Antique and vintage goods are both stylish and sustainable. 

They have a low carbon footprint thanks to their existing lifespan and they help reduce deforestation because no trees are being cut to produce them.

They help reduce landfill because, unlike mass-produced non-recyclables, they are high quality in material and craft, and are destined to outlive most other possessions.

Everything we buy interacts with the environment. Second hand furniture and accessories are not only unique, characterful and nostalgic, but also contribute to a sustainable home.

Designer Spotlight | Gio Ponti

Gio Ponti was an Italian designer and architect born in 1891. In his early life Ponti aspired to be an artist and went on to study Architecture at the Polytechnic of Milan where he later taught as a professor from 1936 to 1961. After Graduating Ponti opened a studio with fellow architect Emilio Lancia in 1927. Ponti was a conceptualist who throughout his work tied together architecture and interior design creating cohesive and magical spaces stamped with his individual brand of modernism.

Ponti’s many achievements include founding Domus magazine, becoming the artistic director of Fontana Arte, and designing over 250 structures, pieces of furniture, lighting, machines, lamps, ceramics, textiles, tiles and glassware.
