DESIGNING A HOME THAT TREADS LIGHTLY ON THE EARTH

Your home is your sanctuary and as we see a collective shift towards choosing a more conscious selection of products for the home, we thought it was the perfect time to share some insights into how you can design a space that treads lightly on the earth. 

FROM THE FOREST TO YOUR HOME  

The journey begins with choosing pieces that honour their origin. The simple decision to select pieces that are made from ethically-sourced sustainable materials will ensure that your home is filled with items that have a positive impact on the environment. 

When choosing statement pieces such as a dining table it’s essential to ask questions about the chain of custody to gain an understanding of the journey your new piece of furniture went on from the forest to your home. This will help you choose a piece that supports regeneration, biodiversity and the protection of native fauna, which means that it’s something you will cherish even more knowing that you’ve made a conscious decision to design your home with pieces that are imprinted with care. 

LOOK INTO THE FUTURE 

When choosing furniture for your home it’s important to consider your future needs and to make a selection from pieces that are designed with longevity in mind. Consider pieces that will evolve with your style and adapt to the needs of you and your family over the years. This will ensure that every piece you choose will become a statement piece within your home and will reduce your impact on landfill. 

BE PACKAGING WISE

One of the most significant contributors to landfill when it comes to purchasing new pieces is packaging. To reduce your environmental impact, look for pieces that will arrive securely packed in 100% recyclable and biodegradable packaging. This will prevent harm to the environment by stopping petrochemical-based packaging such as polystyrene, from contributing to landfill. 

COME HOME TO NATURE 

We want our homes to feel like a sanctuary, that’s why it’s important to create a space that supports your health and wellbeing. Selecting indoor plants such as Fiddle Leaf Figs, Rubber Plants and Strelitzias will help filter toxins from the air, while also creating a sense of calm and connection to nature. Step into our Paddington Showroom to discover a wide selection of greenery for you to choose from to design a space that makes you feel uplifted.
