As consumers grow ever conscious about the impact their purchases have on the environment, designers like Designtree have become increasingly creative about how they source materials for their projects. The Frankie Lamp spotted at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York this past weekend is an inspiring case in point. Made with FSC-certified beech wood and 100 percent recycled and recyclable PET, this beautiful felt lamp comes in a couple of different designs.
The Frankie lamp exemplifies the best in green interior design. In addition to the felt lamp shade made from recycled plastic  and the natural timber base taken from timber harvested from carefully monitored sources , it has great aesthetic appeal as well. The grey shade contrasts with the red braided cable and pale timber – making this an ideal choice for either home or office.
The lamp is also health-conscious. Entirely non-toxic and non-allergenic, the lamp is also UV stabilized to resist color fading or moisture damage. Which means that it will continue to look good and perform well for years to come. This is just one of many awesome designs down at ICFF in New York , so come on down for a look if you’re in town, or check out the rest of our coverage  to drool from afar.
