You might remember our feature on our friends at Honey Furniture, the wood-furniture company based in Latvia that gives wood the chance for a third life. Zane & Reinis Maskav‘s of Honey Furniture collect discarded wood of old houses that are being renovated and revamp it so that its journey can continue. The Maskavs believe that there is a story behind every piece of wood as it is a witness of history, a time traveller of the past. They believe that by revamping old floorboard panels and repurposing them as bedside tables and mirrors, the story lives on. We personally think that it is a touching tribute to the past as well as a creative way to produce sustainable furniture.
We encourage you to take advantage of revamping and opt for sustainable brands that work to make a difference. Simply by purchasing a bag that is made of discarded material, not only are you drastically decreasing your own consumer footprint, but you are also making sure that mass-and-overproduction is prevented. You can always grab a pair of scissors and some thread and a needle to take revamping into your own hands, but if that is not your cup of tea, do not fret, our sustainable brands are right here waiting for you.
