Organic prints are popular these days, showing up everywhere from bedding to stationery, clothing and wallpaper. Lighting is no exception. And in my opinion, it’s even better when those organic patterns stick to their natural roots and come attached to green products. Thankfully, the Onionpods Pendant lamp by Paper Cloud fits the bill in all respects.
There are lots of reasons I love interior decorating and design, but one of the most prominent is the fact that I get to hunt for new and undiscovered (at least to me) treasures every day. Every time I find a beautiful new piece of eco-friendly furniture, wall art or some other type of decor, it literally makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. This modern, minimal Sedge Lounge Chair from the pure Collection by Ami McKay does more than just that: it makes me want to curl up in it on a rainy day with my daughter curled in my lap reading Cinderella for the millionth time. It makes me want to live in it.
Who can argue with a pillow that is beautiful and recycled, not to mention handmade? It’s tough to do, isn’t it? This gorgeous graphic octagonal pattern would be a striking addition to your decor. It is made completely from recycled wool sweaters washed and dried until the texture feels like super-soft felt. The fabric is then hand-cut and sewn together to create a unique tile pattern in a modern color scheme of white, yellow and gray. The pillow the perfect size to accent your bedding, chair or sofa at 18″ x 18″. It doesn’t come with a pillow insert, but that can be seen as a positive: it gives you an opportunity to give an existing pillow new life and avoid the production of a new pillow insert. And I’m sure your old throw pillows would appreciate having a new look as gorgeous as this one.
I’ve been really into wallpaper lately. In fact, a beautiful damask inspired the background of the GYD header and the gray page background. It has a way of creating drama in a space that can’t be matched by many other products or treatments. A lot of people think it went out with the 70′s — and they’re right. That gaudy, floral, monstrosity covering the walls of your grandmother’s bathroom has long been out of style. But when you have manufacturers like Graham & Brown creating beauties like this Alice Wallpaper, you have to stop and take notice.
Since the Amia chair is helping us glam up our workspaces, I figured we have to find an equally appealling, equally green desk to finish off the office. The Delta Desk by Brave Space Design has a striking, unique form in a natural wood finish that reminds you of it’s eco-friendly qualities.
We all know how cramped and cluttered desktops can get. Thankfully, this one is designed to allow you to utilize some of the space under the main work surface. It has winged shelves that allow you to use to store peripherals that normally would take up valuable work space.
