Barnyard chic meets modern in Forma Living’s collection of home furnishings. This company is committed to sustainable design with lighting, rugs, accessories, and furniture that use eco-friendly or recycled materials, or are created from salvaged pieces. Don’t you just love an online store where you can shop without having to think about whether the products you’re buying are really green?
And aren’t the Bird Cage Lamps shown above fun? The bulk of the lamps are created from Buri, the center stalk of a palm frond. I can easily picture one of these in a Moroccan-inspired nursery, or hanging over a rustic, reclaimed wood dining table. :: READ THE FULL POST
It is very rare for me to find great deals on two brands I love as much as these two. But today, the Foundary has outdone itself with sales on both Perch! Designs’ beautiful ceramic tableware and lighting AND AphroChic’s gorgeous silk and linen pillows and textiles. I’ve rarely seen either of these brands offer sales or discounts, so this is a great opportunity.
Perch! offers a gorgeous line of whimsical, colorful ceramics, and the sale includes some of their most popular pieces. You can get your hands on their Spot bowls or Early Bird light for up to 40% off. :: READ THE FULL POST
One of the things I most wish we could do to our apartment is add lighting where there is none and replace boring fixtures with ones that are more fun.

So I’m feeling particularly envious of the High-Minded Chandelier and Well-Defined Lamp by Stray Dog Designs for Anthropologie.
Stray Dog has long been one of my favorite makers of sustainable lighting. All of their pieces are made with sustainability in mind, and these two are no exception.

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