SUSTAINABLE LUXURY

The fast paced environment of interior design is requiring designers like myself to acknowledge we must not only follow code and building laws, but must acknowledge and encourage the principles of sustainability in our own design. I have followed this innovative shift with elegance and luxury since most my high-end clients too, prefer eco-friendly and sustainable products.

I prefer to use, for example, the concrete heavy-set chair made from recycled ashcrete that offers rock solid durability. It provides a great art piece and uniqueness to a home that all clients dream to have.

As a designer I appreciate Alexa Lixfeld who follows this trend with the heavy concrete sitting on top of the fragile glass, that is used also to create beautiful perfume bottles.

Sustainability does not have to be boring. Often I will use strong dramatic landscape art and a refreshing bold pink color for the backdrop. The greenery brings decorative elements into a simple scheme.

Sustainability can also mean reusing old elements. In this case we have an old chair that has been completely covered in strands of recycled paper. Giving new character and shape like a hairy animal!

All my clients like to ride around in style. But it doesn’t have to be a car, with the luxury Chanel bicycle they can ride around in style with a clear conscience.

As a designer I try and set a good example for others, and sustainability is also about showing others how they can do their part to help. With urban lifestyle and the often frantic pace of city living many designers can get distracted from what is important. At my design firm I try to keep a healthy appreciation for design and respect for nature.
