These picks go beyond recycling.
we're all wanting to escape outside into nature while also being moored inside the homea dichotomy that's pushing design to get wilder: greening living spaces and bringing the outdoors in. Sustainable furniture is taking the lead at design shows worldwide, with studios introducing pieces that use new and unexpected materials that go beyond recycling, to a type of technological biofabrication that transforms lobster shells and apple skins into plastic and leather. And designers themselves are campaigning to conserve forests while also championing wood as a renewable material. At home, this rewilding could mean stretching out on a Sengu sofa made of recovered ocean plastic or perching atop the sustainably sourced wood of the Nest lounger.
