or just a nice cushy pillow to curl up with… heads up Horchow, I see a new product coming your way!
… anything done well is quite a luxury...
so when it is referring to sustainable products done well they must meet certain standards to catch my attention. If you have read my blog before you will know that I am a proponent of green design done well...
There are a lot of eco-friendly products on the market… especially compared to what was available just a few years ago. This change has been brought about by market demands and product awareness by consumers. The demands have broadened the production capabilities for such products and provide the product designers the support system that is needed for production of their creative visions.
Even with the increased supply and selection of sustainable products, the vast majority of products labeled green or sustainable (and I referring to the home furnishings end of it here) quite frankly don’t impress me. Embellishing instant oatmeal with toppings may work for breakfast… but not for interior design.
Edward Ferrell has created a collection of sustainable
furnishings that one would be hard pressed to recognize as such when comparing to much of the conventional green furnishings… meaning… they are absolutely gorgeous!
I can’t think of a better way to spend a third of my life than wrapped between layers of sumptuous cashmere sheets!
Few things are as luxurious as cashmere… so one of the ultimate indulgences has to be bed linens made from 100% cashmere. Can you even imagine! Well, for those that want to self indulge, or are looking for a gift for the person that has everything… and money is insignificant… then Manrico may have the perfect selection for you. But if you must ask… a king sized set including duvet cover will be approximately $7500.00 .
MANRICO is an Italian Company founded in 1993 specializing in the manufacturing of cashmere. In 2007, after four years of research, MANRICO invented and patented the ultimate product in this industry…
This incredible result was achieved by perfecting the balance between the nature of cashmere and the technology through innovations.
The Cashmere Bed Sheets will change your perception of a good night sleep. You will feel the best performance of this material: thermo-regulating, it warms you up when it is cold; it keeps you cool when it is hot and humid. The softness…the lightness… all that plus they are machine washable and dryable.
There is a choice of over 200 colours, many combinations of design with any personalization or special request.
A designer with a pragmatic respect and support for eco-friendly, sustainable living and design through entrepreneurial creativity and market demands from the private sector.
