Furniture manufacturer Environment says it is. And their clients, which include Julia Roberts and Leonardo DiCaprio seem to agree. That said, they can also boast the services of Jean-Marie Massaud as their Creative Director along with fellow Italian’s Aldo Cibic and Alessandro La Spada, all with very impressive CVs, to give nature a helping hand.
Environment takes its eco-credentials seriously using reclaimed, recycled and re-purposed woods and canvas. The designs show genuine respect for the materials allowing the natural qualities of wood to be fully apparent. They also actively raise awareness of environmental issues claiming the mission of ‘create beauty – respect the planet’.
We sometimes struggle to find just four or five items of furniture to illustrate a manufacturers range while maintaining the interest of the reader. More than that and we think we are in danger of losing you. This time, however, we’re knocking ourselves out. The Environment catalogue features over a hundred pages of really lovely furniture. Here’s a selection.
Made from reclaimed Dunnage Wood the Butcher Table is one of our favourite Environment products. A triumph of allowing functionality and material shape design. Wonderful.
That said, we love all their tables. This is the Leblon End Table, complete with an inlay of naturally weathered Peroba Rosa wood set into the table top.
And this is the Campinas X Side Table made from Mahogany from Tropical Forest Trust (TFT) approved suppliers and reclaimed Brazilian Peroba Rosa.
We may have mentioned that we love shoes, bags and scarves almost as much as we like furniture. Well Environment don’t do shoes, but..
But they do do scarves made of organic hemp that has been organically dyed and beautifully hand stitched in California. Available in white, charcoal, plum, olive and sand. And we think we should get one for doing this long plug for you, Environment!!
And when you are taking this bag you know the weekend is going to be good!
We couldn’t chose our favourite bed, so here’s a couple;
And the Montecristo Bed made from reclaimed Brazilian Peroba Rosa; Headboard Cushion- recycled army tent canvas, Grade 2 linen, or leather.
