Living green is a very rewarding thing to do. You will not only help saving the earth, but rather you helped yourself as well. One of the green things that will let you help the community and yourself is the Barnacle Chair by Ania Wagner. The Barnacle Chair is made of sustainable wood and lined with an industrial felt. One can sit into it or if not, they can turn it upside down and lean over together with friends and families while having a good chat with each other. The features it has, the Barnacle Chair is not only green and artistic, but it is also functional and got a modern design.
Patterns are nice especially if it has creative and artistic designs in it. However, it would be even nicer if one can create pattern out of a wooden material. The idea sounds eco-friendly and that is what Minotaur did. They have created a set of cubes that consists of 16 wooden cubes that has the ability to form great number of patterns. The cubes are nicely laser cut by a wooden toy maker in Kyushu, Japan, using Japanese maple and White Ash, which is really a good combination. Patterns looks nice and I find it perfect as a house décor as part of the interior design.
When we speak of CDs, what comes first to our minds is a music and movie CD. However, with the technologies that are present today, CDs are already rarely used when we tend to listen to our favorite music or watch our favorite movie. We can now easily have them handy with our MP3s, MPEG or MP4 player. And because of these CDs are now stacked in our room. To make our CDs stacked in a nice order, the wooden X CD holder is born. You can now have your CDs arranged and pile in one place. This will not only let your have your CDs organized but it will also let you became eco-friendly since this is hand made and the materials used is out from bamboo.
Being Eco-friendly is fun especially if you did it without compromising the beauty and great designs. This is what the Moso Bamboo Pendant Lamp of Brian Schmitt is all about. Manufactured by hand from the US and is made from bamboo, there is no doubt that this pendant lamp is an eco friendly one. The Moso Bamboo Pendant lamp is composed of shade panels, bamboo frame, and cord, which is very basic and yet it still brings out the beauty and elegance in it. What is good about the Moso Bamboo is that it can be packed flat, shipped to your desired destination, and can be easily assembled without using any fastener or glue.
The Sea Urchin is a known sea creatures that we love to eat but we normally throw away its skin that is pointed and tend to be harmful. However, Dutch designer Rachel van Outvorst changed everything bad that we think about the sea urchin. She made a very attractive design out of it, and the result is truly a remarkable work of art, which is the sea urchin chair. The circular design of the sea urchin chair is not new anymore however, what is amazing about it is that it is handmade out of 8,000 cable ties. If you want to have a unique lounging in a chair made of unique and eco-friendly material, try the sea urchin chair now.
I never knew that shopping carts could also be a useful chair as what the Junior Year student did in his final project. The chair was made with no welding work done. All he had done is cut some parts of it and bent those areas that needed to bend until he came up with this creative and eco-friendly chair. I hope that now that we already have the idea of the shopping cart turns into a useful chair, no shopping carts will be thrown away anymore. Maybe some painting job can be done to those carts who already have some rusts or those who are slightly worn out already.
Storage can be the most important thing to have in a house. Here is where we put our unused items like the pillows, blankets or some small items that we really intend not to use and just preserve it. However, some houses do not have enough space for storage area. The bamboo table will be the answer on this type of houses. It has a featured removable top cover to let you place your to be stored items inside the bamboo table and cover it with again with its cover and use as a table. Such a nice idea right there from Pfeifer Studio.
Refrain from using your old black lacquer of the 80s, and switch to the current eco-friendly one now. Yes! You heard it right; an eco-friendly lacquer is now available to give your furniture an attractive polishing without bringing in any harm. It has been tested and used already to various products like the Bamboo Salad Suite Deluxe from VivaTerra, the Cain Collection bench from Branch Home, which is obviously looks simple. However, you can add some beauty into it by applying some smooth sheen of clear or colored lacquer. The Lacquered Rattan storage box by some Vietnamese artisans from Ten Thousand Villages brings out the beauty of their product by using the eco-friendly lacquer too. Other tested products are the Log Bowls and the colorful Curvy Servers.
