For this multi-use Euro Modern console, for living or dining room, it's all about the small details. The open niche provides a great place to display modern accessories and with additional interior shelves, the cabinet offers plenty of storage for all your favorite wares.

Designed by Peter Maly, the European Modern Lumeo Bed, actually has design roots from one of my favorite modern US cities:
"When I designed Lumeo, I’d just come back from a trip to New York and had been strongly impressed by the modernity of that city. This spirit has undoubtedly permeated my design."
With bold scale, this over-sized headboard comes with the collection's signature square pattern design. With other finishes available like white lacquer, natural, dark brown, or ebony oak, you can create an array of Euro Modern looks for any urban loft or big city brownstone.

From one of his best teams, Pagnon & Pelhaitre, comes the clean lines of the Cineline Bed. With crisp modern tufting and options of leather or fabric, or even embossed in ebony oak, this bed blends in with any modern decor. Find the beauty of European Modern at www.ligne-roset-usa.com.

For the urban natural girl, she wants pureness in her home. Natural fabrics of linens & cottons, and fresh & flirty chairs with an organic sensibility. So, when it comes to true green ~ she wants the facts without sacrificing innovative styling and pure beauty. It's about Balance. And one winning sustainable combination comes from LEE Industries + BiOH.

What's inside this winning combination of NaturalLEE + BiOH: seat cushions made of Preserve® foam core with fiber wraps in a 100% cotton down proof ticking. The Preserve foam replaces 20% of the petroleum-based ingredients with a renewable soy-based BiOH polyol. The fibers are 80% regenerated fibers. Regenerated fibers consist of virgin fibers and waste fibers that are added with a binder fiber. This reduces the amount of waste that would normally go into our nation’s landfills.

Earth-Friendly Efforts Long Before it Became "Status Quo." ~ LEE

The NaturalLEE story: this fashion-forward upholstery manufacturer lovingly combines eco-technology with creative chic styling. Their commitment to sustainably is evident in their use of FSC certified woods and the green-choice to use BiOH cushions as their standard in all LEE products.
"Most importantly, sustainability is more than offering an eco-friendly product. We manufacture long-lasting furniture, made in the USA. The longevity of our furniture prevents it from being discarded into landfills, leaving a smaller environmental footprint on our Earth." ~ the LEE family.

Other feel good news about LEE: As part of their commitment toward a better future, one tree will be donated to American Forests® for every piece of NaturalLEE furniture sold. Now that, is true organic goodness. Make sure to see their amazing + extensive collection of eco-fabulous frames at www.leeindustries.com. {lifestyle photo: lee upholstery at domino magazine.}

BiOH: For the love of ~ Soy Love
The BiOH Story: this company makes me feel good. Although, everyone wants to get into the green movement, the green road is not as easy as it looks. True innovation + change comes with time and commitment and BiOH is leading the way in changing how manufacturers make upholstered furniture. Consumers need to understand the "shades of green" in terms of sustainability and need to make informed choices in how to purchase home interior goods. Leslie Carothers, social media strategist of BiOH states:
"BiOH soy based foams are a more responsible choice for the consumer on the continuum of choice but not the greenest choice, as foam made with BiOH soy polyols is a combination of soy and petrol. At this time, only 20% max of any cushion or mattress can contain soy because the technology does not exist to make a cushion that meets the manufacturer’s specifications for comfort".
The Good News: the pricing of upholstery made with BiOH soy cushions will not cost the consumer any more than making a choice to buy an all foam sofa and this makes the green-choice a whole lot easier. All you have to do is ask your retail sales consultant, "Which upholstery manufacturers do you carry use BiOH? It feels good to be green.

The Technology of it: What are BiOH® Polyols?

"We guess that you’re probably asking that question since “polyol” is not a word that most people use everyday, and we know that the majority of our family and friends still don’t completely understand what we do!" ~ the BiOH family.
BiOH polyols are an ingredient for flexible foam in products you use daily: upholstered furniture, mattresses, mattress toppers, pillows, carpet cushion, and automotive seats. Traditional foam and carpet cushion ingredients are made from petroleum-based chemicals. BiOH polyols are made from a renewable resource ~ soybean oil. (See the Soy Love section.) Today BiOH polyols cannot replace all of the petroleum chemicals in these products, but they are leading the industry.
