Eco-friendly furniture can be found in all sorts of places – you can seek out the latest sleek Eco-gadgets to deliver long term affordability to your home’s energy needs, or look for pre-loved furnishings in garage sales or auctions that will give your home a lived-and-loved personality, full of stories and character, as well as being fabulously green.
Be inspired by vintage looks and antique furnishings for your home. Search for rare, genuine, one-of-a-kind item that you wouldn’t be able to buy on the high street. But don’t pay for bad quality; always check that the item is in good condition unless you intend to repair it.
Vintage and antique collectables vary from collections of vintage dinner plates to antique French furniture. They vary in scale as much as they do in cost, and some will take up your time and effort to find whereas others will be readily available.
Truly interesting and unique furniture can be found in thrift shops. Of course, to find any thrift furniture that’s perfect for your home will take some time, but it will be worth it. It’s very environmentally friendly, and a great way to explore your interior design personality.
