Over the past decade the conscientious shopper has become increasingly more sensible about our planet’s fragility and more excited about recycled/upcycled/reclaimed décor options.

Sustainable design has consequentially become one of the fastest growing segment of the interior design industry, offering consumers a vast choice of options for the eco-friendly home; from furniture to lighting, floorings, even curtains and wall coverings... the possibilities are endless.

That has inspired interior designers to look for interior décor ideas that could combine impeccable quality with great style, providing their clients with the right design solutions while satisfying both their concern for the environment as well as their aesthetic vision. The new generation of “reborn” décor no longer needs any compromise on quality, or style.

Moreover the integration of “green” elements in today’s interior design makes a positive statement about the concept of reuse and conservation, while adding ethical value and meaning to a space.

When we learn that a piece of décor, that has immediately caught our eye for its impeccable style, is actually -unsuspectingly- made with recycled/upcycled materials, we are filled with a particular sense of amazement. It is almost magical to witness the transformation from waste into usable art and unique decor.
