Readers who want furniture that won’t poison them or the earth often find high price tags attached to the good stuff from companies including Palecek, Harden and Groovystuff. Well, Rowe Furniture is having none of that.
The company went into bankruptcy and bounced back last year, featuring a new collection it calls EcoRowe. Made in Elliston, Va., EcoRowe contains fabrics in natural fibers, cushions with renewable, plant-based materials and frames of wood from replenishable domestic forests.
At the High Point (N.C.) market earlier this month, the new Sanibel collection created a buzz. The frames are covered in abaca, a fiber extracted from the banana plant, and suggested prices start at about $349 for the end table/magazine rack, $399 for the ottoman, $649 for the chair and $999 for the sofa (depending on upholstery choices). The good-looking, upholstered Laine chair, above, starts at $549, ottoman at $399.
Sanibel probably won’t be available until July, but there are other EcoRowe offerings on the market now. San Francisco-area Rowe dealers include Z-Barn in the city, Papillon Home in Berkeley, Rockridge Home in Oakland and also Blue Tomatoes and Scandinavian Design stores.

It appears the 20 Wickes Furniture stores in the Chicago area may have a short future.
The Wheeling-based Wickes Furniture Co. announced Tuesday it has abandoned hopes of reorganization and agreed to put itself on the bankruptcy auction block before the end of the month, according to court papers.
