Eco-friendly furniture: designer products made from recycled materials.

Eco-friendly-furniture

When we talk about eco-friendly products, we mean all those products that aim to respect and care for the environment, both in terms of nature and the animal world. All good practices, objects, productions and consumptions aimed at saving energy and waste that use recycling of materials in the production system are to be considered eco-friendly, i.e. “friendly” towards Planet Earth.

Eco-friendly-furniture 1

The need to produce eco-friendly furniture and objects arose because of the deleterious consequences of global warming and has grown stronger in recent years, becoming a term in common use and a hallmark of many companies. In this sense, craft enterprises, but increasingly also larger industrial companies are becoming more and more attentive to this issue by carefully choosing the materials to be processed, limiting waste or basing their business precisely on recycling and creative reuse.

The fundamentals of eco-sustainability are the use of natural raw materials, recycling and energy saving. A famous example applied to the industrial production of chairs is the Emeco manufacturer.

Navy chair emeco

Emeco produces the iconic 111 Navy chairs from recycled Coca Cola bottles. In 2006, Coca-Cola approached Emeco to solve an environmental problem — taking Coca-Cola bottles out of landfill and “upcycling” them into an iconic structural item, made to last. Emeco committed to the challenge with the new material, taking soft recycled PET plastic, originally intended for short-lived fabric and textiles, and build a tough, one-piece, scratch-resistant chair for heavy-duty use. The development process required both determination and tenacity – and the help of experts at BASF. Finally, after 4 years of development, the chair was ready.

Emeco navy 111 chair

Another example of eco-friendly furniture is the Broom chair designed by Philippe Starck. Broom  in 2012 was Emeco’s first collection featuring reclaimed polypropylene with wood that would normally be swept into the trash. “Imagine,” says Philippe Starck, “there is a guy who takes a humble broom and starts to clean the work-shop and with this dust of nothing, with this he makes new magic. That’s why we call it Broom.”

The Green’s chair by SitLand was instead the first multi-use and comfortable 100% recyclable chair in the field of technical public seats, waiting rooms and common spaces. 100% recyclable, this modern chair represents the new aware approach to the issue of environmental impact.

As an eco-sustainable strategy, many manufacturers, especially in northern Europe, have specialised in the production of all-wood furniture, from tables to chairs, from sofas to beds. The collection of the English company Ercol can be a good example.

Renovating a Loft with Style

Renovating a loft with style: ideas and tips for decorating the most modern and exclusive of rooms!

Loft design 0

A loft is a large industrial space that has been converted into a private home, maintaining the structure and highlighting the typical characteristics of the industrial style. The result is an exclusive, luxurious space in which various styles are combined with elegance and sobriety.

Loft design 1

In a loft there will certainly be no lack of natural light, as the large windows will illuminate the space extensively, also allowing you to opt for dark colours on the furniture or walls without adding to the visual effect.

Loft design 2

If you decide to renovate a loft, you have to bear in mind that, since it is a modern or ultra-modern environment, you will need to focus on exclusive, designer furniture; in fact, filling a loft with furniture that lacks personality will detract from the entire environment.

Loft design 3

Open Space Kitchen

The often open-plan kitchen, i.e. in a single room that also includes the dining room and living room, is the focal point of a loft. Due to the large spaces available, interior designers opt for large island kitchens made of stainless steel and surrounded by bar stools. The dining room is often composed of long metal tables surrounded by industrial-style chairs such as the Navy chair

Living Room

To renovate the living room you can play with creativity by opting for extra-large colourful sofas and armchairs with original shapes, bookcases as high as the walls or placed in the middle of the room to divide the living room into two parts; another idea, for example, is to use glass partitions…

Bedroom

The bedroom in a loft is characterised by simplicity, minimalism and essentiality. A double bed upholstered in fabric or leather in the middle of the room with a bedside table on each side or a coffee table, a rug and an exclusive design or art object. That’s all it takes for a chic yet functional bedroom!

Loft design 5

Bathroom

The bathroom in a loft is definitely the realm of luxury! There is plenty of space for dream bathtubs as well as exclusive showers to enjoy a warm bath with a wonderful view of the city. Again, the style will be minimalist and will be enhanced by the design and quality of the elements such as washbasins, bathtub, shower, etc.

Choosing the Right Cushions for the Sofa.

Living room decor

Choosing the right cushions for the sofa: here some interesting ideas to give a touch of color to the living room.

Sancal cushions collection

Choosing cushions for the sofa and arranging them in the right way can be a fun experience because with a little imagination and a few tricks you can create an original, lively and never boring living room.

Sancal Barnaba sofa

Sancal party sofa

An interior designer is not necessary in this case. What is important is that the visual impact is harmonious. To achieve this harmony, it is advisable to adapt the size of the cushions to the size of the sofa. This means that if the sofa is very large, it is better not to opt for cushions that are too small. And vice versa, if the sofa is small, it is better to discard large cushions.

Sancal talo sofa

Sancal sumo sofa

It is advisable to combine several cushions together so that they can be arranged symmetrically ( or not) on either side of the sofa. This does not mean that they must be identical in colour, fabric or pattern; on the contrary, it is better to create interesting colour contrasts between the various cushions and the sofa. If, on the other hand, you prefer a more sober style, we recommend opting for the elegant neutral tones of grey, beige or cream.

Sancal obi sofa

Sancal rew sofa

The more empty space we leave in the middle of the sofa, the more minimal the result will be; the less space we leave, the more cosy and hygge the result will be. The number of cushions is a personal choice. Obviously on a small sofa it will be better to keep the number small, while on a large sofa you can indulge a little more.

Decorating with lamps: how to make the home functional and comfortable with light.

decorating with lamps

Artificial light, but also natural light, is one of the most important components of any home. The quality of life, comfort and ability to concentrate all depend on the way the lights are arranged and the type of lighting you choose to provide.

living room lamps

Every room in the house must be lit differently, adapting to the shape and furnishings of each individual room to meet all requirements at different times of day.

living room lamps 1

Large chandeliers and floor lamps are generally used in living rooms or dining rooms, which are multi-functional rooms used for many hours by the whole family. In the kitchen, you can opt for suspended lamps with cold light if the room is small, or with warm light if the room is large and characterised by a more classic style.

For the lighting of the reading room or home office it is advisable to choose suspended lamps accompanied by a table lamp, which can decorate the room in a classy way and provide additional light support for the eyes.

The choice of lighting in the home should also be made by studying the effect of the combination of light, colour and furniture style. The best result will be achieved when the room, be it the living room, the kitchen or the bedroom, is lit in a uniform and enveloping way.

Lamps and chandeliers are therefore not just furnishing accessories, but become the main focus around which everything else revolves, in a harmonious combination of light, colour and furniture.

To be able to design an ad hoc lighting system for the house, it is necessary to carefully evaluate every aspect, starting with the natural light available in each room and then focusing on the lighting systems.

It is not necessary to furnish the whole house with expensive designer pieces.
