Chic Eco-Friendly Children’s Furniture

by Ms. S on March 31, 2011

While looking for design options for my children’s bedroom, I hoped to find low-toxic, environmental-friendly ones. I was quite charmed by a lot of what I saw online. The price tags are pretty hefty so I’m sharing these options below for fun, informative “window shopping.”

Organic Acorn Pillow by Jaya Loves Tekeko

Jaya Loves Tekeko

Jaya Loves Tekeko is a Miami-based company that uses organic bamboo, organic cotton and other natural materials in their fun, colorful, eco-friendly products.  Their organic blankets and pillows are stuffed with kapok, a hypoallergenic seed that is harvested in the rainforest; and the ink used to create their adorable pillows is non-toxic and water-based.  The company also uses recycled and biodegradable packaging materials.

Fish and Pebbles Organic Twin Sheet Set by Argington


Artist Jenny Argie and husband, architect and mathematician Andrew Thornton, formed Argington in 2003 to solve everyday problems that arise when raising a family.  Argington is dedicated to producing clean, simple and durable designs while minimizing impact on the environment.  It uses wood made from renewable and sustainably-harvested solid birch and low-VOC birch plywood with 0% formaldehyde emission on wood products.  We have the Argington crib, which we’re happy with.  I’ve been admiring its organic crib bedding, which is made with 100% organic cotton and low-impact dyes.  All of its materials, glues, stains and finishes are HAP-free, non-toxic and low-VOC; and any dyes used are formaldehyde-free.

Caterpillar Activity Bench by Green Play Furniture


GreenPlayFurniture is an inventive children’s furniture company that uses only recycled, renewable and low-impact resources for their furniture. When applying finishes, Greenplay uses low- or no- VOC emission finishes. Staying fully committed to re-usability, Greenplay offers a take-back program in which Greenplay furniture products can be given back to the company to be re-purposed and donated. This fun Catepillar Activity Bench to the left is perfect for a child’s play room table! The top is made of recycled plastic and the entire bench is made with low-VOC emission finishes.

Sam Nightstand By MUU


Made in the USA, Muu products are inspired by the Zen concept that “there is no difference between us and our environment.” This mantra reflects the company’s commitment to sustainability.  Muu creates safe, non-toxic and family-friendly furniture that are made from locally-sourced wood and certified recycled wood fibers. All products are finished with non-toxic finish.  The Sam Collection by Muu is named after the founder’s grandfather and is full of fun, colorful custom-chosen design panels that can also be personalized with your child’s name.  How cool is that?!
