My New Favorites from Viva Terra: Eco-Friendly Sofa & More!

A few weeks ago, I sent out a tweet about one of my favorite catalogs:

ikeatweet

I know that many design enthusiasts eagerly anticipate when stores like IKEA and Pottery Barn release their catalogs and new products. And while I like to ogle these catalogs and can appreciate the fabulous design, I’m much more excited when companies like Viva Terra debut new products. Why? Because I know they have been sustainably made and I can feel good about buying anything I discover that I can’t live without :)

I ventured over to the Viva Terra site today, and I found LOTS that I am really excited about. Here are some of my favorites:

vivaterra1

Eco Sectional Sleeper: Made with a certified sustainable wood frame, water-based wood finishes, recycled fiber filling in the pillows, soy-based filling in the cushions, and organic cotton ticking with tufted buttons framed by linen. $4950. (aff)

vivaterra2

Etched Silver Armoire: LOVE this! It’s not quite as green as I would like, given that it’s made with German silver, but it is also made with reclaimed wood. $995. (aff)

Flowing Script Chair: Made of recycled metal and upholstered in linen. $349. (aff)

vivaterra3

Vintage Kantha Upholstered Chair: The patchwork fabric is handmade by Indian artisans from vintage cotton saris. The chair also features organic linen upholstery fabric, recycled fibers, down pillow fill, and certified kiln-dried hardwood frames. $2595-2695. (aff)

vivaterra4

Meadowflower Rug: I can remember watching my mother crochet blankets and Christmas ornaments as a little girl, and this rug reminds me of that. The flowers are delicately handmade, but the color scheme and randomly shaped edges give the rug a modern look. Hand-crocheted of wool. $395-795. (aff)

vivaterra5

Moroccan Hanging Lamps: Do I even need to explain why these caught my eye? Handmade of recycled aluminum. $149-449. (aff)

vivaterra6

Ikat Dinnerware: I had to save the best for last. I LOVE this dinnerware! This is the type of setting I could easily see passing down to my kids. Handmade by an artisan ceramicist. $98-349. (aff)

There are many more new items that I’d like to share, but you can check them out for yourself at the Find natural home décor, unique women’s accessories, elegant dinnerware, organic gifts and more at VivaTerra site. Seriously, I think this is one of my favorite product debuts in a while.

    I don’t know that I could pull off saris on chairs, but they are wonderfully colorful. I love that silver armoire too.

    This stuff is beautiful and I love the idea of it, but it\’s not the least bit affordable….I guess you have to stick to thrift shops if you want to stay within a reasonable budget.

    Personally, I’m not a fan of big box stores like IKEA or Pottery Barn at all. They do make eye pleasing designs, but they are poorly built. The products you showed are just as stunning from a design standpoint, but the products put into them, and the craftmanship were done with care.

    Wow, you’ve got great taste and beautiful style. To the comment above, I too love the silver armoire but yes, it is expensive. I recently found a dresser at a second hand store, repainted it with VOC free paint, and it looks pretty similar to this one.
