Furniture design is becoming not only a study in function and sustainability, its becoming more of an art form. Certain kinds of eco-friendly designs can be very expensive, and people are looking for ways to furnish their homes creatively without spending too much money. Eco-Friendly design is becoming very popular for this reason. Homeowner want eco-friendly furniture that is not only good for the environment, but will also allow you to save money.
There are also many retailers, especially on the internet, that are beginning to use reusable, recycled or sustainable materials to build their furniture. Some examples of these materials are bamboo, cork, reclaimed barnwood, recycled plastic and pieces made from FSC certified materials.
Many stray away from using alternative materials because they can not always be found in stores. Instead of just throwing away everything from a room, or rooms, that you are redoing, try to brainstorm ways to reuse some of the pieces that have been used before. It is very easy, and inexpensive, to transform something even just using a new coat of paint and a refinishing.
