Often, when people think of eco-friendly or green products, they call to mind images of bamboo, burlap, hemp. Those plain materials are great in their own ways. However, eco-friendly design is actually a viable option for a luxury home with gorgeous materials that you may not be aware of.
The basis by which a piece of furniture becomes eco-friendly is that it is made with natural and recycled materials. It must be made without using fire retardants or harsh chemicals and all in a responsible manner. The furniture is all natural on both the exterior as well as inside the piece with materials such as organic cotton, eco wool, natural latex. Many of these materials may be recycled, locally-sourced and reclaimed. Another important factor in the classification is that manufacturing considers responsible practices including monitoring materials which will increase the quality and reduce the carbon footprint of each piece.
As the design and overall style of eco-friendly furniture have improved, when you encounter it, you may not realize it. Why? It looks luxurious! Take, for instance, this eco-friendly sofa and reclaimed wood cabinet.
