Sustainable design has progressed way beyond burlap sacks and tree stumps. In the last few years, there's been a definite uptick in the market for chic yet eco-friendly design. New retailers seeking to create a stylish marketplace for environmentally sound products have been booming, and Vivavi is definitely at the top of the list...
Vivavi features products from a wide variety of sustainable companies/designers, including Amenity, Bart Bettencourt, J. Persing, Loop Organic, and Fire & Water. Josh Dorfman, the founder of both Vivavi and its online companion resource, Modern Green Living, also hosts The Lazy Environmentalist, a nationally broadcast radio show that showcases stylish and innovative green trends, technologies, products and services that make green living desirable and, more importantly, doable.
Vivavi's showroom is set in a 2-bedroom unit in the Riverhouse luxury green condo building overlooking the Hudson River in downtown Manhattan. The showroom features a sustainably furnished dining room, master bedroom, nursery, office nook, and entryway.
Vivavi's mantra says it all: live modern + tread lightly™
