The Green Scene...IKEA Norden Series...

The Norden Gateleg Table

It was inevitable that I would mention IKEA in my weekly column...not only are the prices unbelievable, but the quality will not let you down. Make no mistake...this store is huge in Europe and should be bigger here.  Open any European design magazine and you will find IKEA furniture, accessories and textiles in homes big and small. I love how adaptable their products are. The Norden series is amazing and I wanted to share this with you from the website:  this series is built from the "knotty top part of the birch tree" and was introduced in 1998...they were the first to think of doing this instead of "burning it as firewood or grinding it for chipboard production." I love this 'green' story...below are the finished eco-friendly products...
