Oeuf Sparrow Crib - Eco-friendly Convertible Crib

The Oeuf Sparrow Collection, in gray, is one of my favorite modern, eco-friendly baby crib furniture collections. The warm gray is soothing and neutral, perfect for a baby boy or girl, and it compliments the light birch panels on the coordinating dresser and wardrobe. The Oeuf Sparrow is a convertible crib and can transform into a toddler bed simply by changing out one panel. It is a great choice for an eco crib being made from solid sustainable birch wood and a non-toxic lacquer finish. And it can be used as a changing table crib with their optional changing station. Available from: BabyEarth, Oompa & Giggle.

Muu Sam Crib - Eco-friendly Convertible Crib

The Muu Sam crib is another modern, eco-friendly convertible crib with simple lines and made from sustainable solid maple wood and non-toxic lacquer finish. I love the decorative art panel that comes in your choice of design - from flowers and vines to helicopters and scooters to elephants, whales and butterflies. Available from: Oompa & Giggle.

If space is an issue, there are some cute eco cribs available...

Eco-friendly Convertible Cribs

The Alma Mini crib is just what it sounds like, a mini crib. It's a good solution for parents who have limited space or need an extra crib for the grandparent's house. The Alma Mini crib is made from solid sustainable birch wood and easily folds down for storage, when not in use. It comes in an assortment of low VOC colors including a bold gala green (shown above), as well as the standard neutrals. User reviews advise that its best used for newborns until 10-12 months, not 24 months as it is marketed, but they love the quality and ease of use. Available from: Giggle.

The STOKKE Sleepi crib is a compact convertible crib that transitions from newborn up to age 3 with no additional parts and can then be converted to a junior bed for use through age 7, with additional parts. It also can even be configured as two chairs with no additional parts. The STOKKE Sleepi crib is an eco crib option that grows alongside your child and is made from solid sustainable beech wood. Available from: BabyEarth & Giggle.



Eco Dining: reclaimed wood dining table & eco accessories

I usually lean towards modern, contemporary furniture and design, but lately I've been drawn to the rustic meets industrial design style...so I thought I would share this eco dining room's earthy tablescape. I've been admiring the reclaimed wood dining table for a while, imagining it as the centerpiece to my dining room. And the mix of industrial and natural dining accessories, used in this dining room design, complement it perfectly.

CB2 Eco Dining Room

The darjeeling dining table is constructed from reclaimed Indian railroad ties that have been pieced into a mosaic plank dining top and supported by industrial metal legs. The dining table and all accessories are available at CB2.com.

CB2 Eco Dining Accessories

{a} Reed chair - Antiqued iron wires are handwoven and welded to create this seat. Sits on sleigh legs.
{b} Carson wine glass - This handblown wine glass is designed to enhance color and aroma.
{c} Gear candleholder - Reclaimed iron gears make up each industrial tealight candle holder.
{d} Duo linen placemat for two - 100% linen placemat that spans opposite sides of the table.
{e} FLOR™ High Tide™ rug tiles - FLOR, build-your-own rug tile system, made from recyclable materials.
