Eco-friendly furniture

January 30th 2013 07:51
Awarded one of the "Web's Best" online retailers of Green Furniture (Eco-Friendly Furniture), Inmod.com offers a full range of furniture built from sustainable wood, bamboo and other environmentally safe materials. Using the wood from trees that have been specifically planted for use in the creation of wood based products, and which have been exposed to minimal or no ecologically unsafe chemicals, Inmod offers a full range of eco-friendly furniture that will please even the most design conscious and environmentally friendly connoisseur.

Eco-friendly furnishings are furniture products for the home and office that contribute to a sustainable environment. These "green" products include both soft furnishings such as sofa covers and hard furnishings such as sofa frames. Eco-friendly furnishings are becoming more and more popular as we look for ways to cut down on air pollution as well as pollution in our land fills.

Eco-friendly furnishings for the home and office use recycled and recyclable materials down to the last detail. Glues and dyes are non-toxic as are foams. Fabrics made from items such as recycled drink containers may be used. Today, eco-friendly cubicles, dividers, desks and desk chairs can all be produced for the office. All the furnishings for the home environment can also be made in an eco-friendly way from sofas and tables to accessories such as hemp pillows and organic cotton drapes.

It has gotten easier to find great furniture with style and value, and that also goes easier on the planet. For example, EcoSystems' Glass Table has ingenious Snug-It Connectors that allow for their high quality furniture to be shipped flat (saving space), and assembled without tools. They also have a variety of wood materials for any budget, ranging from FSC-certified bamboo to reclaimed teak. Finishes and materials are low VOC to protect indoor air quality.

The "organic" designation doesn’t exist in the creative furniture category in the same way it's used in labeling food and clothing. While some items will have the word organic in the product name or description, organic alone isn’t the be-all, end-all when it comes to furnishing your home with eco-friendly materials.

Start with this guide to what’s out there in eco-friendly furniture, décor and furnishings, from organic fabrics and fills to certified ecologically harvested wood, bamboo, nontoxic finishes, fair trade, local, artisan-crafted or reclaimed finds.

Vintage and antique furniture row are two of the most eco-friendly choices you can make for furnishing a home. There’s no hard and fast distinction for when furniture becomes vintage; to some people anything that’s old is vintage; others argue that items need to be at least 20 years old.
