Eco-friendly furniture is hot right now!


As consumers become more and more conscious about the environment, they are adapting their consumption habits as well. This is also the case in interior decoration and furniture items, and several designers are jumping on this trend.

Long gone are the days that going green would mean you'd have to compromise on design. Today designers are able to create high end and modern pieces that perhaps even outplay their counterparts made with more traditional materials. The add style and flair to your home, while you limit your ecological footprint.

So where can I buy the hottests items?

Several independent designers are experimenting with eco-friendly design, for example there are many items with recycled materials (plastic, rubber, etc). But, there is also a platform that offers a wide variety of collections, called Urban Design Fox . They have created unusual collections of industrial style furniture that is made with more eco-friendly materials such as cork and bamboo. The former is actually the bark of the tree, while the latter is a grass, so both can be harvested in a renewable way without destroying the plant organism itself.

Even in the bathroom?

Absolutely, because cork is naturally waterproof material it is even possible to make bathroom furniture items with them. Urban Design Fox's Moon & Nuspa collection includes a luxury freestanding bath tub, as well as several washbasins and stools. They are quite pricey, but in return you get to relax in true natural luxury.
