Devra sent us an email: HELP! I've got an unprecedented (for me, at least) opportunity to make an investment in sustainable furniture, and what I really want to do is find a good bed. I've dedicated hours and days to combing designers and showrooms, and I've come to two conclusions: people who buy sustainable furniture either live in trees or on abandoned ships. I love the idea of reclaimed wood and sustainable materials, but is there something out there that would fit into my decidedly non-arborial (or maritime) aesthetic?
Many, many thanks,
Don't despair! There are beautiful green beds out there, we promise. And we're really glad you're planning on investing in green furniture; kudos for making that decision.
The bed pictured above is the Built-in Day Bed by Woodshanti. Woodshanti is one of our favorite resources for green furniture. While it sounds like you're in the market for a full-sized bed, this day bed is just an example of what Woodshanti can do with FSC-certified wood and natural finishes. They collaborate with their clients, which would give you the opportunity to design the bed of your dreams.
But they're just one of many resources ... Any other suggestions?
