It’s getting easier to find eco-friendly furniture and housewares on sale, but I almost never find sustainable, home decor weight fabrics discounted in the same way. One Kings Lane made my day today! They are offering 6 different Mod Green Pod fabrics (including the one I bought to reupholster my cane chair) for a little more than 50% off! You can get 2 yards for $39, a nice break from the regular price of $80. :: READ THE FULL POST
Why It’s Green:
- Mod Green Pod fabrics are made of 100% organic cotton
- Cotton grown, woven, and printed in the United States using non-toxic pigments
I can’t be the only one who looks forward to West Elm’s announcements that they’ve released new products. My excitement is doubled, however, because of the fact that West elm is one of the mainstream retailers of home goods that seems to be truly committed to providing greener product options for their customers. To be sure, this doesn’t apply to their entire product selection, but they consistently include products that are sustainable in some way.
Here are some of my favorite green products from their latest release:

After researching green products for so long, it’s become increasingly rare for me to come across products or a company that I’ve never seen before. Yesterday, discount retailer Haute Look delivered a surprise that reminded me more and more companies are venturing into green manufacturing. 108 Mala is one of those companies, and boy, have they got it right!
Their gorgeous organic cotton bedding, towels and bags are handmade by skilled artisans under Fair Trade conditions. These products allow them to earn a sustainable income that they can put back into their communities. Every product is made of sustainable textiles like organic cotton, recyclable and lead-free materials, vegan materials and natural dyes. And did I mention that they are beautiful? :: READ THE FULL POST
Remember the cane chair I found at a yard sale last summer? Well, after looking at it for months, I finally bought some fabric for it when Mod Green Pod had a sale a few weeks back. MGP released their organic cotton Anticipate fabric in a new color not long ago, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was perfect for this project! The chair is relatively small, so I wanted fabric featuring large-scale pattern.
My husband and I plan to paint the chair white and reupholster the seat and back cushions. And I’m really looking forward to getting my hands dirty again! It’s been too long since I’ve had a project!
Every few months, I take a look at the parts of this site that people are using most and try to improve it however I can. As such, I’ve added a few new features in the last couple of weeks:
I wanted to make it easy for old and new readers to find projects I’ve done in my own home without having to scroll through my archives. I created the House Tour page to collect all of them in one place. You’ll find photos of the rooms in my home, along with links to any related posts and the places where you can buy the items I used (if you’re interested). :: READ THE FULL POST
