Eco-friendly, green furniture


Although, the terms “organic”, “sustainability” and “eco-friendly” are appreciated in medicine and food, the same principles are rarely placed on the furniture and decorative items. It is also true that a lot of furniture is made with toxic materials and unhealthy finishes. The bed we sleep on, the sofas and couches, are made with chemicals and materials that are harmful to our health and environment. The good news is that several manufacturers are producing various sustainable products, with methods and procedures that save energy and do not pollute the environment. 


Minimalist children's beds


Children's beds come in many styles, shapes and forms and in the market you can find a large variety of single beds for kids. Many of them have an eye-catching style, like for example the theme beds or the loft beds. Kids love colors and extraordinary designs and usually opt for those pieces of furniture that are impressive but not always practical, safe or sturdy. Sometimes, beds with impressive design and excessive decoration cost more to manufacture and the manufacturer chooses to compromise the quality in order to lower the cost.

It is true, that many interior designers suggest for the kid's bedroom, the purchasing of a minimalist bed, with neutral and unisex style. The advantages of a minimalist bed are mostly two:

-      A bed with a simple style will withstand changes to setting and taste as your child grows. Most of these beds are suitable for the toddler, the teenager, even for the student.  

-      Minimalist beds are multi-functional. For a kid, the bed is not only a place to sleep, but also a place to play, to daydream, to read a book, to jump into, to seat with friends. So, the design of the bed should be as simple as possible and allow the child to use it as a sofa or as a trampoline.
