I need help in buying non toxic furniture. Basically I'm looking for solid wood. I am also looking into buying second hand furniture because they are less offgassing.
|What else should I look for in furniture? I've once bought a new futon with solid wood frame and it smelled really bad for a day or two. I thought solid wood won't offgass but it maybe be because of the varnish? or Is toxic glue used in most solid wood furniture? IKEA has some solid wood furniture but uses lacquer. Is the lacquer toxic?|
|My friend just made a low coffee table with cedar but she put a varnish on it.
I wonder if there is non-toxic varnish or if you can use oil.
