Sustainability
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 | Charlotte Perriand

Designer, Architect, Pioneer and Social Activist.

Born in Paris in 1903 Charlotte Perriand was an innovator of modern and functional design. At the age of 24, during her studies, she visited Le Corbusier’s atelier and had the opportunity to show Le Corbusier her sketches. Le Corbusier's reaction was ‘We don’t embroider cushions here.’ Perriand persevered and invited him to a show she was exhibiting in, he attended and hired her immediately. Perriand’s designs went against the grain of traditional highly decorative furniture and featured clean lines and simple shapes made in contemporary materials such as chrome. She also designed open plan living.

Perriand spent the next ten years collaborating with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, she was responsible for interior design and furniture at the atelier and together they were described as ‘three fingers on one hand.’

Before the Second World War Perriand witnessed mass poverty and homelessness in Paris, wanting to affect social change she began finding solutions to create practical and affordable housing for the entire population, that would vastly improve the quality of life for the masses. After stepping out of her colleague's shadow Perriand went on to have a very successful career. At the heart of her work was the message that better design creates a better society.
