Raw may seem the antithesis to luxury, yet there's something warm and comforting about a space that encompasses raw, natural materials. You can't help but feel grounded, down to earth and environmentally friendly. Using natural materials in your design space is not only good for the environment, it's also totally on trend. You're seeing companies like Noir Trading/CFC, Peninsula Home Collection, and Four Hands put their own spin on sustainable furnishings.
Noir Furniture and CFC build their furniture the old-fashioned way, using high quality, properly dried solid wood. What's so great about Noir and CFC product is the ability to complement multiple interior design styles including classical, traditional, mid-century modern and contemporary. Plus, CFC is made in the USA.
Peninsula Home brings us its traditional designs from Peru. As a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, they make every effort to deliver environmentally friendly products, using certified woods and materials that minimize their impact on the planet.
Four Hands makes it a priority to provide sustainable materials from around the world to its Designer Circle. Their reclaimed collections including Post & Rail, Settler, Toscana, Irish Coast and Cornwall use a mix of solid FSC-certified woods.
