Sustainable Design: Chic Bathroom Accessories in Natural Materials

There’s nothing more timeless than a space which goes back to nature and blends into the surrounding environment. Think back to your days spent at your grandparents’ lakeside lodge or those nights roasting S’mores in a open fire pit on the beach. Wasn’t it glorious to spend time outdoors?

Now, after hours spent in front of screens or sitting in traffic, we need to do the same at home: get ourselves closer to nature, so we can take a deep breath and relax.

Luckily, if you’re the sort who appreciates true craftsmanship and the perfect imperfections created by nature, there are lots of materials found in both land and sea that are being used to produce exquisite pieces to connect you back to where it all began.

Here’s a look at some of our favorites.

MATERIAL: PLANT

BALI, made from organic water hyacinth.  A free-floating aquatic plant, water hyacinth is used for making textiles, paper, and fish traps.
