We've been seeing Eleek's name around in green circles for quite some time now, but we'd never really cruised over to their site to check the company out because ... well, honestly, as renters we've never had a need for light fixtures or countertops or sinks or hardware.
But, yesterday we spent some time clicking around. What a cool company.
Based out of Portland (why are so many impressive green ventures in Portland?), Eleek is committed to being a low-impact company. They operate on green electricity, they recycle their silicon molds, they use salvaged and recycled wood ... and lots of other good stuff. Read about it all here.
They take pride in doing things the old-fashioned way -- everything is crafted by hand.
We're really in love with their light fixtures (like the Jester, above). They're so unique .. some are strange, some are elegant, some are classic.
And, now we realize, the even have stuff for renters. Check out their lamps.
