Lounge for a Lifetime in Bamboo

Frank Gehry's cardboard Wiggle Chair is a favorite of mine (unfortunately it's not reclaimed or recycled - it was the 70s and 80s, of course), and there have been many attempts since to re-create something similar, but sustainably. I have yet to see such a strong resemblance as this. The bamboo Lounge and Dining Chairs … Continue reading Lounge for a Lifetime in Bamboo

Go Eco and Off-the-Shoulder

We show off a lot of ecoSkin fashion around EcoSalon because well, we like their style. And now they've captured the latest fashion forward off-the-shoulder trend with the Mercury Top.
