  1. Bamboo Revolution

    For hundreds of years, bamboo has been a symbol for strength, durability, loyalty, community, endurance, and so much more. The bamboo plant is a grass, whose ounce-for-ounce compressive strength surpasses that of wood, brick, and concrete making it a superb building material. Additionally, bamboo grows thin, hollow, and completely vertical without bending or breaking; and its roots interconnect and entangle with neighboring stalks. This trait increases its physical and symbolic strength because not only is bamboo capable of withstanding a storm, the bamboo stalks do so together. Together they maintain the integrity of the forest floor and protect it from runoff. Moreover, bamboo is incredibly flexible and moves with the wind instead of fighting against it which symbolizes adaptability and endurance. It is this incredible combination of strength and flexibility that makes bamboo the perfect representation of balance and harmony. Not only is Bamboo beautiful and resilient, it is an environmentally sound choice as well. Capable of growing to maturity in as little as five years, Bamboo is one of Earth’s most renewable resources and releases 35% more oxygen than the equivalent stands of trees. For this reason, bamboo furniture is a superbly eco-friendly choice and Haiku Designs is proud to offer an extensive selection of solid Moso Bamboo furniture by Greenigton. The esteemed makers of fine Bamboo furniture at Greenington, have created Asian Fusion masterpieces including but not limited to the Azara Collection, Tentai Collection, and Sienna Collection.

  3. How to Choose Sustainable Bedroom Furniture

    Finding beautiful, high quality furniture that has been manufactured in an environmentally friendly way can be difficult; however, the following tips can help ease the burden. A good place to start is by looking for furniture made of recycled materials. Whether it uses recycled textiles for the upholstery or reclaimed wood for a new dresser, furniture crafted in recycled materials can offer a stylish vintage look and is incredibly durable. Secondly, seek out furniture crafted in sustainably or easily renewably resources. Bamboo is an excellent material that is not only incredibly renewable (bamboo grass matures in 5 years or less) but is also astonishingly durable. The next aspect to consider is the actual manufacturing of the furniture: ensuring that the materials used are safe for you and your family. Most compressed and veneer woods contain harmful chemicals such as formaldehydes, low-quality glues, and various other substances that off-gas toxic fumes into the environment. Eco-friendly furniture and furniture that has received eco-friendly certifications from organizations such as the E-1 Emission Standard, does not off-gas toxic fumes. Eco-friendly furniture helps you create a home that is beautiful, comfortable, long-lasting, and safe for you and your family. more...
