The collection Sur la Paille, consisting of unique furniture pieces, is created as a part of the Talents a la Carte project, which aims to encourage ordinary people to take care of the nature, and gives support to interior designers who make creative and healthy modern furniture from eco friendly materials for healthy, sustainable and comfortable green living.

Raphael Groelly presented his collection SUR LA PAILLE of modern furniture inspired by country home decorating ideas of the last century, when plastics and contemporary man-made materials were not available for farmers. The designer used natural materials, like straw, birch wood, wheat stacks, linen and stone, turning ordinary items into exclusive and very decorative furniture pieces in eco style.

Interesting and original furniture design ideas, combined with natural materials, impress and delight. The storage shelf Galetas looks rustic and innovative. Its niche is made out of the rough plaster and placed on the legs created of sustainable birch wood logs.
