Recycling or using reclaimed materials to create new and contemporary design is great and is now becoming one of the ideas that designers are into. Joining with some other designers who loves designing things from reclaimed materials is Vendage. Vendage has created the Hanna Bench with white outdoor grassy silkscreen on backrest and seat that made the bench fresh looking. The bench itself is made with reclaimed wood from an Old Fisherman’s Boats and is painted with a Non-toxic paint. I find this bench perfect for verandas or terrace for more intimate relaxing seating experience while having a calming view with the warm scenery around you.

Carpets are generally used to give our home additional beauty. Normally, carpets that are available in the market are machine made and use different coloring materials to come up with the desired color and design. Nader Nasiri who started out as an antique carpet merchant in 1988, made a difference by creating beautifully handmade carpets. Creative hands make the designing processes with his chosen design experts. The dyeing process of the carpets uses a natural dyeing process using colors that are extracted from plant pigments. The weaving process on the other hand uses a 100 percent cotton warp and weft, and each carpet is woven on a loom with different types of finely knotted complex knots and strong lustrous wool.
Tiles are the most common material used when it comes to designing our home. We use it in our kitchen, toilets, shower, floors and there are even some that uses it on their outer walls. Clay, ceramics and granite can be the most common component of tiles. However, Bedrock Industries made a total difference with their product called Blazestone that is a 100% recycled glass tile. All of their tiles are made from post-industrial and post-consumer glass with no added oxides or colors. In addition, each of these elegant tiles are handmade from unique combination of glass that gives each tile a distinctive appearance and subtle color variation.
Giving our homes creative and natural interior design really takes sometime to finish. Just like this handmade veggie bowl by Margaret Dorfman. The bowls are made from fresh vegetables that are cured for several days. She then pressed it, dried, aged, and then molds the parchments into bowls that are as thin as paper that made it translucent. These veggie bowls are completed in ten days and should be kept away from direct sunlight to preserve its beauty. In addition, these bowls should also be kept away from moisture and humidity aside from keeping it away from direct sunlight. Made from various vegetables from different seasons, for sure you will have a good choice.

House furniture and interior design can be seen every store nowadays, and it seems like that eco-friendly items are coming out more and more often. Joining with some other eco-friendly store is the Viva Terra that presented their Convertible Wood Cube. Made from molded trunks of sustainable monkey and pod trees, the versatile, lustrous cube from a single piece of wood has been created. This product can be a side table or a small coffee table. In addition, you can also use it as a stool by putting some comfortable cushion in it. I called this creation a simple yet a very useful one.

Emphazing the importance of nature, French designer Patrick Nadeau created the nature individuelle. A series of objects made from birch plywood and terracotta that has the ability to house various plants that give every household the chance to integrate their interior design with nature. The items started out with small pots that can house some plants and rests on the floor to high and large standing dividers that have the ability to house in taller plants. With nature individuelle, people can now have the ownership of the environment and landscape surrounding them. In this way, people will not only be closer to nature but they can also have a cheaper and natural landscape design.
