Sleep Well

Written by Amy Elbert



An antique coffee table was refurbished and given new life. Bamboo fabric was used to cover a vintage settee and sidechair. Because bamboo is a fast-growing grass, it is a highly renewable source.

Before you tuck yourself in at night, take a bath to wash away any toxins that may have latched onto your body during the day, slip into an organic cotton nightie, and then rest easy.
