Levels of Bed and Furniture Construction
Many beds and much of the furniture manufactured today is made from cheap chipboard, or particleboard construction held together often with plastics and toxic chemical compounds. Although very inexpensive to produce, there are many inherent disadvantages to this type of product, including quality issues, the use of toxic formaldehyde, and plastics, and the off gassing of VOC’s (noxious Volatile Organic Compounds) into the sleeping environment. Haiku Designs does not offer this type of product to our customers.
A better manner of furniture construction uses an Engineered Wood, an all wood composite material which has a strength equal to or greater than solid wood, and can shrink or expand in humid or dry conditions. Haiku Designs offers a number of beds made from combination of engineered wood and solid wood construction. The platform beds are made from this type of product do not use toxic compounds in the manufacturing process and do not off gas. In addition, many of the our beds from this material meet the strict European Union “E-1”, zero off gas emission standards for furniture manufacturer.
