Bobby Berk Home partners with Ecotots

Ecotots design and manufacture a high-quality, full-line of environmentally friendly, real wood modern furniture and furnishings for kids which assemble quickly and easily without any tools or hardware. Some pieces of our furniture also disassemble for easy storage and transport. All of Ecotots products are made from renewable FSC Certified Smart Wood®, and are available in a variety of eco-friendly, UV finishes.

InmodernTM and EcototsTM are not typical ready-to-assemble furniture for many reasons. First and
foremost they produce all of their furniture from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certified,
formaldehyde-free PureBond® wood, (not from particle board made with formaldehyde and
adhered paper or hollow-core veneered methods like most RTA manufacturers). Like all of the
furniture manufactured by The Simple Furniture CompanyTM , their four InmodernTM as well as their two
EcototsTM collections, require no tools to assemble. In addition, every piece in their collections
carries the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) ecolabel. The ecolabel ensures the wood has been
independently certified by SmartWood® as meeting the standards set by the Forest Stewardship
Council for environmentally responsible forestry. In addition, no materials or procedures used in the
creation of InmodernTM or EcototsTM furniture interferes with the overall environment or the health of
its inhabitants. And the fact that their entire furniture collection requires no hardware - screws, bolts,
nuts or glue - to assemble allows it to remain truly "green".
