Innovative Furniture Design Ideas Blending Rustic Chic with Unusual Eco Friendly Materials
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.
The stool Banque is steady and durable. Created with natural resin and wheat, this unique furniture piece demonstrates very original design, enriched with warm golden brown color and shiny surface texture.
