pure… sustainable luxury

… 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!
