13-07-2011 Eco Design Trend: Driftwood Interiors

As part of a move towards living more sustainable lifestyles, interior designers are influencing the demand for the use of natural, organic woods such as driftwood. The style result: furnishing and finishes that are aged and untreated. Style aficionados are abandoning the cleanliness of the popular minimalist style and are seeking something more interesting, according to Germany’s Heimtextil Trends. “People are looking for distinctive individualistic features marked by imperfection, not perfection,” they say. A forerunner in this eco trend is French manufacturer, the Bleu Nature who offer a very unconventional wall made from driftwood. The ends of the wood logs form a relief, much like pixels on a screen. Rustic at its best.
