Furniture Fashion Names Top 30 Environmentally Friendly Furnishings

July 31, 2012

Daily design blog Furniture Fashion today released its list of the top 30 eco-friendly pieces of furniture in the modern marketplace. Taking into account its readers’ feedback on its more than 5,000 interior design posts over the past five years, the editorial team rounded up what it feels are the most impressive green designs for the home, from tables and chairs to cabinets and decorative accents.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 31, 2012

Analyzing feedback from its 20,000 readers and reviewing all its furniture finds gathered over the past five years, Furniture Fashion today released a list of the 30 most essential pieces of eco-friendly furniture its curators have run across in the team’s daily search for objects and ideas worth sharing. The interior design blog hosts an archive of more than 5,000 furniture-related posts; it publishes original content 365 days a year.

Ranging from rustic, reclaimed wood pieces to sleek, ultra-modern objects, the list spans a wide range of furniture styles, materials and manufacturing processes. Each piece is considered environmentally friendly because it was either made of sustainable, consciously-sourced materials or upcycled from pre-existing objects that would have otherwise been discarded.

The http://www.furniturefashion.com co-founders advise that “sustainable design doesn’t mean sacrificing style; on the contrary, some of the brightest minds in the design industry today are not only inventive and creative from both a visual and functional standpoint; they also bear in mind the impact their pieces will leave on the world behind them. The terms ‘green,’ ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘stylish’ will likely someday be synonymous.”

The list — the first of its kind for the site, which normally publishes daily roundups of ten variations on the day’s theme — is divided into six categories: tables, chairs, lights, accents, bedroom and kitchen. According to the Furniture Fashion team, each object featured is one of both style and substance that, whether classic or contemporary, was thoughtfully crafted with the environment’s well being in mind.
