New Choices in Green Design

Every day interior designers are being asked to create eco-chic interiors for their sophisticated clients who want luxury with their good intentions. Sustainable design is not just a trend for 2009, but an ongoing way of life. New environmentally-sound choices from floor to ceiling are appearing almost daily, from reclaimed materials like stone, wood, and glass to sustainable materials like bamboo, cork and soy-based products. And for the green at heart there is perhaps no greater option than adding antiques to your design mix. Not only do they add a dash of personality and character to an interior, but they are the ultimate recycled objects. Our design expert Michael Barnum will show you the latest technologies and newest ideas for your eco-friendly interior design.
