Is it more ideal to use synthetic materials for constructing furniture rather than using the real thing?

    Given the propensity of Americans to waste items or turn over their consumer goods, I would guess that natural materials would be better.  If something is going to end up in a landfill (which it shouldn’t — if you take care of your furniture you should be able to re-sell it), it is better that it not be foreign to the environment.

    It is far better to use natural materials.  Most synthetic materials offgas toxic materials even if they are just sitting there.  That also ties in to the previous answer, you don’t want to dump toxic synthetic materials in to the environment.
