Eco-Friendly Mojuhlar Flatpack Furniture

When Ed Reynolds saw how much used furniture was ending up in landfills in the United States, he decided to do something about it, and started a new furniture company that would make furniture that simply used less material, took up less space, and could be used for a multitude of different reasons and rooms, so that it would be easier to reuse or sell. He wrote about it on his site, saying:

“Most modular furniture today primarily serves only one functional use, like modular shelving for storage, or modular sofas for seating. I wanted to design a system that could be reconfigured to serve multiple functional uses and continue to adapt as needs and spaces change.”

His flatpack furniture is very cool, modern and super stylish. The company, called Mojuhlar, makes their furniture from top quality Baltic birch plywood which has feen finished with a Wilsonart laminate. Then, they drill a pattern of holes into the pieces so that they can be fastened together in a number of different ways, creating tons of opportunities for variety. They even use a special kind of screw that fits flush with the wood so that you don’t have the issue of exposed screw heads.

Through the end of this article, readers will gain some tips on how to find eco-friendly and economical furniture.

Pieces of furniture that are made from organic resources such as wood, timber, grasses and other natural materials are what we refer to as eco-friendly furniture. Wicker furniture such as tables made of flat timber, wooden cabinets and seating furniture such as wicker bar stools are just some of the best samples of eco-friendly items. Eco-friendly products are made from organic materials, meaning, by the end of its service, furniture pieces will just decompose without compromising the environment’s sustainability.

Another method of determining if a furniture is eco-friendly or not is by scrutinizing its production process. Are the processes in manufacturing detrimental to environment? Are there any toxic materials produced during the production process? If your answer to either of the questions is yes, the furniture is not qualified as an eco-friendly furniture.

Simple actions such as using eco-friendly products are great way in which we can contribute to saving the mother Earth. Nature friendly actions are geared towards lifestyle improvements while leaving our natural surroundings untouched and free from any harm. By choosing eco-friendly furniture, you were not only saving environment but also creating a specific style for your home decoration. By opting for wicker furniture, wooden and bamboo based furnishings, you are already one-step closer to a casual and comfortable home living. The choice of furniture to be incorporated within your existing home furnishings can interpret and give personality to your home.

Choosing eco-friendly furniture does not necessarily mean being limited to the nature-loving character. In today’s market, there are many variations of furniture to choose from. Such variety allows people to create contemporary, modern, classical or casual home decoration depending on their preference. Using the colors of nature makes a design that is always pleasing to our eyes, just as nature relaxes everyone.

Since more people are now concerned about sustainability, the market of eco-friendly furniture rises swiftly. Being a market-driven product, eco-friendly furniture can now be found anywhere whether in virtual or physical stores, just like how usual furniture is sold in the market. Buyers can pick their preferred style, construction material and some added features. Some actual furniture shops are providing their customers the opportunity to customize their chosen furniture.

The awareness about eco-friendly furniture still needs some more marketing. For those who are not yet very familiar with this kind of furniture, don’t be confused with wood furniture making as cause of deforestation because responsible manufacturers of eco-friendly furniture do plant and grow their resource materials, then replace those trees with new ones in order to avoid shortage of materials in the future. They plant and grow trees intended for harvesting and manufacture production.

Given all that, it is now up to you to decide when should you begin your contribution to saving our planet. Be eco-friendly in whatever you do. Choose eco-friendly furniture if you have the chance to do so.
