Earth Day Decor: Organic Furniture
Happy Earth Day Fabulistas! I'm a huge fan of Earth Day, are you? I'm constantly looking for ways to save energy, checking that everything around me is being recycled, just trying to be a good global citizen. It doesn't take much time to be sure we are taking care of this precious Earth, does it? With just a few minutes and a little thought we can protect our world! Have you thought about investing in organic furniture? We all have different definitions of organic but I look for pieces that are either made of natural materials, recycled materials, or locally made pieces. Tip: if a piece is locally made, it doesn't have to travel across country and less gas is used! If you're looking to buy organic, here are a few of my fave furniture pieces. STEEL Chair I find the STEEL chair to be gorgeous! No matter your design style the STEEL chair could be placed in your space. Can you believe it's made of old wooden handles? I was blown away when I found out... it looks so sophisticated! It comes in a natural finish or painted white. I totally want both!
STEEL chair from Reinier de JongFS Chair The FS chair is interesting... I don't think it's a look everyone will love but I definitely do! I'm so attracted to the lines of this chair, the flat verticle and horizontal supports, oh my! This eco-chair is flat packed and shipped, so minimal resources are used to transport it to it's final destination. (Saving gas!) Assembly is super easy, too. The parts just snap into each other, saving metal pieces and glue.
FS chair from Oyd DesignReclaimed Wood End Table I'm often looking for the perfect wood end table. Wood tables are great for balancing spaces because of the natural materials and color. This end table is great because it's comprised of many pieces of douglas fir, all of which are collected from torn down buildings in Los Angeles. A little character in your living room!
Reclaimed wood end table from ViessoProduktwerft If you're looking for a standout piece for your space you should consider the Produktwerft series. Each piece in this series is made from materials that have been saved and revived. These upcycled pieces use antique materials and an environmentally friendly process. Yes, they're also so FAB!

The Emmerson series consists of dining tables, benches, beds, nighstands and more. Each is made of reclaimed solid pine certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®). Yes, its obviously gorgeous! The dining table is my fave!
