Organic Home Furniture Goes Mainstream
by Chris Robertson
growing market for eco-friendly furniture and home furnishings. From organic
mattresses made from cotton and wool to wood furniture made from reclaimed
wood, there is a myriad of eco-friendly home furniture from which to choose.

Typically, manufacturers of eco-friendly wood furniture and decorative wood home
furnishings use reclaimed timber. In other words, the wood that is used to make
furniture was logged long ago and was once a bridge or other structure. By using
reclaimed wood, furniture makers recycle timber that has already been logged
instead of cutting down trees. Similarly, makers of eco-friendly bed linens use cotton
grown on small organic farms or wool harvested organically raised sheep.

The variety of available eco-friendly wood furniture and other wood home furnishings
is astounding. Many of the pieces have artisan craftsmanship, and can be proudly
displayed alongside antique furniture. Wood furniture inspired by the Viking and Celtic
peoples is very popular. A CD cabinet, for example, might feature Celtic scroll carving
embellishments or knobs engraved with a Celtic knot pattern. Likewise, a Celtic desk
might include a lattice footrest or brass handles, and be made from antique elm
wood.

The popularity of Viking motifs is gaining, especially in decorative pieces. For example,
a shield featuring Viking sea dragons inspired by historic carvings found in Sweden
dating from between the ninth and twelfth centuries adds a touch of history and
mystery to a living room's décor.

Reclaimed wood is also used to make Egyptian-inspired wood furniture and
decorative pieces. An Egyptian jewelry box, for example, might feature miniature
hand-paintings and carved hieroglyphs, while Egyptian candlesticks might feature
carvings that replicate those found on King Tutankhamen's ceremonial chair.

From rugs to linens, from carpeting to wood furniture, eco-friendly home furnishings
conserve the Earth's resources while providing consumers with items rich in beauty
and historical significance. Whether one's tastes runs to antiques, to the Viking or
Celtic eras, or to the mysteries of ancient Egyptian tombs, there are certainly organic
options for home decorating.

decades, and those concerned about
