We always have one eye open for new items that are easy on the environment as well as being well-made enough that they serve as good long-term furniture investments (which retain their Craigslist cachet when it's time for them to move along). This is why we were excited to learn that EcoTots (the folks behind the extremely popular easel
and play table
) is about to launch an entire line of bedroom furnishings for children in the 5-to-10 age group, starting with the Surfin Twin Bed pictured above...Made from 100% formaldehyde-free, FSC-certified real wood, and featuring eco-friendly, non-toxic finishes, all pieces are designed to be assembled quickly. Each piece comes in your choice of four finishes: natural, cocoa, fire, and leaf.
The line contains nine new pieces, whose curved lines mirror their surfing-inspired names (such as the Big Kahuna Bookshelf and the Bonsai Book Caddy). Here are a few of our favorite items:
