OEUF, BE GOOD.
When we were kids whenever our parents dropped us off somewhere, like school, our grandparents’ house for the weekend or even summer camp, they always gave us a hug and a kiss and told us to “be good” as they waved goodbye.
As kids, we’re very literal and knew this meant…don't cut your sister’s hair; don’t glue yourself to the wall; don’t go running off into the woods with nothing but your underwear and a toothbrush. At the time, it was mostly about good behavior.
Now as parents, we realize there is a whole other level of meaning when we kiss them goodbye and tell them to be good. We know we’re really telling them to be good people. Do the right thing, make us proud, be the kind of people we hope to be. At Oeuf, we have the chance to elevate this notion once again and be a good company. When we say Be Good, we mean:
Be good designers.
Simple, clean, intuitive products that are easy and safe to use; made with quality craftsmanship that will last from generation to generation; designed with a European sensibility that is fun and stylish, reflecting the needs and lifestyle of today’s modern families.
Be good people.
Respect the people who work with us and treat them fairly whether employees, artisans, retailers, or consumers. Provide a safe and supportive working environment that allows working families to live and thrive in the United States, Europe and abroad. Honor cultural traditions, diversity and local values. Pay people living wages that enable them to live healthy, fulfilling lives and send their own children to school.
Be good to the planet.
Use natural, renewable, recyclable materials that emphasize conservation and lead to environmentally sound products. Employ eco-conscious manufacturing processes that promote low emissions and sustainability.
Be Good is not just something we say-- its something we mean. As parents, we want our children to inherit a world that is better than we found it. At Oeuf, we have the ability to make that happen.

DO I HAVE TO ANCHOR MY DRESSER AND SHELF UNIT TO THE WALL?
Yes!! It is very important that you anchor Dressers and Mini Libraries to the wall as recommended by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. In fact, this shoud be done with all furniture and TV's. (If you have a Classic Hutch, which has been discontinued, it should also be anchored to the wall.)
DOES YOUR FURNITURE USE ANY GLUE?
Not all of our pieces use wood glue; however, when we do use glue it is non-toxic and water-based (think Elmer’s). In the process of producing plywood and MDF, only certified CARB 2 adhesives are used.
WHAT ARE THE VOC EMISSION LEVELS IN YOUR FURNITURE?
Recent attention has focused on the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted into the air in our homes. Typically, the VOC of most concern is formaldehyde. Our products meet the toughest European (E1) and Californian emissions standards (CARB 1 and 2) for formaldehyde emissions. The CARB 2 standards were adopted federally in 2013. We have always met the CARB 1 standard before it even existed and have been using materials that meet the CARB 2 standard since 2011.
IS THERE FORMALDEHYDE IN YOUR WOOD?
All solid wood contains a small amount of formaldehyde. Even the breath we exhale contains formaldehyde. Nevertheless, we are comitted to minimizing it as much as possible.
WHAT FINISHES ARE AVAILABLE?
We offer natural birch, walnut stain, and white finishes.
WHAT KIND OF STAIN AND PAINT DO YOU USE?
The finishes we use on our furniture are free of VOC health hazards and are non-toxic and water-based. We meet all European, US, Canadian and Australian standards for safety and emissions, and our finishes are also approved in Europe for use on children’s toys.
WILL THE COLORS FROM ONE COLLECTION MATCH THE COLORS FROM ANOTHER COLLECTION?
All of the finishes match between collections. For example, a white Classic Dresser will match a white Sparrow Crib. Please note, though, that since the birch and walnut finishes show the natural grain of the wood, there may be uneveness in the color, and the finishes may not be identical from piece to piece.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SIZE MATTRESS I NEED FOR MY CRIB?
All of our cribs accommodate standard U.S. and Canadian size crib mattresses that measure 28" x 52" x 5.
DOES THE CHANGING TRAY FIT ON TOP OF A CRIB?
No, the Changinging Tray is designed to fit on top of a dresser.
DO I NEED GUARD RAILS FOR MY TWIN BED?
The Sparrow and River Twin Beds were designed to be lower to the ground - about 13” from floor to mattress top - so guard rails may not be necessary. It really depends whether your child tends to fall out of bed during the night.
ARE THE SPARROW AND RIVER TRUNDLES INTERCHANGEABLE WITH THE DIFFERENT BEDS?
No. The Sparrow Trundle only fits under the Sparrow Twin Bed. The same is true of the River.
Please note: The Sparrow Trundle is only compatible with Sparrow Twin Beds (Item #3SPTW01 and #3SPTW02) purchased after August 1, 2010.
* Neither trundle beds fit under the Perch Bunk Bed.

Yes we do sell a twin, full and trundle mattress. For more information on the mattresses please visit this Mattress page.
