Great Green Collaborations in Furniture

Creative reuse of scrap wood by Scrapile furniture studio in New York. A collaboration between Carlos Salgado and Bart Bettencourt. Scrapile makes use of scrap wood from local woodworking shops that might otherwise throw out these valuable leftovers. Reuse or repurposing is the only true form of recycling.

Jenny Argie and Andrew Thornton's furniture designs for children under the name Argington, feature items that can adjust to grow with your child... sustainable design. Fun and simple furniture for kids. And trying to design something that won't be thrown away with all those disposable diapers is a noble goal and pretty green. Check out their simple Galap Rocker" below.
