Karlanda Sofa and Other Renewable Furniture Available at Ikea

Ikea has
a range of furniture made from renewable sources. The Karlanda
Sofa
($849) pictured above is an example. It is built using wood not
taken from intact forests. The removable cover is a mixture of cotton and
linen. It also converts into a bed.

Unfortunately, the padding is polyurethane and the base contains particleboard.
Ah well …still, it does have a lot going for it. In recent years Ikea has
become more eco-conscious in their designs and manufacturing. They now provide
a detailed breakdown of what materials go into each piece of furniture. You
can search on "renewable" for
example, and view hundreds of product matches.
