I have gotten fed up with my bed. You see I have had my mattress and box spring on nothing but a metal bed frame for a couple years now and I think it time to get an actual bed again with headboard and footboard. That way the mattresses won’t keep sliding up and down and my pillows won’t end up getting stuck between the mattress and the wall and in general I just won’t have to have a wrestling match every night.
So I have been doing a bit of research on the most eco-friendly alternative. Since looking for wood beds made from “organic” trees would be an unfruitful search I decided to look at sustainable beds or eco furniture.
These products are becoming more widely available although the price is usually a bit more grand than I would want to pay a good bed will last.
One place I found that looks very promising is the Green Furniture section at Wholesale Furniture Brokers (WFB). They have a strikingly attractive line of beds and bedroom sets that are very eco friendly and not likely to bankrupt me. Their beds are designed with their mission mind to create a healthier, sustainable environment.
I am a retro person. Remember my powder blue and bubblegum pink bathrooms? Well, WFB has a retro collection that I really fell in love with.
The 4 PC Retro Cappuccino Modern Platform Bedroom Furniture Set by Lifestyle Solutions caught my eye. Other than the fact that this set looks very sixties with a modern edge I love the fact that it is reasonably priced AND healthier for the environment. The main differences that highlight Lifestyle Solutions is the manufacturing process and use of renewable sources. Their manufacturing process has been certified for compliance with International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO) guidelines for sustainable management of Natural Tropical Forest. These standards bring you high quality bedroom furniture sets constructed from plantation grown imported hardwood ensuring sources that are constantly renewed.
Of course wouldn’t you know while I was checking out the beds I also happened to see the Aruba Oyster Micro Fiber Convertible Sofa. It is made according to the same guidelines as the bed so it is sustainable as well and it is a gorgeous sofa! I love the casual chic look and also the versatility of being able to use it as a bed or a sofa. This would be perfect for our basement guest room and the price is so reasonable.
Pretty much all I have in my area is Ashley Furniture and if I go there I am sure to pay a fortune and walk away with furniture that is not friendly to the environment. Wholesale Furniture Brokers is kind to the planet and the pocketbook. What a great find!
You don’t have to give up good design, style, or your budget to go green with your home furniture anymore.
