Abstract

There is an increasing market for all things ‘green’, but all the green products in the world won’t necessarily create a ‘green’ interior design solution. Understanding the importance of the life cycle is equally important as the material choice – it’s the way the materials are used which can change ordinary furniture and furnishings into sustainable ones.
