After learning that there is such a thing as "green" or "eco-friendly" decor and furniture last year, I set out to find a supplier that made this type of furniture. I came across a company called Padama's Plantation. Not only do they distribute beautiful, contemporary, tropical style furniture, they are also a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council. The SFC is a non-profit coalition of suppliers, manufacturers, retailers and designers that promote sustainable practices through networking and education.
Sustainable or renewable materials are plants such as bamboo, rattan and abaca that grow rapidly and have the ability to replenish themselves quickly. Harvesting these types of materials responsibly actually promotes regrowth. This helps limit any damage to the natural ecosystem. Padama's Plantation works closely with the manufacturers who use sustainable practices and makes a concerted effort to package their products in a way that maximizes space usage on containers to reduce the amount of transporting for these products.
The furniture that is made from these renewable, tropical plants, is classy and unique. There are pieces for every room, including bedroom furniture, livingroom furniture and diningroom furniture. Whether you just need a new tropical headboard or an entire bed with bedroom accessories, you can easily add texture and an exotic look to your bedroom with these tropical style furnishings.
Adding tropical style furniture to your livingroom is a great way to create a relaxing, contemporary space that resembles your favorite island resort. You can carry on this look and feel into your diningroom with tropical style dining tables, chairs and barstools. These furnishings bring a sense of nature indoors and there are several different fabric choices for the upholstry.
Going green with this classy yet comfortable tropical furniture has never been easier!
