Functionality and necessity drive the design of this ultra-efficient task lamp. It makes the most of its frame and its space through every feature: Pixo’s swiveling light shade and highly maneuverable arm lend it maximum utility within a minimal footprint. Its compact, energy-saving LED light is infinitely adjustable, allowing the user to focus warm, glare-free light wherever needed. The base integrates a USB port for charging mobile devices. Even more, the upper and lower pieces ship detached from one another to reduce packing materials and shipping costs.
At first glance, the Biella Sofa by Gamma is all about aesthetic appeal thanks to its clean lines and unique base. But take a moment, and a seat. Feel the comfort of the thick leather, comfortable seat cushions, and adjustable headrests all while knowing you’re getting a quality construction that has been responsibly made. Also available in sectional configurations, the Biella can work in any space.
The Opera Cocktail Table by Natuzzi Italia features a simplistic design with clean cut lines and smooth edges. Constructed using solid ash legs and a coffee stained wood top, the Opera offers beauty not only in its visual appeal but in its responsibly made construction as well. Natuzzi is not only extremely energy efficient in their production process, but they also make the best use of materials during the actual construction process in order to save precious timber resources.
The People Wall Mount Entertainment Console by Pianca is artistic and unique, drawing attention to itself through its unusual composition of elements as well as its unexpected functions. Made in Italy, this unit is just as chic as it is environmentally conscious. Glass shelves, doors, and wire management are all discreetly hidden within the matte lacquer cabinet. Pianca has created a packaging system that reduces the use of Styrofoam and plastic materials used to pack furniture by as much as 95%.
Sleep easier, knowing your mattress has been constructed with the environment in mind.

Vi-Spring uses only the finest all-natural materials for its beds – raw silk, warm cashmere, springy horsetail, strong coir and supple bamboo–no synthetic foam or glue are used in their mattresses.
