Lately I've really been thinking about investing in pieces that are high-quality and will last a lifetime. Getting older, I recognize the value of spending a little bit more to find pieces that I will love for a long time. Not that Istill don't love a good deal on an IKEA piece every now and then; I've just started keeping our eyes open for pieces I'd like to invest in.
I've been a fan of the designs coming out of Austin design firm Laura Britt Design for awhile now. Laura and her team create colorful, inspiring and well, exciting spaces that I enjoy drooling over (and sometimes even finding ideas from). So I was pretty delighted to find out that Laura Britt and her designers have created their own line of sustainable furniture.
Vervano was started due to a need that Laura Britt noticed in her practice: that there just wasn't the level of sustainable, high-quality and modern furniture style she was looking for to use in her projects. Vervano is an eco-conscious furnishings line featuring sustainably sourced wood, mortise and tenon joinery, low VOC finishes, plant-based foam and even uses a Central Texas fabricator.
I love all the eco-friendly elements to the Vervano line, but I'm also really enjoying how the line is a great mixture of traditional and modern details. The Clayton Chair is a perfect example with the angles of the arms and the great walnut wood finish. Check out more information on the Vervano website.
Have you invested in a furniture piece recently? What was it, and why did you decide to go the high-quality versus cheap deal route?
