Cabin is a great place to stay if you want some relaxing ambiance and get closed to nature especially if you have your cabin erected in the woods. Nick Farrow has created a not only relaxing cabin but also an eco-friendly one. What made the Cabin of Nick Farrow eco-friendly is the locally sourced materials like timber used in building the cabin. However, locally sourced may not be an enough basis to consider the cabin eco-friendly.

Kola: The Eco-friendly Chair By Mikko Laakkonen

We categorize a certain product eco-friendly accordingly. A certain product can be made of recycled items, used materials that are sustainably sourced, or are manufactured with zero carbon emission. The Kola chir by Mikko Laakkonen, a Finnish designer is an eco-friendly chair not because it uses recycled materials or manufactured with zero carbon emission, but because it is a recyclable piece of furniture. Being a recyclable item, adding garbage to our landfills will be minimized and hopefully soon will be totally eliminated. In addition, the chair looks elegant enough to be on homes with different interiors. However, I find the low backrest uncomfortable when seating in longer period.
