All about the ecological solid wood Children Room
Parents ask themselves many questions before buying baby furniture. Which functions must baby furniture fulfil? What about safety? Is the furniture free of harmful substances? How do I find equally durable furniture that is also beautiful to look at? In the following we try to answer some of your questions.
Ecological Baby Furniture
You may have heard that baby furniture should be ventilated before use. Most wood materials and varnishes are produced synthetically. Especially in closed rooms, they evaporate for a longer time.
Special care should be taken with board materials that use a lot of formaldehyde-based glue. Formaldehydes can be harmful to health at increased concentrations in the breathing air.
That's why we at Ekomia thought about how to make children's furniture ecologically.
Ecological Glazes with the standard for children's toys
At Ekomia we use ecological glazes and oils from natural ingredients, which meet the EU standard for children's toys (DIN EN 71, part 3) and are saliva- and sweat-proof according to DIN 53 160.
This means that the colours are safe for children even if your child puts the furniture in his mouth. Moreover, our colors are vegan.
The white Ekomia baby furniture is glazed with a Bio Glaze, which was rated "very good" by Ökotest.
Baby furniture made of Certified Solid Wood
All Ekomia baby and children's furniture is made from FSC certified solid pine wood. This makes them more robust and durable than baby furniture made of other materials. On the other hand, very little glue is used for solid wood and the evaporation of the resins is minimized.
At Ekomia we use a formaldehyde-free white glue to glue the solid wood parts.
Another advantage of Solid wood is that even cracks or larger defects can be easily repaired. For example, we also offer filling waxes or colour repair kits for our organic children's furniture. With this kit you can easily bring even heavily used furniture back into shape.
If wood FSC is certified, this means that the forestry company must replant one tree for each tree felled and follow rules to protect the ecosystem. The Nordic pine wood for our baby furniture comes from Sweden.
With Ekomia baby furniture, you can bring sustainable and durable furniture into your home that will survive the next generation of children. At the same time, you can be sure that the use of our wood and colours will have as little impact on the environment as possible.
From Baby Room to Nursery
All parents know the phenomenon: they just had a newborn in their arms and suddenly they are already going to kindergarten. Children grow out of their things very fast.
This is not only about clothing, but also about furniture. The sooner you know it, the baby room has to be converted into a children's room and more. For many parents a high stress factor, if they stand before the purchase decision.
All the more practical when the nursery covers as many growth phases as possible. We have thought about this and developed a furniture series that grows with your child.
Height adjustable Baby Cot with Conversion Set
Babies develop incredibly fast in the first few years. In the first few months the baby stays in the supine and prone position and cannot yet sit. From the age of 6 months on, the baby is pulled up and from the age of 8 months on, the child can crawl out into the wide world.
Our growing baby Cot Lumy adapts to the growth phase of your baby.
Baby's lie in the bed with the raised slats so that the parents can easily reach their baby. As soon as your child can sit, you should lower the slatted frame. Now your baby can play unhindered, pull himself up by the bars or turn back and forth while sleeping without falling out of bed.
If at some point it can walk and wants to leave its bed independently, you can remove three bars of slip. They ensure that your child can go to or leave the bed as needed. Until it is about three years old, you should leave it with this solution.
From the age of 3 your child is already one of the older ones and would like to have a suitable bed. To do this you simply exchange one side of the grid for an open side part of our baby cot. In the twinkling of an eye you can turn the cot into a design junior bed that can be used up to the age of five.
Convertible Changing Chest
Compatible with the growing cot, there is our convertible changing chest Emo. As soon as your toddler no longer needs to be changed and the focus is more on the storage of toys and plush toys, the function of the baby changing unit changes.
It can be converted into a standard chest of drawers and then into a practical wardrobe, housing everything from clothes and books to toys and more.
Children's Table and Stool in 5 organic colours to grow with
Tiny children already want to let off steam creatively and before floors and windows are painted, they need their own creative corner.
Our height-adjustable Just children's tables and chairs can be converted into 3 heights to suit body heights from 80 to 150 cm. So your children can use the children's seating group from one year to school age.
The black table top can be painted with chalk and wiped with a damp cloth. At the beginning the table can be used by two or more toddlers, later it becomes a single table for big children. This leaves enough space for painting and handicrafts. Pencils and blocks are stored in a tray and are quickly ready to hand again.
Furnishing tips: Timeless Children's Room Design
What the ecological baby furniture from Ekomia has in common is the simple and timeless form and the bright natural look, which are based on Scandinavian design.
The wood grain shines through easily to preserve the natural character of the pine wood. So that it doesn't get boring, we also set accents with our colorful organic colors.
All furniture can be individually combined with each other and fits to almost every furnishing style and in every children's room. Thanks to the restrained design and simple colour scheme, Ekomia baby furniture is absolutely timeless and usable for many years. They do not follow any trends and never go out of fashion.
Premeditated. Jump in time into the Youth Room
Furthermore, they adhere to one of the most important factors of Scandinavian furniture design: sustainability. For us, sustainability also means using a piece of furniture for a long time. For example, we recommend that many parents looking for a bed plan long ahead and think about adolescence.
The Floating and very simple Bed Swebe appeals to many children and teenagers and is very fair priced. With different widths from 90 cm, it can be used as a single bed or from 120 cm width for overnight guests.
Upcycling and DIY in the Nursery
Today's young people are strongly concerned with the topic of sustainability. More and more DIY- and recycling ideas can be found in the youth room. The Kids can become very creative thereby.
We encourage this spirit of invention among young people with our DIY instructions. You want to know how to convert vegetable crates into cupboards? Or building a clothes rail from a branch? Then Ekomia is the right place for you.
