Sebra introduces a new wood and colour variant of The Sebra Bed, Baby & Jr. design classic called the ‘Black Wooden Edition’. As a new feature, the special edition is FSC™-certified and treated with water-based varnish, which not only distinguishes The Sebra Bed, Baby & Jr. as a Danish design icon but also as a more sustainable and environmentally friendly choice of bed for families with children.
The Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC™) is a global, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of responsible forest management worldwide. FSC™ defines standards based on agreed principles for responsible forest stewardship that are supported by environmental, social, and economic stakeholders.

The Sebra Bed, Baby & Jr. Black Wooden Edition is made of beech wood, just like the beautiful natural-coloured ‘Wooden Edition’.
The Black Wooden Edition carries the FSC ™ Mix label, which means that the product is made of FSC™-certified and other controlled material.
The new black bed is treated with an environmentally friendly, matt, black- pigmented 1 component water-based varnish, which allows the wood grains to show through the colour. This gives each bed its very own unique look, and the more environmentally friendly type of varnish also helps to minimise the bed’s environmental footprint.
The bed is also treated with an antibacterial varnish, which ensures a cleaner indoor environment and protects your child’s health. Microbiological silver ions, primarily used in the healthcare sector, break down and prevent micro-organisms from growing and therefore reduce the spread of bacteria. The varnish is independently tested in accordance with the restrictive JIS Z 2801 standards, including for E. coli bacteria.
The bed is approved in accordance with the European Union’s chemical legislation (REACH), which ensures that chemical substances are used safely and with minimal risk to health and the environment, and the bed also meets the safety requirements of DS/EN 716-1:2017+AC2019.
Sebra has the rights to the Juno bed, which was originally designed by Viggo Einfeldt in 1942–43 and relaunched the classic, timeless and beautiful bed under the name ‘The Sebra Bed’.
The design of the bed therefore celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2017. The bed was originally known as “the bed that grows with your child” – a slogan that is indeed true, as it is a functional bed with a pull-out function which allows the bed to be used by a child through several stages of childhood, from baby to junior (155 cm). This ensures longer use and benefits your child, the family and the environment.
The Juno bed distinguishes itself by being one of the first, if not the first, cot which focuses on your child’s safety. The safety element is thus part of the bed’s DNA. But although the Juno bed was a good, safe bed which was passed down from generation to generation at the time and has been over the years, Viggo Einfeldt’s original design no longer lives up to today’s strict safety requirements.
Sebra has therefore adapted the bed and its functionality somewhat in relation to the original design, both in order to meet the current standards for cots and to accommodate the parents of today.
One improvement is the adjustable base, which makes it easier to lift your child out of and put them into the bed during their first few months. The adjustable base makes it easier to get a good and safe grip when picking up your infant, while also allowing you to better support your infant’s back and neck when it is time to sleep, because the distance to the bed is lessened – making it safer for your child and better for your back.
When your child starts to show signs of being able to get into a sitting or crawling position, the base of the bed can be lowered.
The bed’s distinctive and handcrafted cot sides and gables provide safety for your child during its first year of life and ensure that your child does not roll out when it begins to move more, sit or stand upright.
The bars of the bed have been cut at the bottom to create a slope, which means that your child cannot get a foothold and climb/fall over the edge of the bed. The mounting of the sides, which can be removed when your child can climb out of bed, has been made more user-friendly compared to the original design.
The many different combinations allow you to constantly find new ways to use the bed, which was one of Viggo Einfeldt’s original ideas behind the Juno bed.
