Cool Outrageous Stuff: Feel-Good Furnishings for the Planet

A Rug to Remember

“Old craft, new ideas” is the mantra at Loloi Rugs. Their rugs are hand-woven and made from wool and cotton, maintaining a thoughtful commitment to their craft while fostering innovation and collaboration. They partner with brands such as ED by Ellen DeGeneres, Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines, Rifle Paper Co. by Anna Bond, and other big names to curate unique collections that reach a wider audience. Loloi Rugs also works with a nonprofit called GoodWeave that audits their factories in India to ensure working conditions are safe and voluntary.

Available in multiple sizes, starting at $379* on www.rugs-direct.com.

*Direct purchase from Loloi requires a dealer account. Search an online retailer for inventory.


A Seat You Can’t Beat

The Townes Chair from Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams (MGBW) is handcrafted in North Carolina with the environment in mind. Their “Eco-Luxe” cushion is free of fire-retardant chemicals, contains ozone friendly foam and padding (up to 10% soy), and is wrapped in 80% regenerated fibers. Even the back pillows (sold separately) contain recycled fibers from plastic bottles. From inception to delivery, MGBW takes care of their products to ensure a premium and convenient experience. They will even unpack, inspect, and assemble the product in its new home!

$2,420 at www.mgbwhome.com.


Get Savvy with Saatva

Saatva mattresses stick to a few guiding principles: sell a high-quality product at a fair price, provide great customer service, and show respect for people and the environment. Their award-winning classic mattress uses 100% organic cotton for its covering and delivers comfort with softness and durability. Each mattress is made to order and hand-delivered, allowing customers to rest easy as they begin their 180 day trial period. With numerous styles and comfort levels to choose from, every customer can find their perfect fit.

Available in multiple sizes, starting at $887 at www.saatva.com.


Walls for Wildlife 

If these walls could speak, they would tell a story of passionate design and conservation. Based out of the U.K., Newton Paisley creates wallpapers that are hand-drawn by conservation biologist Susan Paisley and made with recycled materials. They approach production with minimal waste or energy required and only use water-based, environmentally friendly ink, free from harmful chemicals. This piece of art also makes a statement for protecting land; for every meter of fabric sold, 100 meters of wild habitat is preserved through their collaboration with World Land Trust.

Starting at $331 per roll at www.newtonpaisley.com.


Reclaimed Purpose

re.dwell is a custom furniture business operating out of Grand Rapids, MI with a focus on responsibly sourced wood. Over 75% of the materials used in their furniture come from reclaimed and recycled lumber, finding potential and creativity in what would otherwise end up in a landfill. The company is committed to rejecting illegal or irresponsible sources that cause harm to our forest resources, all the while creating thoughtful and sustainable pieces for their customers.
