I'm restoring my house, and I wanted to use only furniture built with ecological criteria. It isn't easy ..... I found some nice things in the Netherlands and Italy.
Furniture made to last and age well, and I think this is the real green design!
I need some advice on U.S. manufacturers

I found these: Woodly, Web Link
and Brikolor Web Link
Germany: Flöhrdesign Web Link

We visited Inhabiture recently, and liked what we saw.....at first. At second look, the prices are very, very high. As much as we like their furniture, it is just too pricey.

There used to be a Biedermeier store on Welch Rd in the Stanford Barn, but it went under rather quickly for the same reason. Beautiful furniture for billionaires only.

Nothing too impressive, better in concept - and hopefully as designers - than as a retail store.
