Much of the synthetic and non-organic solid wood furniture release the chemicals they are imbibed with into the air. As time goes by, the harmful preservatives find their way out of the hardwood panels of the furniture and into your lungs. Since organic bedroom furniture contain none of these pesticides and chemicals, you can be assured that the quality of air you breathe inside your bedroom or home will improve. There will be no chemicals that will go to your lungs, poisoning you little by little.
Origins of Black Lacquer Furniture. Oriental black lacquered furniture was commonly found in the temples and palaces and homes of the wealthy upper classes. Four basic styles of lacquered furniture design were used throughout the Ming and Qing Dynasties which lasted from 1368 - 1911. These styles included carving the lacquer, using black lacquer to fill in a design engraved into the wood and rubbing it flat, outlining the black lacquer and inlaying mother-of-pearl into the lacquer. White lacquered furniture can be made from a variety of woods, such as reclaimed pine, which is hand finished with a gleaming white lacquer finish. White lacquered furniture has a fresh, clean, contemporary look, and includes beds, side tables, coffee tables, trunks, console tables, mirrors and large sideboards all elegantly hand brushed in a linen finish. This style of furniture has increased in popularity in recent times and can come with attractive and elegant features such as antiquated yet contemporary brass flip up handles and sanded edges which subtly reveal the warm waxed wood underneath.
