Good and green. San Francisco-based Branch believes that good design can be sustainable design. Everything they sell -- bedding, furniture, lighting, tabletop items -- is sustainable in some way or another.
Products are made from organically grown fiber, recycled or reclaimed stock, sustainably harvested wood, or from a naturally occurring, renewable material.
Branch's goal is to change shopping from an activity where people simply purchase products that are appealing, without any thought to where they come from.
They want Branch to be "A place where [people can] buy products that are wholly appealing—sexy, even—but that are also manufactured and brought to market in such a way that [they don't] have to feel guilty about buying—or, eventually, disposing of—them."
We love Branch's selection of green items, and their philosophy.
