Our journey started in 2016 thanks to a lucky encounter in Sweden. Immersed during a few months in this Scandinavian country, we felt the need to keep this link with nature that was deeply anchored in us, bringing love and tranquility.
We then decided to start a company that reconnects the city-dwellers to nature and allows everybody to find back this flame that exists in each of us.
That is why we offer our furniture Natuco. Pieces of furniture with a soul. Our biggest inspiration is the beauty of nature and its living systems that we integrate into each one of them.
Our first piece of eco-furniture Lombrico adopts a natural system that has proven its worth in nature for years: worm composting. We have adjusted this method to our homes in the city to bring a concrete solution to one of the biggest environmental issues, the management of organic waste in the city.
A simple alternative born from the complexity of nature.

Natuco’s mission as an eco company is to reconnect the city-dwellers to nature by offering a range of ecological pieces of furniture that invite nature into our homes.
Natuco is a project through which we commit as actors of a sustainable transition for tomorrow’s cities. Allowing at the same time to make our homes in the city greener and let nature into our flats and in our hearts.
We also want to show that it is possible to act for the environment as a company of the future. We combine at the same time the economical interest, ecology, and social topics. Creativity, innovation, and motivation are built on trust, open-mindedness, respect for the other and the planet.
This is our culture, at Natuco.
Since the beginning, environmental responsibility is at the core of natuco’s activity. We commit to follow a responsible approach for the environment, from the conception of our furniture to their use. That is why we use innovative, lasting and environmentally responsible materials.
Natuco commits to responsible production by collaborating with French local actors. Our worm composter pieces of furniture are made by us and in partnership with partners from the Rhône-Alpes region in France that involve their knowledge and their long experiences in the production of each piece. This proximity allows us to promise you the best quality of our pieces of furniture.
