Eco-style on a Modest Budget

21Jun06

Ok, I was going to pass on today’s entry because I have several design project deadlines to meet and a final exam to study for; but I couldn’t help myself when I discovered Vivaterra was having a sale on a variety of green style pieces available on a West Elm budget. After doing a little virtual shopping my favorite discounted pics are:

These Honeycomb Bowls (see above) made from recycled metal bowls ($34-62) are stunning whether they hold goodies or not. The interconnecting rings create a delicate texture that make an industrial-modern yet warm statement to a tabletop.

The felted Barefoot Wool Rug made from New Zealand wool and some recycled fibers is currently 30% off.

Two more things that aren’t on sale but meet modest budgets include the Twisty Stool ($195) which is carved from a single piece of sustainable, monkey pod wood (need confirm if it’s FSC-certified wood and will report back–I’m a stickler about such things). Resembling a Mobius Strip or an Infinity symbol, it surely would bring good karma to any space.

Finally the Love Nest bowl is a dervish of antiqued brass coils of recycled, hand-shaped wire. It comes with a pair of glowing glass eggs that rest inside. I would personally take the bowl alone but it’s a beautiful little decorative for only $39.

Viva vendita! Did I say that right?
