Green and conscious consumerism at its finest.

There are several ways to ride the green tide at home; one of them is to get your home furnished with sustainable furniture.

What is sustainable furniture, you ask? It is essentially pieces that can be continually reused, disassembled and then reused again. Or it could be furniture that can be used for a lifetime. Most sustainable furniture companies also focus on reducing the environmental impact of their items, such as using reclaimed materials or non-toxic furniture stains.

The environmental impact, and importance, of buying eco-friendly furniture is often overlooked. But with a raft of eco-friendly and ethically-minded furniture brands popping up all over the little red dot these days, shopping for eco-friendly and green furniture doesn’t necessarily need to be complicated or expensive.

One thing you should know about buying sustainable furniture, besides ensuring the durability of the pieces, it’s also important to check if the furniture stores meet standard requirements and carry certain international certifications issued by non-profit organisations.

The two most commonly observed international certifications in Singapore include the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) and The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The PEFC promotes sustainable forest management through forest certification, while the PSC issue certificates for forestry operations that meet their requirements.

From using reclaimed wood to using materials that are sustainably-sourced, here are seven eco-friendly and green furniture brands you should shop at. Not only will they make you feel proud of yourself for taking a step towards saving the Earth, the pieces will also add style and glamour to your living space.
