Green by Design
We love it when shelter publications indulge us in some of green design’s more glamorous and gorgeous byproducts.
As the editors of Kansas City Homes & Gardens wrote in a recent blog post,”wood is strong and durable, can be used inside and out, and is easy to maintain. Best of all, it’s versatile, sustainable and eco-friendly as seen in these furniture pieces below, which can go with just about any style.”
Check out some of the gorgoeous products their well-trained eyes have sourced below:
“Contemporary designer Scott Dworkin creates functional pieces of art that are environmentally friendly. Known for his dining room tables, coffee tables (shown here) and art pieces, he uses exotic maple, redwood and buckeye burl wood.” www.scottdworkindesigns.com
“Another eco-friendly furniture line is Barn Wood Classics Furniture Gallery. Creating armoires, beds, chairs, kitchen islands, hutches (shown here), etc., each piece is made from antique tobacco barns that are around 250 years old and combines a colonial classical style with modern flair.” www.barnwoodclassics.com
“Tile flooring that looks like wood — what a great idea! Hastings Tile & Bath features the PLI Distressed Wood Series, with a porcelain tile ‘wood’ collection that provides finishes to give the look of wood without the possible maintenance problems. This non-slip flooring comes in white (shown here), black and brown.” www.hastingstilebath.com
