Designers & Agents [2], the premiere fashion tradeshow kicks off THIS MORNING in New York. Inhabitat has teamed up with Designers & Agents [2] this year to help curate the ‘Green Room’ [3] – a gallery space dedicated to environmental design, showcasing eco fashion collections as well as green furniture, books and products. We have enlisted Inhabitat’s favorite green artist Edina Tokodi [4] to create a site-specific ‘living’ installation out of moss and INKE’s recycled wallpaper cutouts [5] (see above), as well as putting together a gorgeous showcase of green furniture from our favorite eco furniture designers such as Uhuru [6], Molo [7], and Daniel Michalik [8] Inhabitat’s Sustainable Style [9] team of Abigail Doan [10] and Jill Fehrenbacher [11] will be in the Green Room each day to offer up sustainable design tips for D&A attendees [3].

As part of D&A’s ever-expanding green initiative, the ‘Green Room’ [3] was launched last year in 2007. This environmentally focused design space will showcase array of green furniture and home decor, sustainable fabric installations, green style accessories, as well as valuable resources and information on living and designing with a sustainable outlook.
