Selecting any piece of furniture for your home is an important decision. Finding the balance between style, function, and form can be tricky enough, but have you ever thought about the impact on the planet from your home decor choices?

One of the biggest interior design trends of the moment is Sustainable Furniture - thankfully, the days of tacky, 70's rattan are long gone and have been replaced with thoughtful, considered and stylish eco-friendly furniture that not only looks beautiful but is good for the environment too.

So, what makes a piece of furniture sustainable?

At its core, sustainable furniture encompasses sourcing raw materials from sustainable origins and ensuring that any production or processes used in creating the furniture are eco-friendly and kind to the environment.

Sustainable Furniture Birch Plywood

It's fair to say we're big fans of creating and producing sustainable furniture here at Little Deer. We craft our solid oak Clothing Rack from wood that is approved by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) sources and our handmade Jewellery Stands, Desks, Pegboards and Shelving Units are made using birch plywood, which is a long lasting and renewable resource.

Bamboo is another super sustainable material with stunning style credentials. It grows fast, it's versatile to work with, and it's durable, making it the perfect choice for furniture and home decor. Take a look at our collection of Bamboo Furniture Chairs, Plant Stands and Table Placemats to see just how stylish and practical this eco-friendly material can be.

Another key consideration when looking for the best eco-friendly furniture or home decor for your home is choosing to shop with businesses committed to reducing waste, using eco-friendly packaging, and giving something back to the environment - like us! We use environmentally friendly and recyclable packaging wherever possible, plus for every order placed on our website, we plant a tree in partnership with Ecologi. You can take a look and see how our forest is growing here.

Sustainable furniture and eco-friendly home decor are more than just a trend; it's the considered consumer choice that will be here to stay, and with our handcrafted Sustainable Furniture and curated collections of Eco-Friendly Home Decor, you can continue to make your home look stylish guilt-free.
