Our production works with the most modern computer-controlled machines, which work very precisely and inexpensively.
Nevertheless, the wood selection is hand-picked and typical characteristics of the wood are carefully processed by our production staff. For the connectors we use quality components from companies like Haefele or Blum.View production process
Our products are mostly produced in series and sold directly without intermediaries. Thus we can realize better prices than is possible in the traditional trade.
For those who want to save even more, we offer cheap DIY sets for furniture and lamps that can replace the purchase of new furniture.To the DIY area
"The first collection convinces with clear lines and Scandinavian flair. In addition, there are two smart DIY living ideas for small money, but with great charm".
Ekomia stands for minimalist ecological furniture with Scandinavian design. We use certified oak or pine wood and ecological paints or oils. The durable solid wood furniture is completed by cheap DIY furniture & lamps.
Organic products have been known for a long time in the food and textile industries. In the furniture sector, on the other hand, there seems to be either short-lived chipboard furniture or eco furniture that somehow seems to have fallen out of time. We wanted to change that by developing ecologically high-quality furniture that still looks good.
"At ekomia, we try to make affordable designer furniture while staying as ecological as possible."
What's the difference? People often have different things on their minds when they talk about natural products or sustainability. Terms are used that are sometimes used synonymously or can mean completely different things.
There are different approaches to furniture when it comes to ecological furniture:
At ekomia, we take a holistic approach to sustainability. Starting with the selection of high-quality, pollutant-free materials, environmentally friendly production, recycled packaging and short, climate-friendly transport routes to the customer.
There are several reasons why you should buy ecological & sustainable furniture as holistically as possible:
In the following we will explain to you what organic furniture is all about in detail.
In contrast to chipboard, solid wood is glued together from complete wooden parts. This gives a stable, durable construction that can be easily repaired even in the event of dents, cracks or scratches. So solid wood furniture can become old generations.
Of course, it is important that the design of the furniture does not go out of fashion at some point. That's why we at ekomia try to make our organic furniture as simple and timeless as possible, so that you and later generations can enjoy the pieces for a long time.
Wood glue is unfortunately mostly produced synthetically in furniture construction and in many cases on the basis of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a substance that occurs in nature, but can be harmful to health if there are high concentrations in the air.
Straight chipboards have a high glue content of up to 10%, which is often based on formaldehyde. Solid wood, on the other hand, requires very little wood glue (less than 1% glue content).
At ekomia we used a formaldehyde-free white glue.
Conventional paints are mostly synthetically produced from petrochemical products. In the case of natural paints, attempts are made to use organic and mineral raw materials as far as possible.
The use of solvents should also be avoided, because solvents are harmful to the environment in nature and can impair the health of furniture manufacturers.
Ekomia only uses natural vegetable oil-based paints, which are approved for children's toys according to the DIN EN 71 standard, are vegan and do not contain known allergens.
Naturally oiled or glazed wooden surfaces have the advantage that scratches or stains can be easily repaired:
You can buy care sets and wood wax for all white and natural oiled ekomia organic furniture from us. If you want to build and treat a piece of furniture yourself, you can also get ecological wood varnishes and working materials from us.To the wood care products
For ekomia furniture we used different types of solid wood:
Our FSC certified pine wood from Sweden is glazed white with an ecological glaze. The beautiful grain of the pine shimmers through easily.
The massive wild oak from Poland (FSC certified) with a distinctive grain and a few branches worked by hand is ecologically oiled.

"With borrowings from Scandinavian design, we try to make the models as simple and straightforward as possible with great attention to detail."
Ecological furniture actually has a long tradition in Germany. Already in the 70's companies have dealt with it. But many of the old and current models you don't want to have in your home anymore - they are too old-fashioned and ornate.
When ekomia furniture follows a design language, it is minimalism. With borrowings from Scandinavian design, we try to make the models as simple and straightforward as possible with great attention to detail. We want to create timeless objects that are not subject to fashion.More Design Inspiration
Every solid wood has its own characteristics that have to be taken into account during production. How does the wood stretch after cutting? How does it react to oils and glazes? Many years of experience are therefore indispensable in the furniture trade.
A piece of furniture goes through the following steps in production:
We cooperate with experienced production partners. Our partners for oak furniture, for example, exclusively produce solid wood furniture from oak and know all the characteristics of wood. Our design drafts and specifications for sustainability are thus underpinned by the production know-how of our partners.
