While visiting Loft, a store that features sustainable furniture options in Austin, we fell in love with Environment Furniture's gorgeous and green furniture options. While not a new company, EFI is doing such a great job of combining eco and chic that we think they deserve another look...

Environment Furniture has one idea that they've built their business on: the fundamentals of design come from nature. They not only create furniture that have beautiful lines and modern aesthetics, they create furniture that is environmentally responsible. Their wood material is reclaimed from old buildings and barns in Brazil making every piece of furniture imbued with a deep sense of history, not to mention a delightful weathered look that can't be recreated artificially.
Wood material not reclaimed from old Brazilian architecture is harvested responsibly from the Brazilian countryside, and woods like Brazilian Peroba Rosa give their pieces an exotic and dramatic twist. Environment Furniture doesn't just make environmentally friendly furniture, they also run a business committed to helping out all sorts of socially responsible causes. A purchase from Environment Furniture can leave you with gorgeous modern furniture and a guilt-free conscious.
In Austin, you can learn more about EFI at Loft in the 2nd Street District. In Los Angeles, you can visit their L.A. showroom at HD Buttercup 3225 Helms Avenue.
