When it comes to buying furniture and living “G” the options are pretty bleak. I think I have seen the same recycled crate seats again and again on website after website. Look, yes recycling is cool, but really I don’t want to furnish my house with recycled milk crates. It’s just not “G”. Are you feeling me. Well, lucky for the G Living staff, there was this company just down the street called Viesso, founded by two brothers, which makes lushes modern cleanly designed furnisher from all “G” materials. Viesso was the company which made all of the couches you see on the Real G shows and our outdoor benches. Our couches are made from sustainable harvested wood, natural latex and recycled synthetic micro suede. They feel amazing.
But todays post isn’t about our couches, its about Viesso’s new line of Pool / Patio furniture (on sale). We now have a need for some modern outdoor furniture, since we just moved out to Palm Desert and we have these very large decks wrapping around our new saltwater pool. Okay, not our saltwater pool, my saltwater pool. And when you look at the decks, they are just screaming for some cool furniture. Right now I just have these semi-tacky very cheap target type patio tables. Normally I would have to look at a store like Design within Reach, which sells the right style of furniture, but I don’t think there is anything green about the materials from which they are made. But with Viesso, and this is why I love these guys, they not only nail the modern design, they made sure by default everything is made “G”. Look at this stuff. Just so clean.
Here are the details: The clear, clean lines of this collection – minimalist, stark, uncompromising – are the eye-catching feature of Mamagreen’s Icon range. The brawny character of the broad FSC-Certified recycled teak slats unite in contrast with the brash gleam of the stainless steel frames. Icon has tables of teak and stainless steel, lounged in Batyline®, benches, bistro sets, and stacking chairs and stools. This luxurious, over-sized furniture comes in a variety of colors in cushions of all-weather Sunbrella® fabrics. Using FSC-Certified recycled teakwood, this collection is ideal for both the home as well as hospitality situations.
