Choose Sustainable Home Furnishings with Beautiful Pieces from DesignPhilippines
Great design following the principles of sustainability.
Producing furniture and decor that is sustainable and eco-friendly also means creating pieces that are meant to last for a long time and not clog a landfill in just a few years’ time. Eco-friendly furniture means less pollution and waste in production.
DesignPhilippines has taken this idea to heart with companies that upcycle scraps into wearable fashion, establishing circular production within communities, and even creating innovative materials that fit sustainable principles of recycling, biodegradable, ethical, and communal.
Going Green from the Grassroots
In the Philippines, more and more companies strive to create sustainable businesses. Manufacturing has the two-fold goal of producing products fit for the global stage, and empowering and uplifting the lives of indigent communities through a dignified means of livelihood.
The aesthetic for sustainable decor and furniture has progressed from more natural and organic shapes and hues. Expect to see unique styles that are updated with new trends and colors and made with the skilled artistry that shows off local techniques.
Gearing Up for Global Orders
This year’s unifying theme of “Stitch” was conceptualized by Nazareno/Lichauco. The theme explores various methods of stitching, joining, and mending.
