Earth Day Inspirations

Earth Day Inspirations

We’re taking a break this week from our “Energize Your Life” series to talk a little about Earth Day.

I’ve always been inspired by nature in my design work. Its unique beauty is something you can’t replicate. Which is why I’m always excited to find gorgeous pieces that have little or no impact on nature in the process. This Friday, April 22 is Earth Day (and this is also Earth Week!), so I thought I’d share a few earth-friendly items I currently adore.

For the wine cellar I designed at this year’s OC Philharmonic House of Design, I featured two eco-friendly pieces that were the talk of opening night. The wine crate art piece features the salvaged wooden labels from old wine crates. It’s completely custom, so we can highlight wines that you love from crates you have collected. It serves as memory of great wines that you’ve enjoyed with friends and family. It’s a great conversation piece!

The striped buffet is a sustainable, organic and contemporary piece. It is made of reclaimed teak. The stripes are formed from scrap wood, which is why each is different hue and adds a “rainbow” effect.

We’re also loving these earth-friendly frames from Dedo, which are made from the unusable scraps of woodworkers. For Father’s Day Studio Chameleon will be doing a special event with Dedo. Be on the lookout for more details!

We hope you’re inspired to find ways to be both green and beautiful this Earth Day!
