Eco-friendly furniture design by Michael Iannone
Michael Iannone is one of the people that inspired me to start this blog. When I first came across his furniture, I loved the designs . . . they are modern, unlike anything I’d really seen before, and looked well crafted. When I went to Iannone Design’s website, I discovered that most of the designs are eco-friendly with a commitment to locally sourced FSC certified wood and low-VOC topcoats. So, thank you Michael, for promoting the idea that design can be both stylish and sustainable.
Here are a few designs that I particularly like:
made with FSC certified plywood, kirei (made of stalks of the sorghum plant) doors and white gloss laminate
In addition to these pieces, Iannone will do custom work such as the coffee table below, which was fabricated for a client living in a Philadelphia row house. The wood is salvaged fir framing lumber from the house itself . . . pretty cool don’t you think?
Check out more of Iannone Design on their website – they have such a variety of interesting products it would be hard for me to choose just one.
