In the words of Marlee Matlin, “The earth does not belong to us. We belong to the earth.” It is always in our best interest to be conscious of the Earth and take care of it for future generations to enjoy over the years. Earth Day has taken place every year on April 22nd since 1970 when the birth of the modern environmental movement started. Today, this special day continues to show support for the protection of our environment with new concerns and ideas. Now that we have given you a little history about Earth Day, we would like to highlight eco-friendly pieces of furniture that we carry for you to bring a sense of Earth’s nature into your home. These items focus on the absolute natural beauty of the wood for a variety of rooms in an apartment or house setting.
Carpentry Bedroom Set
The Carpentry Bedroom Set brings warm and earthy tones to your bedroom as you embrace nature. The construction is solid pine wood in its natural brown tone with an eco-friendly water-based finish that gives off a smooth feel. The wood used in the manufacturing process comes from a renewable forest in Brazil, where for every tree cut, two new ones are planted. The wood is also kiln-dried by the vendor, using 100% solid wood for an ecological manufacturing process.
Jane Patio Set
The Jane Patio Set is another eco-friendly set that is impeccable for Earth Day by adding nature to your backyard. The construction is soft brown Eucalyptus wood with a plank style design. The manufacturer produces FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified furniture. This means that the native wood originates from a forest that is managed responsibly and is then manufactured through an eco-friendly process.
Lastly, in a video above from one of our vendors, you will see how wood is transformed during the manufacturing process through an environmentally friendly design.
Tino White Crib
The Tino White Crib adds a beautiful visual to a baby nursery. The construction includes pure white and natural toned European engineered wood with a laminated finish. This product is made in an FSC certified facility like the Jane Patio Set mentioned above. The special care used makes this piece eco-friendly.
Amariz Green Crib
The Amariz Green Crib is an eco-friendly crib designed for your baby nursery. This piece is also made in the same FSC certified facility with laminated European engineered wood construction. The crib stands out from the other products mentioned as it features stone gray on the edges, mint green on the side panels, and pure white on the rails for a three-tone contrast that is more modern than natural.
Montana Natural Coffee Table
The Montana Natural Coffee Table allows you to make a living room statement with nature’s unique design. The base of the table is crafted from the roots of a teak true, making each table one of a kind with the imperfections and knots of the wood a signature of the wood’s natural beauty. The teak is taken from a forest that is monitored and managed for sustainability, making this piece eco-friendly for you to add a part of the outdoors to your home.
Elemental Coffee Table
The Elemental Coffee Table seen here pays homage to its name by bringing elements of nature to your very own living room. The glass top is placed over a base made of natural driftwood trunks for a one of a kind finish, as no two bases will be exactly the same due to the natural imperfections of the wood. Driftwood is itself a natural eco-friendly material, as it is wood that has been washed onto a shore or beach by something such as waves, tides or even wind. The beautiful side table is made from teak wood like the previous image for another addition of the environment to your house.
Montana Console Table
The Montana Console Table is an earthy piece you may consider adding to your entryway. The construction is completely unique solid teak wood that is about sixty-years-old with a natural beautiful grain pattern that adds a peaceful touch to your home. Once again, the teak used is taken from a forest that is sustainable.
Montauk Natural Nightstand
The Montauk Natural Nightstand adds a soothing rustic design to a youth bedroom. The construction features solid pine wood that is distressed with a light natural tone. This piece is made from reforestation wood from a sustainable forest in Brazil, ensuring that each item is eco-friendly to use in your home.
Montauk Gray Platform Bed
The Montauk Gray Platform Bed is a contrast to the Montauk Natural Nightstand and can be used in either a guest or youth bedroom. The construction remains the same with distressed solid pine wood but instead features a natural gray finish. The wood used is also from the same sustainable forest in Brazil so it is also considered friendly for the environment.
