Has anyone had any luck using "Green" furniture? I've hear alot about it recently and am thinking about the purchase. Is it durable?

What exactly do you mean by "green?" I'm afraid it is one of those labels that companies will put on a product to sucker in the uninformed.

I saw a bottle of "organic honey" last week in the store. Really? I used to keep bees and could never train them to go to certain plants.

If you mean environmentally friendly kinda green, anything used you get off your local craisglist will beat new furniture for lack of environmental impact.

Ditto.

Lord, natural latex mattresses are fairly ecofriendly. They typically get just a wood foundation box. Another renewable resource....

Put one of those on a rustic pine bedroom set? The type that looks like bare tree limbs and I guess you're in business.

How far do you wanna go?

None of the furniture suppliers I have dealings with brag on their chinese or vietnamese tree farms at all.

A company called Perdue Woodworks makes domestic particle board furniture that is real decent for the price. Guess you could call them and ask about their forestry practices.

Recently "dark" word becomes more and more popular in every area, I think dark furniture is equal to quality furniture.
