Creative Cabinet

The uniquely designed doors on this dramatic bedroom armoire by Philadelphia’s Iannone Design are crafted from kirei board (made from recycled sorghum stalks) and certified low-emissions white laminate. The cabinet’s shelves and drawers are built with Forest Stewardship Council–certified birch plywood and assembled using formaldehyde-free adhesives.

“Many of our clients have green houses, and they’re shopping with that in mind,” designer Michael Iannone says. “At trade shows, we promote sustainability heavily. If people don’t know what that means when they enter our booth, they know what it is when they leave.”

Graphic Armoire: 42 inches wide, 22 inches deep, 70 inches high: $3,995. (856) 889-7307  

A Better Bed

Think an organic mattress is beyond your budget? Lifekind of Grass Valley, California, makes an affordable innerspring mattress with six layers of hand-tufted, certified-organic cotton padding covered with quilted organic cotton and pure wool. All materials are sanitized using an ozone process rather than chlorine bleaching.
