My Bespoke Room

Such an interesting article, we encourage our clients wherever possible to re-use and re-purpose existing furniture pieces, artwork etc and are always happy to incorporate existing items into our room designs for clients. It would be great to see more articles on sustainability in design.

Interesting article... good to see new innovative products coming along.

Another thing to bear in mind is where things are made... if your sustainable materials have to travel half way round the world to get to the end user they end up not being so 'eco friendly' after all?
