InModern furniture, an extension of The Simple Furniture Company, appeals to both the design junkie and environmentalist. With their clean scandanavian lines and Forest Stewardship Council (*FSC) certified wood, these modern and high-quality, affordable pieces are both practical and “green” conscious.
By using FSC woods, InModern promotes the principles “that brings people together to find solutions which promote responsible stewardship of the world’s forests”. Considering LEED guidelines which call for both FSC Certified Wood products (including materials and furniture), as well as indoor air quality concerns, InModern addresses both by not adding any formaldehyde and using water-based stains to minimize harmful off-gases. Add to that the fact that every piece of furniture is assembled without the use of tools, and uses no hardware or glue, either, and you have yourself a very minimalist approach to great, green design. The first of the three R’s, “Reduce,” is definitely at play here.
Product lines offered include tables, shelving & storage, media centers, desks, seating and accessories, which are manufactured in Richmond, Indiana. Retailers conveniently include Target and Home Visions dot com.
