The stylish look of a platform bed has a simple elegance appreciated by all ages. For a child, a teen, or an adult, the look is often sought-after, regardless of the theme or other style influences. But what about contemporary eco-friendly standards?
Now that we’re using words like “renewable” and “sustainable” along with scarier terms such as “off-gassing”, the question of a bed’s green-ness can be just as important to many designers and homeowners as the aesthetic quality itself.
Fortunately, going green with your style choices just got a bit easier. Look for GreenGuard certification on a growing selection of bedroom and household furniture, all strictly scrutinized, starting with the wood, finishing with the stains and veneers.
For example, the 2nd Nature collection from Stanley Furniture’s Young America line is stylish, affordable, and GreenGuard certified. Parents of infants or toddlers will be pleased to know that the 2nd Nature collection includes cribs as well as platform beds.
Add an organic mattress and organic linens to your GreenGuard certified bed for a complete eco-friendly sleeping experience. This can be a great choice for earth advocates and allergy sufferers alike.
