Was thumbing through this company's website of green projects and noticed the kitchen in this house was Ikea. And specifically chosen for their stringent requirements about formaldehyde off-gassing.

So nice to see. I went to Ikea Shaumberg a few weeks ago to ask about the cabinets and formaldehyde, and three salespeople later they found the notebook with a xerox of a statement from Ikea about upholding German standards, etc. I wish Ikea would promote the "green-ness" of their product more -- I'd have an easier time convincing my architect to use it!
