We love to see designers using reclaimed wood in their products – it’s more beautiful, interesting, and of course more environmentally-friendly than virgin wood. A great example is GreenTea Designs, an online furniture store that sells Asian-inspired contemporary furniture made from recycled and reclaimed wood.
Like a good matcha, GreenTea’s success is all in the blending: blending east with west, old with new, and style with sustainability. According to the founder, Greentea was born of the desire to blend Asian traditional styles with contemporary Western practicalities. But the company doesn’t only sell new furniture – they also deal in traditional Asian antiques from Japan, Korea and China, which can all be custom tailored to suit any buyer’s taste by GreenTea’s in house carpenter. + GreenTea Designs
