Las Vegas Market Trends – Part 4 – sustainable

Reclaimed wood, eco-friendly pro­duc­tion, "green" fab­rics — sus­tain­abil­ity is a trend that will surely be with us for a long time to come.  Inter­est is grow­ing among both man­u­fac­tur­ers and con­sumers in how best to pro­tect nat­ural resources and min­i­mize impact on the planet. Many exhibitors were show­ing their "green", but these caught my eye.

From the show­rooms of Jaipur Home and Clas­sic Home Fur­nish­ings.

And per­haps my favorite item from the entire Mar­ket was this gor­geous, organic, hand-pounded bark wall­pa­per from Caba.  My own pic­tures did not do it jus­tice, and while these (from their web­site) are a lit­tle blurry, you can see some of the detail.  The woven and lace pat­terns can over­lay a painted wall, or another layer of orig­i­nal style Bark­skin. The tex­tures are sim­ply fan­tas­tic and the col­ors range from nat­u­rals to some dra­matic brights.  I can't wait to try this paper!
