Sustainable Midcentury Modern Furnishings

Every day is Earth Day at touchGOODS. Aside from our love of neutral and natural tones found in nature, and filling your indoor and outdoor spaces with plants, we're into pieces and concepts that that honor the environment while exemplifying midcentury modern design. Sustainability is at our core with brands that responsibly source materials, use ethical practices, and give back to create products that are meant to last a lifetime. These ideals help to limit waste while supporting the planet and its people. We could go on and on - but we'll keep it short and sweet. Here's a little insight into what two of our favorite brands are doing to limit their impact on the environment...

RAINBOW AIR PLANT MAGNET

[For every air plant magnet sold, a new tree is planted!]

For more than 70 years, Sika Design has been producing beautiful, handmade rattan furnishings that elevate outdoor living spaces. Rattan is the second fastest growing material for furniture, regenerating in the span of five to seven years. Solid, strong, and durable, rattan naturally helps preserve the rainforest, and produces up to 35% more oxygen than a tree! Literally built to last, we love Sika Design's sleek and modern look that is the perfect complement to East End living. You're basically just lounging on nature. What's better than that?

Oh Gus* Modern, you'll always have our hearts! Eco-friendly cushion fill made of a clean, ultra soft, long-strand fiber material offers the comfort and feel of traditional waterfowl down. This synthetic material is created through a process that benefits the environment by diverting plastic bottles away from landfills, waterways and oceans. Gus* also hosts shopping events with an impact - everything from planting trees to cleaning up oceans. Yay, planet!

The other beauty about these brands and lines available at touchGOODS is that they were designed to last. You don't need to replace your furniture, indoors or out, with each season or even every few years. Maintain what you have and you'll be just fine. Being green is the new black, after all.
