Ever since Jack Johnson turned "reduce, reuse, recycle" into something you hum on your morning commute, people have been rethinking the notion of trash. At this year's Dwell on Design, the showhouse collaboration between ecofabulous and Reclaimed Space produced a 400 square foot eco-luxe cabin designed using high quality vintage, repurposed and restyled items found on eBay and at local antique and salvage stores. The house sold to T.J Thyne, a star of Bones after an all-star bidding frenzy - a portion of the proceeds benefited Habitat for Humanity LA.

Take a quick tour of the space and then click here for an interview with both ecofabulous founder, Zem Joaquin, and eBay Green Team's Annie Lescroart, as they field some questions from visitors of the showhouse about the innovative project, emerging business and consumer trends surrounding vintage and reclaimed materials and ecofabulous's unique and chic approach to design.

The pre-fab, A.K.A. re-fab, structure was built by Austin-based company, Reclaimed Space, out of 90% reclaimed materials - much of the wood and metal was 80-100 years old! - and the interiors are totally Ecofabulous (TM)!
