion and a five year warranty on the fabric. You won't get this from any other seating manufacturer in the world.

Having a son and a dog, is messy, but when you throw me into the mix, it's bound to be a disaster!
